Packaged 4/23/14.

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of wheat, grain, fruit, and slight spicy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with wheat, grain, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but a bit too thick in the mouthfeel to be a refreshing Summer beer in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange with little head. Smells of wheat and slight orange. Tastes of wheat with slight citrus, nice finish, with good, heavy carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer.
