Served in Brooklyn Brewery pokal glass
A - a pale yellow with a slight haze, bubbles coming up from the bottom (very persistent), and a white head lacing some lacing.
S - the most obvious note to pick up on is the wheat; this makes the base notes which allow the zest of the hops to contrast in a really nice and noticeable way and the and some zesty element.
T - the swallowing of the beer lets one notice the crisp intensity of the carbonation and also the dryness of the alcohol, something not apparent from just holding the beer in my mouth. the finish culminates in a wheaty-booze-ness that is great, while the aftertaste is quick to fade but is a faint (and i do mean FAINT) hint of the orange zest from the hops.
MF&D - I think I should mention I am drinking this at about 3 in the afternoon, I couldn't wait untill 5, (as my sister says, "its always 5 o'clock somewhere!") therefore I find this beer amazingly easy and pleasing to drink. though a bit thick, I do not find this to be a detriment, only it holds it back from being perfect for this style. Though the consistency is really great for a beer, and does indeed make me want to drink it all night.

The Original is great....it poured a clear golden color with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The scent carries biscuit and grass like tones. The taste is well balanced....its starts with nice bready push then finishes slightly bitter coming off the pallet very clean!!! The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with great carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer great for sessioning as it is very easy drinking...I would have this again....and again....and again.
