A- Cloudy dark orange color with a small white head that dissipates into nothing.
A- Very fruity perfume like aroma.
T- Wheaty, it tastes very similar to eating shredded wheat in the morning. There is also a distinctive orange fruitiness about this brew. Very light yeastiness. There is a very tart finish.
M- Smooth medium body with a nice crisp carbonation.
D- I'll admit, I expected a Belgian style Wit. This has to be one of the more interesting American Wheats I've had. The tartness is very odd and seems out of style. If you are looking for a refreshing wheat, look elsewhere. This isn't bad, but definitely not on par with other Arcadia brews. That said I enjoyed some aspects of the flavor and the aroma.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
