look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pint glass.

Poured a hazy golden straw. I swirled the yeast sediment in the bottle and topped off my pint w/ it. Beautiful frothy head, light and wispy.

Taste is bitter orange rind and saaz hop spiceyness followed with a smooth and gratifying wheat malt finish. Very nice hot summer brew.

Full of flavor but not at all heavy. I could down the whole six pack whilst looking out at Spider Lake.

4.1/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very thin layer of head, slight orange color.

Smell: Has a very strong orange smell, not too many other smells that I pick up.

Taste: There is a strong orange, bitter taste. Pretty smooth with a slight spiciness.

Overall: I really enjoy this beer and is a nice change of pace from IPAs i have been drinking as of recently. Its somewhat light but has a nice orange taste, not over the top.

$4 bottle from Buffalo Wild Wings in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.

Appearance: Orange sort of color with a nice two finger head on it. I don't recall the clarity on it, since I wasn't paying too much attention. Decent lacing. Pours pretty nicely.

Smell: Refreshing. Quite a bit of citrus, with some slight hoppiness.

Taste/feel: Also refreshing, with plenty of citrus and grain. Reasonably high carbonation to help with that, yes, I'm using the word again, refreshing flavor/feel. There's a solid amount of orange and orange peel sort of oil/bitterness in this brew, but yet it never becomes overwhelming. Surprised the alcohol is 6.2%, as it feels like an even 5%, but what's an extra percent? Anyway, I'd gladly have another.

3.4/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear light amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down and left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with hints of lemon citrus.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and is mostly dominated by flavors of wheat along with light bits of lemon citrus.
M: It feels a bit higher than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but lacks complexity—I didn't get any of the coriander or spices in the taste.
