look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

A- Poured a hazy, dark yellow color. A thick looking white head came up and quickly dissipated. There was a little bit of lacing, but nothing to write home about.

S- I really liked the smell. A healthy amount of citrus, but more sweet citrus than I usually get from white ales. There is also some sweet malt and a little spice thrown in.

T- Starts off with a slight acidity, then sits on the tongue and the spice tingles. There is a slight bitterness at the back of the taste and some citrus after-taste hangs out for a while.

MF- Not much head to speak of, but the tighter carbonation stuck around.

Overall, this is a nice little white ale. I probably won't have too many more due to the season, but I'll look for some more next year.

3.41/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy yellow pour with a fluffy white crown.

First smell is orange peels, mild yeast and coriander.

Just like it smells, orange peel, wheat grain, coriander and I swear bananas have a showing now and then.

Mouthfeel is refreshing and on the lighter side. A brew I feel is meant for the summer months during the day. I could really only handle a few in a session-but that's what happens with most wheats anyway for me. I really do not like comparing beers but for those wanting to try this, for me it is like a Blue Moon but with actually more orange.

Every brew has its place in the sun. Decent fare.
