3.55/5 rDev -1.4%
12 oz bottle witha BB date of 15 August 2014, served in a snifter.
Pours cloudy pale amber with a weak head.
Aroma: sweet and fruity, with obvious orange and a hint of spicing.
Flavor: citrus fruit on wheat bread; only a hint of hops; lightly sweet. Orange peel is more obvious than the coriander and other spices.
Feel: light body with adequate carbonation; semi-dry.
O: a light, fruity and refreshing wheat that pusheds the orange flavor to the fore. Enjoyed this more than expected.

3.38/5 rDev -6.1%
A - Initially very impressive pale golden/straw color when poured from the 12 oz bottle. The head amounts to about 1 finger in height before receding to a slim coating. Great, lasting carbonation, but it does not retain and there is no lacing to speak of on the glass.
S - I expected orange peel and spices. I got more of a lemony smell, along with mysterious spices. Little bit of light sweetness.
T - Edited: Dominant taste is the spice mix, which now seems overdone to me. Complimenting the spice mix is a bubblegum sweetness, which I'm not a huge fan of. Hidden somewhere in the background is an orange/lemon grassiness.
M - Drank it cold and the mouthfeel was a lot better than warm. Very light with tight carbonation, almost soda water type feel. Unfortunately there is also a bit of a lingering aftertaste that I do not care for, less prevalent at cold temps.
O -It's spring time in New England so I figured I'd give this another go. I was able to discern a couple new flavors, specifically the bubblegum and grassiness. It's drinkable, but not terribly enjoyable for me. Best consumed cold and quickly. Note: edited from last year. My score for this increased a bit.
