look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

appearance... hazy, orangey amber

smell - fruit, 2.5 can't distinguish much else... c'mon huh...

taste - light, watery - fizzy upfront... 3

i think River horse can do better... maybe it's the Delaware River... or maybe it's just new jersey... step it up .

Poured into a pint glass. Murky brown/orange in color -- looks tasty! Good, big head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind nice lacing.

Smell is big in the yeast and citrus. Total orange.

Taste is mega-fruity. Apple, orange and banana come through and make the beer a juice-like endeavor. Overall, an interesting beer. A bit too sweet more my tastes, but a nice flavor profile here.

Watch out for particles!

As one who has had many Hefeweizens, this isn't bad.
It carries many of the common characteristics in the German wheat style.

Poured into a beer mug, had about 2 1/2 fingers head. Average lacing.

Very fruity, orange, apple, maybe slight clove.
I read elsewhere that ABV is 5.5% which is moderately noticeable.
High carbonation and adequate mouthfeel.

Again, it's not bad, it came in the River Horse variety pack, I'd recommend it to Hefeweizen fans but I'm a more hoppy guy so it wasn't one I'd run back to.
