12oz brown bottle. No freshness date.
Pours a very murky, rich peach coloured beer, large bubbles and a snapping white foam head that settles to nothing quite quickly. Loads of yeast! (unfiltered)
Sweet bread, light citrus, faint herbal and a bit of grain in the aroma. Very faint nose, overall.
Smooth, medium-bodied. An upfront malt sweetness and strong/distinct honey sweetness pairs well with the bold fruity flavours of melon, peach and apricot. Tea-like herbal character lies beneath and adds depth, while a light citrus sharpness of sweet oranges splash the malt sweetness from the palate. Touch of spice (clove). The finish dries out a bit, getting a bit crisp, with residual a residual fruit sweetness that lingers. Alcohol becomes a bit pronounced as the beer warms.
Although not traditional, this is an interesting, and very fruity, take on an unfiltered wheat beer. I could see myself relaxing and sucking back quite a few of these on a nice summer day.
Thanks to trbeer.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a fantastic level of foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of an orange smell mixed with a strong showing of wheat. Along with these are some lighter notes of a yeasty smell as well as a bit of lemon.
Taste – The taste begins with a wheat bread flavor mixed with a little bit of a drier orange flavor. The orange flavor lessens a bit as the flavor advances being replaced by some flavors of a more lemon like citrus. All the while a decent yeasty and lightly hopped grassy flavor comes to the tongue. In the end with the loss of the orange, increase in the lemon and grass and maintenance of the wheat a somewhat crisp and dry flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather fitting for the style creating a rather refreshing feel.
Overall – An alright and rather crisp brew, but really nothing that is worth going out of your way for.
