Appearance: Hazy golden orange in color, with a moderate, dense, and persistent white head. Fine-beaded lacing leaves tidemarks on the glass walls. Carbonation is profuse, fine, and slow-rising.

Aroma: Spicy wheat aroma dominates. There are also bread notes, citrus rind, and tropical fruits.

Taste:Opens with solid wheat malt. Soon after there are some biscuit notes, and citric and grassy hops. As the taste progresses, mild metallic and herbal hops dominate the taste, with the malt providing a mildly sweet undercurrent. Finishes with a lingering, moderate metallic and herbal bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, soft, very full and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes:A very nice and drinkable example of the style. Better suited to summer then winter, but very enjoyable, nonetheless.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

This is very clean for a wheat without the big esters found in many European interpretations. The nose is herbal and citrus with more hop action than yeast. It pours crystal clear pale gold and the thick fluffy head confirms the presence of wheat, along with the rich texture. Grainy malt on the palate carries hoppy spice into the finish. Medium carbonation and body. Easy to drink.
