Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Hazy pale gold, with a thin white head and fairly low levels of visible carbonation.

S: Low aroma overall - a bit grainy, husky wheat, mild fruity sweetness and a touch of tartness. Not much else.

T: Bright mandarin oranges and tangerines, wheat with less husk character than the smell suggested. Mildly sour - more just a light fruity tartness, but still mild. Unfortunately, the tart, dry, and orange characters combine to give the impression of Bayer's children's aspirin. A moderate lactic tartness with orange flavors last into the hang.

M: Light body, average carbonation sensation, low alcohol presence.

O: Far from the best so-called Florida Weisse, but nicely drinkable. The orange flavors were not unpleasant but had an artificial undertone I could have done without. Worth trying, but not anything outstanding.

I really enjoyed this one. Had it on tap at the brewery and found myself wishing that i could get a growler or some cans of it. Tart and refreshing with plenty of tangerine in the smell and taste. I would drink this any day, especially while vacationiing in Florida. Delicious.
