Poured a pale straw color that was milky with a big impressive head. Head dissipated quickly. Definitely smelled of orange and wheat. Tasted similar to the smell with a nice dry finish. Beer was nicely balanced. This is a nice refreshing beer that would be a nice summer refresher.

Purchased single bottle at Martignetti's

Appearance = Pale, foggy whitish yellow with a huge 1.5 inch head that lasts awhile.

Smell = Strong malty alchol like scent. Very reminiscent of other Belgian ales. A bit of sweet floral aromas come through.

Taste = Bubble gum like flavor with the perfect amount sweetness. Not a bad wheat beer at all.

Overall = Pretty darn good wheat beer. Recommended for those that enjyo this style.
