Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

3.2/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Serving Type: Bottle, well within best consumption date

Appearance: Cloudy with a heavy orange/gold tinge that becomes much more bold with brighter light showing through

Smell: The citrus is very up front, then immediately after follows the traditional smell that many of the mainstream white wheat ales (such as blue moon) exhibit.

Taste: As with the smell, the orange and citrus flavor is noticeable instantly, it is a very natural flavoring and is a nice precursor to the light wheaty and bready after effect. The citrus lingers momentarily and grows into tart right before it is gone leaving you with the other spices.

Mouthfeel: The beer has two very distinct flavor sequences as described above. In the first, the beer hits your tongue and settles into your mouth very smoothly, but as time grows on the carbonation gives the beer a frothy feel that lingers around even after you have finished drinking. This is most likely due to the lack of creaminess, which is this beers major downfall.

Comments: Overall this beer is very good, it falls short in a few areas, but it makes up for it with its unique flavor. I can see how up in the north someone would try it and not be convinced by its qualities. But if you were down in Houston, Texas with me experiencing temperatures consistently over 100 degrees, it sure is a great, refreshing wheat ale to have in your cooler. You can bash it in many places, but its drinkability and refreshing flavor make it a good bet for hot summer days.
