Served in a pint glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
A - Very nice golden amber with a pretty fluffy head that stayed well and left good lacing.
S - Candied orange and wheat. Not much else.
T - Very citric with a good bit of sweetness. Not bad, but tastes slightly artificial. Another reviewer mentioned Fruity pebbles; I understand what their talking about with its almost candy-like sweetness. Finishes clean, no aftertaste.
M - Light but not watery, with a decent bit of carbonation.
D - Very drinkable. Goes down easy and has modest ABV. Easily sessionable if you like sweeter wheat beers.
Overall - Kind of enigmatic. It's certainly not bad, but the flavors don't come off as very natural. My cousin loved it when he had it on draft, and he continues to like the bottled version. I'll definitely drink it, but I probably would not buy it at all if my cousin wasn't a fan of it.
