From tap into a pint-sized mason jar. Hazy, golden with some light amber hues. Less than 1/2 finger of a full head; little lacing.
The aroma is wheat-forward with lemon/citrus tones. There is a sweetness as well, like roasted fruit or a cobbler fresh from the oven.
The taste follows the smell accordingly. A nice, full-bodied wheat flavor with sweet floral and citrus notes. Has more flavor than many comparable wheat/wit beers. The hops are surprising pronounced but by no means strong or overwhelming.
Mouthfeel is substantial. Very different than the light crispness of most witbiers. Much more like an amber or dark, deeper unfiltered ale.
I like this beer. I much prefer this as a summer beer than the lighter, crisper stuff with less body. A beer-drinker's summer brew? Something like that. Recommended.

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.
