12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow orange color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready, tart, twang, and slight sweet wheat. A little fruitiness and spice in there too.

Taste: Same as above. Tiny bit of bitterness too

Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Not a bad pale wheat. Could have used more hops and/or spice, but still a decent one.

Serving type: bottle

This is a solid summer beer. Not as heavy and thick as some other wheat beers I've had, which makes it a great session beer on a hot summer day. Crisp and refreshing yet full-flavored. Good balance of hops and malt with a solid but not overbearing earthiness from the wheat. Hints of coriander and orange peel on the nose and finish.

Definitely worth picking up a six-pack on your way to a BBQ
