Reminds me of a cross between a whit and an American Wheat Ale. It has some of the whit characteristics like corriander and orange peal...but finishes with just a light twang of sourish lemons...or maybe sour apples...

I like my wheat beers a little sweeter. Not a huge fan of the light sour finish but some will enjoy that.
