3.41/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Shock Top Wietbier glass.

The color is a hazy/cloudy yellow with a tint of orange and three fingers of foamy white head that left a slight of lacing on the glass.

The smell is pretty tangy with a big orange and tangerine aroma. There is a slight lemongrass aroma there as well that adds to the spicy citrus twang.

The taste has more of a wheat presence then the aroma. The bready flavor is the big factor here with some tangerine or orange rind toward the back. There is a slight bitterness in the back but does not impart much to the flavor.

The feel of this beer is light bodied and goes down pretty easy. There is a nice slight crisp feel and is nice and smooth going down.

3.79/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Cloudy apricot hue with a thin film of a head; lacing is okay

S: Orange peel, tangerine; some peppery spice; also a musty, grainy--somewhat bready--undertone

T: Better complexities in the flavors than the aromas: some orange and other citrus with subtle cloves and pepper; they work well off the subtle grassy, grainy malt undertone

F: A bit thin--especially in the finish; there is a pleasant creaminess up front

O: A refreshing beer: I wish the aroma and mouth feel matched up with the flavors because it's actually pretty tasty
