Pours a cloudy, pale golden in my wheat beer glassware. Very thin, nearly nonexistent lace here.
Nose is crisp citrus and yeastiness, with touch of spice to round it out. Pleasant.
Tastes mild and approachable as a session beer or a beginner's craft beer, with plenty of orange citrus and a kiss of spice around the edges. And while this seems to lack the complexity and depth of a typical German hefeweizen, it's still a tasty and enjoyable wheat beer that should appeal to just about anyone.

A - poured a pale straw with light orange highlights and a one finger white head that dissipated quickly much like a sprite or other similar soda would. No lacing or residual head leaving it flat looking shortly after the pour.
S - nose is a subdued fruityness, candied banana notes followed by tons of orange dominant citrus aroma that also is a little lemony. A mellow malt wafting through after that with some slight pepper and herbs.
T - very mellow flavor profile, starts with a slight fruity yeast taste thats a little herbal with orange and banana, ends with a mellow malt flavor, slight bitterness but not substantial, and almost a lacking wateriness at the end.
M - carbonation is medium to low for the style, or at least less then what I'd prefer. This left it less crisp and a little chewy for the style.
O - this is a good solid beer, but has some areas leaving me less then impressed. After the pour the beer was very flat in appearance. Taste was great but wish it was kicked up a notch, it seems a little mellow and subdued.
