This tasty treat pours a wonderful orange-pumpkin color with a slight haze. The pour resulted in a 1/2 inch head of foam which quickly dissipated into a very slender ring around the edge of the glass.

The scent of this beer can be characterized as very hoppy with lots of floral and citrus undertones. Not overpowering by any means, just different than what I was expecting from a wheat beer.

The taste of this beer is absolutely delicious, my only comment is that the mouth feel seemed just a bit thin.

I've probably only had this 50 times in the last 18 months. Served in a tulip glass in my brand new beer dungeon.

A - Light amber / golden / orange with white head. Very clear for a wheat. Nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

S - Fruity (Passion, orange, citrus) hoppiness and a bit of wheat.

T - Very nice crisp wheat with fruity citrus tones. Finishes with a bit of pine hoppiness and more fruitiness.

M - The wheat brew makes for a very nice light mouthfeel. The finish is dry and fruity on the back end with lingering hop goodness.

O - An awesome summer beer that I will drink anytime of the year it turns up in my area (which is not often enough). A tossup for my favorite year-round FFF with Robert the Bruce.

A: Bright golden yellow, with little to no head. Lit up my weizen glass.

S: Light hops with plenty of fruit, apricots & a touch of citrus.

T: Nice hop presence with a touch of wheat and citrus.

M: A bit light on the carbonation, nice clean finish.

D: Refreshing and easy to drink. Quite the summer quencher.

When will I be able to buy it in PA???
