Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, opaque, orange-tan coloring with a halo of white head. Nose of toasted grains and subtle citrus notes. You really have to dig for the aromas, though. Flavors are smooth and sweet, with a toasted backbone supporting tangy blood orange and subtle spicing. Smooth bodied, with a clean, smooth finish. The aftertaste is very subtle citrus. Very tasty, but could really use having the volume turned up on everything else.

12 oz can - pours hazy orange-tan color with a 1 finger white head. Appearance not very appealing to me. The aroma is orangey, some sweetness & yeast, slight honey notes, however the smell is very mild. The taste was honey sweetness upfront, some orange/ citrus favors and some bitterness from the blood orange peel on the end. Medium body with medium carbonation, I thought it has more body than other wheat ales I have tried. Overall tasty beer but slightly sweet for me.

Poured a cloudy yellow-orange type color with two finger head that quickly dies with minimal lacing. Get some yeast and spices in the aroma but it is very mild. The yeast keeps this beer smooth and fluffy, other than that it has a light body, the orange comes out akin to a bitter citric spice and there does seem to be some clove or peppers as well. Finishes easy, which is a plus, with touches of sweetness. Not much in the beer but what's in there works.
