Poured from a bottle into a mug. Produces a very thin head which dissipates quickly. Golden with a hint of orange hue. For an unfiltered beer, there is curiously no hint of sediment. Medium to high amount of bubbly carbonation seen around the edges and in towards the middle. Smell is of wheat malts, astringent. taste is of wheat, orange, honey. Feels heavier than expected not he palette and salty. Overall a decent but forgettable brew.

I'm trying not to be too harsh, but I really could not drink this beer. It poured well, had a nice hazy unfiltered look with a descent head (what you should expect from an unfiltered wheat beer), but immediately I could tell that I wasn't going to like it. The aroma was overwhelmingly of banana esters and sweet off 'bubble-gum' like flavors. I took a sip and it was just more of the same. After two sips I decided that I couldn't drink it. It's probably just my personal preference, since I HATE bananas. If it was a flavor that I enjoyed this probably could have been a good beer. Odd that it has such a distinct and odd flavor profile. Oh well....
