Bottle cortesy of adneilsen (thanks Aaron) poured a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, coriander and citrus. Mouthfeel was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat,yeast, light coriander and ligt citrus with a crisp lingering yeasty finish. Smelled promising but the flavor let me down.

me least favorite of saranac brews by far. pours a hazy wheat color with a decent white head. smells sour and fruity, citrus. taste is an overly yeasty wheat beer that is overly fruity, orange and spiced to oblivion. the balance is off, and the mouthfeel is only okay. too heavy for the style and leaves a rather unpleasant dead beer type aftertaste. get this one out of the summer mixer next year please
