The others have described the characteristics of this beer pretty thoroughly. It has a decent, but short-lived head, balanced carbonation and pleasant cloudiness, but the elephant in the room is the ovewhelming scent and flavor of artificial peach, identical to that of those soft, gummy candies. That flavor is so dominant and such a peculiar choice for an ale, that it is grounds for rejection.

Strong unique grapefruit like smell and taste. A lot of carbonation. Not smooth. Otherwise great flavor and aroma. No real great head. Thin layer of foam that doesn't retain on the glass. If the mouthfeel was smoother and slightly more round, it'd be a 4 to 5

White gold color from the cloudiness. Good starting head provides extensive streaky lace.

There's the wheat and then there's a surprising floral hop nose. I also detect a sweetness that is reminiscent of candies peaches.

Sweet brew but not cloy. There's a bit of bitter dry in the swallow, yet the aftertaste is like the aforementioned peaches. Not as much wheat in the taste as fans of style might like, but the flavor profile is exceedingly complex. The body is full and the carbonation elevated.
