Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (Bottled On DEC 2011) into a pilsner glass.
A moderate pour yields a 1-finger snow-white head of large, soapy bubbles that quickly dies down to a miniscule dusting and thin collar. The body is a clear honey orange that softens to a golden straw around the edges. A light amount of small, slow-rising carbonation bubbles can be seen trickling upward to reinforce the vanishing head. Some decent lacing can be seen attempting to cling to the glass throughout consumption but fails to last for very long.
The nose is primarily wheat-based with aromas of fruity yeast and orange. The wheat aroma offers a slightly grainy and rather rustic character while the banana and orange aromas add a soft and sweet character. Combined, the aromas compliment each other.
Orange and wheat flavors tingle the taste buds with notes of orange peal, oily lemon, and a good helping of ripe banana. Swallowing the beer allows more of the earthy wheat flavors to come out. However, this is quickly overtaken by the citrus and banana flavors. As the wheat flavor fades, the oily lemon and orange flavors become more striking and end up lingering on the tongue as an aftertaste. A slight grassy bitterness slowly finds its way into the aftertaste.
Light bodied with excellent carbonation, this is a very easy-drinking beer. As expected, the body is light and playful, having an almost seltzer water feel. The carbonation is nice and fizzy, which assists in the drinkability tremendously. A slightly foamy swallow hinders the crispness of the beer slightly but isn't terrible.

Pours a very pale yellow. Has a good foamy head, but otherwise reminds me of a mass-brew. Smells of straw and yeast and spices, WTF? Not expected.
Has a slightly sour, bubbly taste with only a hint of the clementine I was promised. It's certainly light, so it would be good on a hot day.
I was expecting much more based on their good reviews. Overall, nothing special. Ok light beer + fruit but much more to say. I'd skip it.
