A- Somewhat cloudy orange body with tons of floaters in it. Fluffy white head that leaves a ton a lacing all over.

S- Lots of fruity, tropical hop aroma, very yeasty, almost slightly sour like a lager yeast, grainy wheat.

T- Lots of wheat from beginning to end. Very nice hop presence that adds the tropical fruit flavors.

M- A little fuller body than I expected from a wheat beer. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, I guess the wheat adds some body.

O- Very good for the style. Great hop selection, perfect beer for a can.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of lemons and wheat, with a good dose of coriander thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of tropical and citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges, as well as some orange and wheat notes. There is also a low amount of bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very refreshing, easy to drink wheat ale.

From tasting notes. Appearance: cloudy, straw color, 2” fluffy, rocky, persistent head. Smell: Bread, yeast and a little sweet malt. Taste: This is an American style wheat ale with no banana or clove lurking around. It starts with sweet, fresh bread flavors and then the hops wrestle the flavors to a dry finish with just the right amound of lingering hop bitter accent. Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium high carbonation, medium full body.
