Poured into a Spiegelau American Wheat glass. Canned 10/02/15. I must have done something right in a former life because I can't believe I live so close to a brewery that has some of the best brews in America. This one is right up there with the Hotter than Helles and Jai Lai IPA as top examples of their styles. The taste, color, and feel are excellent, the hint of orange mixed with coriander is a cool Florida twist on this classic style.

Pale and hazy in color. The beer has a nice nose of orange and coriander. A fantastic drink by the pool or outside. Cigar City did fantastic job with this beer.

appearance almost clear and is golden colored with full first segment finger head. Has that clean unmalted wheat smell. smells of fresh orange peel too.

taste on the tip of the tongue is the corianderish taste, lots of carbonation happening too. orange coming through as well. Like a fresh thick skinned orange fresh from harvest. any hops that are in this brew I cannot recognize. Drinkability is over the top. quaffing can happen with this brew. mouthfeel is lots of carbonation but not too much to avert gulping. very light mouthfeel.

I would definitely enjoy this beer again and would push this on lighter beer drinkers who are searching for blue moon/shocktop type beers. It's a beer that pushes those two beers out of the water for sure. Does this style beer much justice.
