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.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of orange peels and wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there's a little less flavors of orange peels and more of wheat. No spices are detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and goes down easily. It reminds me a lot like a Blue Moon except that it has more flavors of orange peels.
