A: A clear yellow orange color, with almost no head at all at the top, and barely any lacing as well.

S: The citrus and wheat are present up front but nothing very potent, nice hop note as well on the tail end.

T: Nice mixture of wheat and citrus, hops are present, almost just like the nose.

M: Light - Medium bodied and a good amount of carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer, but I would be fine with not having another for a while.

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.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Weizen glass. Body is clear golden-yellow with a 2-finger whitish head. Large bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass, painting a nice picture as the head settles slowly, leaving behind some decent rings of lacing.

S: Not a strong nose - some wheat, bready malt and a touch of citrusy (I'm getting orange peel) hops.

T: Some sweet malt undertones (a tad bit fruity), then it finishes up with a combination of wheat twanginess and lemony bitterness. Also a touch of grassy hops.

M: Light in heft, active carbonation provides a sharp experience.

O: Solid stuff - a good summer drinker.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a small fruit and a small malt balance. In the taste, dry earth, yet a nice sweetness with just a touch of yeast. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry yeast and note of fruit in the aftertaste. Kind of fruity, but still nice and refreshing.
