12oz can into miller lite pint glass
Appearance is a clear straw yellow with a white head that stays around quite long for the style. Tons of citrus rind in the smell and some wheat light/dry notes. Taste is again orange rindy and wheaty with some hints of yeast, finishes with a light spiciness (from the hops or coriander?). No off notes. Mouthfeel is light body and medium/high carb and some dryness (not much for the style).. Very easy to drink
An interesting with that leans heavily towards the orange rind instead of the yeast and spice. Very well suited for warm weather drinking. Nice to see a light beer like this pulled off with no off notes that are so easy to come out in these light beers. Nothing wrong with this one, I just prefer the yeasty/spicy wits.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
A: A very light yellow color with a finger of head. A little hazy as most belgian wits and not much lacing.
S: I could smell the orange peel and the wheat, but something was a little off. Whenever I put my nose to this it seemed a little off putting.
T: I taste the wheat and the orange. A little bit of spice. Tastes a little watery to me. Nothing special but nothing bad.
MF: Nice and crisp. Great carb on this beer. This is a great beer in warm weather. And its in the 80s today. This is going down nicely.
O: Nothing special. This is a great summer beer. Has a little more going on than a Blue Moon or Shock Top.

Served from tap in to a shaker. Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a half finger amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and very subtle fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this one wasn't too bad with all of the usual aspects o e would expect, but sadly it didn't really do much more than that for me. It could have used a little more of a sweet profile to help balance out the earthy notes going one. Still not too bad for a nice sunny day out.
Serving type: on-tap
