Appearance- Don't let the name fool you this beer pretty cloudy but in a good way. It has nice cloudy hay yellow color to it. The head was virtually nonexistent but there was a little lace.

Smell- Definitely sweet other than that it is mildly citrus like.

Taste- It had a strong wheat malt taste, a little bit of sugar, citrus and some spice. I thought the aftertaste was a little bitterer than it should have been.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and easy to drink.

Drinkability- Average and refreshing.

This is a slightly hazy, pale golden colored beer with a small white head.
The aroma is nothing much to speak of, other than a bit of yeast.
Its flavor begins as a normal wheat beer, then follows with some spice near the finish. There is also a slight citrus presence.
Mouthfeel is light in body and a bit under carbonated.

This is a decent beer, but nothing about it stands out as special to me.

Massachusetts

3.03/5  rDev -10.9%

Appearance: minimal head, clear, amber in color

Smell: orange, cinnamon, clove, and wheat

Taste: orange, lemon, light coriander, clove, and wheat

Mouthfeel: slightly sweet, light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: This is an ok witbier that has a touch too much spicing. Fairly undistinguishable, I will pass on this in the future.

3.05/5  rDev -10.3%

A: A pale tangerine color is moderately hazy, with a strong waverly mist of micro-bubbles rising within. The capping is strong, 2 fingers, sea-shell white in color, with a frumpy, stryofoam like texture. The lacing is equally strong sticking well to the glass leaving a chunky, bready ring band about.

S: Pale oranges, wheat and a pretty good musky nature. Fairly simple, could use some sharpness as well coriander to spice things up.

T: sharp nature, pale oranges and wheat. No frills flavor that lacked a good spiciness (again coriander and a lemony touch would have been nice). Musky hops, some bitterness come on the close. Dry wheat base, mundane flavor and spicing.

M: Upfront crispness, very tight and well suited per style, but quickly turns to a washy feel after a few seconds. Bubbly, washy that loses credibility on the hold.

O: Besides a good visual nature the beer lacks in comparison to staple styles like hoegaarden. Lacks a good spicy nature, bite, with a fairly sloppy wheat base that comes off as ordinary as the spicing. Partly sunny is partly dull and overcast.

Wisconsin

3.1/5  rDev -8.8%

Appearance - Medium light yellow. Cloudy, nearly opaque. Short creamy white head with some persistence.

Smell - Sweet and grainy. Banana and a little spice and lemon.

Taste - Sweet grain. Artificial banana with a lemony finish. Some spice, especially in the aftertaste - I'll go with cloves. Quite watery.

Mouthfeel - Light.

Overall - Flavor didn't live up to the aroma's promise.

3.13/5  rDev -7.9%

L: Pouts an orange-yellow color with a tall white colored head that fades slowly and laces the glass nicely on the way down.
S: Smells of sweet wheat aromas, orange and lemon scents followed by coriander and maybe some other spices in there as well.
T: Tastes of sweet toasted wheat, some other sweet malts, sweet orange, tangy lemon, and then a nice coriander finish. Pretty decent mix of flavors.
M: Smooth, light-medium bodied, maybe some more carbonation would be good, but pretty refreshing nonetheless.
D: Overall a decent mix of flavors and feel, nice job on this.
