From a 12oz can.

Pours a hazy straw color, white fluffy head, fades at a decent rate and leaves some patchy lacing on the glass.

Smell has mostly a lemon zest aroma from the citrus, dash of coriander and even a bit of orange.

Taste is surprisingly tame and watery, from the nose I thought the flavor would be stronger, the primary flavor is the citrusy zest, assertive carbonation borders on fizzy, taste fades away very quickly, yeasty aftertaste, the lack of body makes this more disappointing than what it could have been.

As others have said, probably a good stepping stone but I'd sooner reach for a superior Allagash White.

I bought a can of this and drank it at 7venth sun brewery. Poured into a snifter. Pale,cloudy yellow color,decent white heading left some globbage around the glass. A lot of action in the glass.

Nose is mostly of corriander, a touching of spicey hops and a bit zesty.

Taste is just not meshing for me. Crisp wheat malts at first, a little touch of corriander and a kind of zestly orange finish. Traces of black pepper are left lingering.

Light bodied,decent carbonation and leaves slight buttery slickness.

This beer really didn't do it for me. Seemed to be a little dull in the flavor department.
