A - pours a pale orange with good head at first, that quickly disappears. Decent lacing, not much head retention.
S - orange peels, grains, wheat, bread. A light nose, but smells wonderful.
T - The most amazing blend for a wheat ale. I don't usually prefer wheat ales, but this brew is the most unique and drinkable beer I have ever had in this category. Crisp and refreshing, citrus notes, faint bitterness to close to bite just a bit for some lip smacking goodness.
O - This beer defies the odds for me. I can't place my finger on it. I don't really enjoy any other beers in this category, nor would I choose to drink any in this category. This beer needs its own genre and that would be ass kicking, highly (and dangerously) drinkable summer ale. It is the quintessential american summer ale and is an absolute must try. Note - although it goes against the grain for the beer purist, you must try it with an orange peel. This beer paves the way for the right of spring in Michigan. Amen Bells. Amen Oberon.

Poured bottle packaged on 5/29/14 into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a hazy medium gold color with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly with minimal lacing.
S-Smell is of light fruits and citrus, hops, and wheat.
T-Tastes of light citrus and sweet malt up front, followed by some wheat bread taste and finished with some dry hops for a nice amount of bitterness.
M-Mouthfeel is light, tangy, and highly carbonated.
O-Overall a refreshing beer but no outstanding qualities about it.
