i didnt care for this one for a lot of reasons. it may have been a little past its seasonal charm, being december and all, but i thought it tasted metallic, overly bogged down by dead yeast, and concentrated orange flavoring. the pour was less cloudy than i expected after reading the label, its pure yellow, with a small but fading white head. there is a orangey lemony aroma over an extract wheat malt base, pale and boring. the flavor is a mess, citrus first, odd minerally vibes next, and leftover yeast is all i can taste at the end, sour or spoiled in some sense. maybe im making it sound worse than it really is, but to me the flavors are really off, and if this is the intended flavor profile, the brewers just need to revision this one all together. still the feel is okay, medium in body for the style, light overall. fine carbonation, but the aftertaste is offputting, especially when it warms up a little bit. i wont buy this again.
