Poured a honey color, quite cloudy, with a small white colored head. Aroma was easily detectable, but not overpowering and consisted of a sweet orange and grapefruit combination. Very inviting. Taste follows the nose with a sweet rather than tart citrus (mandarin orange and grapefruit) bitterness on a barely detectable crystal malt backbone ending in a slightly dry finish. A bit warming as well. Mouthfeel was smooth with a light-medium body. Overall, although this offering is not overly complex, I wish this wasn't a limited edition as I really enjoyed this one. Could easily drink several of these and went back to the store to get the last bottle.

4/5 rDev -5%
Appearance: Great cotton-like foam. Solid golden. Definitely has the traditional look of a filtered wheat ale. Carbonation is a bit absent.
Smell: Fresh grapefruit and grass. This li'l sumpin' sumpin' also has a slight herbal/floral scent. IPA qualities all around.
Taste/Mouthfeel: This really tastes like an IPA. Bitter grapefruit hops and some floral notes. The grapefruit notes fit the smell, but the floral flavors are definitely faint. Pretty full-bodied like a good IPA, which I wouldn't expect in a wheat ale, and I definitely like.
Overall Drinkability: A suprising ale. The alcohol really hits you on this one. Great flavors and smells.
