Had one of these with my steak at outback steak house.
Got from draft on standard pint glass.
Thin white head about half a finger
Gold color that was extremely hazy great unfiltered look.
The smell was good had a ipa like hop aroma. With a good hint of being grainy.
The flavor was not as strong as I expected but was very good. Hoppy with a grainy kind of fruity taste.
Overall I would recommend it to a friend.

12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.

A: Pours an orange-tinted gold so cloudy that one cannot even see the shadow of their fingers on the other side of the glass. Forms a thin, short-lived pale head which becomes a ring rather quickly.

S: The aroma is reminiscent of a spiced, mulled orange juice, with heavy citrus notes shot through with coriander and herbal spiciness. There's a very faint touch of funk as well, as though that orange juice were a bit past its expiration date.

T: Sour, tart citrus rolls through the palate with this beer, a mix of orange and grapefruit, both more sour than sweet as if a shade underripe. There's a heavy dose of coriander as well, staying solidly level from opening to finish, and a faint aura of funk drifting by in the background. As the beer warms, the taste profile remains the same, oddly enough.

M: Light, lively, and inviting to drink quickly, this is a refreshing wheat beer.

O: Not a bad take on a witbier, if a bit less complex than I'd prefer.
