Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a super hazy orange color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades quickly at first, but then very slowly, with it leaving a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and a nice foamy film on the top of the brew.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a yeasty and orange citrus peel smell. Along with these aromas comes smells of lemon and grass as well as a little bit of a herbal smell.

Taste- The taste begins a good showing of an orange and tangerine flavor along with some sour grapefruit tastes. Along with these flavors comes notes of a more bready taste with lots of yeast mixed within. As the taste advances, the brew sours up a bit more with some lemon and more grapefruit coming to the tongue. Along with these flavors comes some grass and herb, leaving a oddly sweet and bitter citrus and hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The creamy body is nice of the yeasty and wheat tastes, in light of all the sweet and bitter citrus, giving more dimension to the brew, all while, the lower carbonation accentuates the thicker and chewier feel nicely.

Overall – A decent brew overall with a nice blend of sweet and sour citrus as well as just enough grass and bread to balance it out.

On tap at Old Chicago in Olathe, Kansas. On draft poured hazy yellowish orange color with a white head. The aroma is orange...the flavor is orange possibly some wheat on the end of this one but the orange is dominant. Overall it is a flavorful and refreshing wheat.
