12 ounce bottle
Served in a weizen glass
A - I followed the instructions for the pour. I swirled with the yeast at the bottom of my bottle to ensure a nice ring of head and citrus aroma. This beer is a hazy orange color. I got about an inch of off-white head.
S - I really have to search for the citrus. It is mild. I get some orange and lemon zest.
T - It tastes like a blue moon. I was hoping for some of the grapefruit and orange to come through, but it is bland like a piece of cardboard.
M - It feels like a wheat beer. Sadly, this is the only aspect of this beer that does not disappoint.
O - I wondered why this was listed as a wheat beer and not an IPA. My first drink answered that question. It tastes like Blue Moon. Put an orange slice in it and that is what you have. There are no discernible IPA characteristics to this beer. It's just a below average wheat beer.
