Tastes a little better than it smells, but it's a bit thin. Pretty smooth overall but nothing really memorable.

I like this concept, a hoppy wheat ale, unfiltered. A lot of my top beers are unfiltered wheats. Although I'm not a huge hop head. Anyway, they strike a nice balance here. And the shapely red-headed young woman on the label boosts the "Look" rating from 4.25 to an easy 5. It's the little things in life that make it great. I might have to look for this beer again. Or maybe I can find Ophelia, the red-head instead. I'd like to buy her a beer.

Hippy taste smooth going down just like a wheat, weak finish

Appearance : molten, fluffy white 1 finger head. It leaves delicate lace as it descends down to about a ring. The body is completely hazy, signature of a wheat ale, and is mango-orange in color.

Aroma : lots of nice fruity esters out front. I can also detect yeast, orange, and fresh flowers after a rain. Slight orange skin. Nowhere here does this have any off-note hoppiness or rankness. It's very calm and very soothing.

Taste : it's full of wheat, with a very nice balance of Orange, mango, leaf, and fresh grass. The hoppiness is polite, in traces of twig, mango skin, leaf, and tangelo.

Mouthfeel : a wall of creaminess right from the start. It retains a wall of this creaminess, being medium bodied and very appropriately carbonated all the way through. The finish is slightly dry and leaves more of that slight woodiness in the hop.

Overall : I was looking for something different and this did the trick. How this is not collaboratively rated "very good" or "outstanding" is beyond me. It's a little generous with the "hoppy" title, so hopheads may not approve - but it is first and foremost a smooth wheat beer with a slight twist of leafy twiggy hop. It's just damn delicious.
