Appearance is a light yellow with a fizzy white head. The smell was great with a lot of orange and lime scents coming through strong. The taste was nice enough with some of those lime and orange flavors, although it seemed more of a zest in the beginning than a major part of the beer. The mouthfeel was light and refreshing. Nice for summer, almost like a lime radler, but overall not as impressive as I had hoped.

Poured into a tumbler: color is straw, opaque and dense looking, nice bright white head that presents 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to a ring and light top.
Smell is light, fresh, floral, with some grassy and earthy hop undertones.
Taste is more towards the wheat malt base with biscuit, bread and toast intermingling; spice and additions create a floral flavor, light lemongrass and even some lavender.
Mouthfeel is pleasant at first with nice flavors then drying hops and carbonation overtake. I'd like the flavors to last a bit longer.
Overall, a very nice wheat beer with good wheat flavor presence and unique aromas from the additions.
