Appearance: Quite hazy light orange in color, with almost a resemblance to orange juice. The thick, cloud-top head retains rather well, an abundance of thick, unbroken lacing adorns the glass walls.
Aroma: Sweet orange rind is very prominent in the aroma, as well as a sturdy wheat malt presence.
Taste: Opens with rather prominent sweet orange rind flavors, a touch sweet; these dominate the taste from start to finish. A solid wheat malt backbone supports the orange flavors, ever present, but never dominant. Towards the close, there are some mild hops, which give the effect of bitter orange, and draw the taste to a pleasing close.
Mouth feel: Smooth, fairly full, pleasant, with a little stinging carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Rather drinkable, actually, better suited to summer than late fall, but still nice.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a twist off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
