Hazy golden hue with a crisp mouth feel; it has an aroma and taste that is reminiscent of citrus; more so of oranges. I'm a fan of these types of beers because I much rather pair my beer with a slice of orange of any other citrus. It's reminiscent other other beers like Shock Top but it has a distinction all it's own. I'm a big fan of wheat beers; the murky haze of a wheat ale makes me feel like I'm drinking something hearty and not just beer flavored water!

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanitas pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $7.99 (w/ VONS card) for a 6-pack
Purchased: Feb. 16, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 16, 2014
Misc.: Enjoy by May 2014

Poured a golden hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides of the glass on the way down. Below average amount of light film on the way down.

First thought of smell was, ‘Yeah, this is a Sam Adams beer.’ Got orange rind, spicy notes, light Circus Peanuts, cloves, wheat, lemon, honey, coriander, nutmeg and some tropical notes.

Tasted honey, orange rind, coriander, wheat, grassy hops, cloves, light sour fruits - kiwi, grapes and still those tropical hops.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Slightly abrupt finish.

Overall this was a decent witbier. I’d have it again, especially the other five that I have in the 6-pack.

A: murky orange with some brown notes. No head poured on the glass given to me. Looks like mango juice

S: orange, coriander, lemons

T: orange, coriander, clove, sweet lemon, is that vanilla? I think so

M: medium with a pretty high amount of carbonation

O: a step above a blue moon, but nothing great. It tastes a little artificial, with some cardboardy notes. Mouthfeel and carbonation levels a fine
