650ml bottle pours a light golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles to a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light orange and sweet malts with some mild citrusy hops. Taste is orange zest with some malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. A decent wheat ale, but a slight disappointment from this brewery.

220z bottle served in a snifter.

A - Pours golden yellow in color with a small white head that quickly reduces to a ring. Virtually no lacing left behind, excepting a few spots.

S - A pleasant aroma with hints of orange blossoms and honey but mainly of a light, bready malt and faint wheat.

T - Nice mix of malt and wheat for a foundation, with a subtle contribution from the honey and orange. In perspective, I've had many APAs and IPAs with more 'orange' flavor (from hops alone). Personally, I didn't miss the clove or banana one might expect in a beer like this.

M - Low but adequate carbonation; a bit crisp; Fairly clean feel; light body but not particularly watery.

Overall: a fine lighter (but not "Light") beer for hot summer days. Refreshing. Should work well with mild foods such as most seafood, but a little too mild for some spicy hummus I had with it.

P: pours a pale, yellow with a slight orange tint with a very white 2 fingers of head that leaves almost no lacing.

Smell: strait up oranges wheat and hops.

Taste follows the nose, lots of orange citrus, a wheaty breadiness follows and end with some clean hops. not bad but not amazing.

M: mouthfeel was really light

O: i was kind of let down by this beer, its lacked any serious defining character.
