look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours a foggy gold-orange with a foamy two inch head. Dissipates to a decent cap and a nice sticky lacing you usually see on their beers.

S - Scent of yeast, citrus, and spice. The yeast is heavy at first, but the citrus and spice strengthens as the beer warms.

T - Wheat and citrus up in the front. Nice peppery notes that last into the aftertaste. Almost numb my tongue a little.

M - Medium body, a little too much carbonation.

O - A pretty interesting beer, the spice is a nice new flavor, though a little overpowering. Making the other flavors heavier and lightening the carbonation would add to it. Good beer for the summer time.
