4.3/5 rDev +30.3%
A: this beer pours a dark orange with a hint of haze. Start as a 2 finger foamy white head that dissipates into a thin layer of foamy white bubbles.
S: The smell is of mainly floral hops and grassy notes. Also has hints of coriander and honey to sweeten the finish.
T: Taste consists of coriander, grassy notes, and a little bit of citrus spice, kind of like an orange tang. Sweetness of the honey follows on the back end. Taste is like a light Saison!
M: Moderate carbonation is present at first, but then is hidden by the cloudy citric presence. A little lacing is there depending on what type of glass you choose.
O: All in all a very good beer for a nice breezy, summer day. Very drinkable with a lot of earthy flavor. One of Magic Hats better brews and if you love Saisons, you'll enjoy this beer!

3.13/5 rDev -5.2%
A- Hazy light orange with a fluffy off white head. Head fades quickly to a ring but leaves little lace on the glass.
S- Sweet fruit, grapes and elderberries and the dominate notes.
T- Follows the nose, elderberries dominate the taste with a few notes form the wheat to round this out. Not very complex but a nice refreshment on a hot summer day. The finish is mostly sweet and lingering without any counterpoint to the berry taste.
M- Medium in body and with decent carbonation.
O- I would want a lot of these but it was a nice diversion on a hot day. No real character of a hefeweizen in this but it was still a pleasant beer to drink. The 5.5% ABV is low enough to make it a session beer but it is a little sweet for me to want do so.
