Poured it too rapidly. I'm looking at a third of the glass of foam. Waiting for the fluffy white head to settle before draining the can. A soft hazy yellow color advertises the beer.
Snappy coriander and ripe orange peel/flesh. Brittle wheat malts are aromatic, but give the esters and spices avenues to express themselves. Light lemon, wheatgrass, and egginess. Nice whiffs.
A little grainier and brined, but still coming off of that good nose. More coriander and clove and hints of star anise, than orange peel and wheat that survives. Hints of lemon-lime soda. Strangely, it has that anise bump to it that makes for another imperfection, but undoubtedly unique. Citrusy hop with some flowery bitterness. Good stuff.
Drinks like Easy Street. Slight alcohol accent that caroms off of textural carbonation to diminish the body.
Good. Ranges from okay to excellent, depending on format (had a great version, in bottle, earlier this year). Too much inconsistency.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
Deep light orange with hints of lemon yellow. Solidly opaque, with some degree and sight of carbonation inside. Head is fluffy and makes three fingers tall with an off white appearance. Fairly decent staying power as it falls slowly.
A real nice smell of orange but a bit sweet and artificial slightly. Spritzy clove slightly, but lots of bubblegum and penny candy smells.
Palate comes a little dissapointing. Very watery brew, with little malt depth at all. Not much Belgian character to this amongst a wet and orange tang sugary body. Kool aid like finish with lots of sweet character. Sort of flattened soda character also.
Overall it comes off kind of weak and really there's no wheat depth to this at all. Drinks like sweet tang kool aid fruit punch orange more than anything.
