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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on May 26, 2014.
It has a milky pale yellow pour leading up to a modest white fizzy head that fades. Nice bits of sediment floating about.
The aroma does not make me think of a witbier. It is more like a fruit beer considering the main notes I get are watermelon and mango. Any toasted biscuit notes are in the distance.
Light and refreshing body.
The taste is also on the fruity side but a modest bitterness kicks in to help make this feel more like a beer.
