look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Picked up a bottle on recent trip to Santa Rosa at the Bottle Barn.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a half inch thick white head which fades rapidly to the rim leaving faint lace.

N: Bready yeast, spices, orangy citrus, wheat grains and fruity esters.

T: Follows nose with wheat malt, yeast, corriander, faint pepper, banana and clove, oranges,

M: Light body and carbonation. Fairly well balanced.

O: Refreshing and easy to drink. Worth a try for the price.

Poured a finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is really nice: Valencia orange, lemon, grapefruit and some malt.
The taste is moderate orange sweet with a touch of lemon bitterness at the end.
The texture is soft with moderate carbonation.
Drinkable, the flavor is nice if shallow.
