Had this on 2017-05-22 in Columbia, PA from a 12oz bottle

A - Lightly-hazy gold with a 1/2-finger white head and light lace.

S - Quite bready, with some grassy/herbal spice and also floral. Smells somewhat like a Czech Pils

T - LIghtly-toasted wheat bread topped with a thin film of orange marmalade and corriander. Light bitterness provides a nice balance in the finish.

M - LIght body and medium carbonation.

O - Easy-drinking, refreshing summer ale. Uncomplicated but satisfying and kudos for the lowish ABV.

Very good beer, one of my personal favorites. It is an unfilterd wheat ale, so be sure to tilt the bottle over and give it a good whirl to stir it up before enjoying. Has a good orange zest, finished by a nice tang. I'll keep this as my go-to.

I like it. I'm not a snob, I just like things that taste good. This is a nice refreshing summer bbq sort of ale. Orange and coriander are pretty apparent.

Very light, pretty watery, but definitely a good enough beer for summer. Pours a foggy orange color. Not much aroma. Enough citrus flavor to give it that crisp, refreshing taste.
