Thus was gifted to me, and I usually like wheat beers, but this is not worth buying. It looks dark orange in the glass, but the good flavors are lacking.

Pours a straw color with a tint of golden, hazy, little head and thin lacing that soon disappears. Aroma is citrus orange like and slightly tart. Although generally sweet in taste, there is a hoppy and spicy mouthfeel and finish. The sweet side comes out as the drink warms. There is a balance of wheat and malt flavor, also, citrus fruits like orange peel and grapefruit. Soft carbonation, light mouthfeel. A tasty and easy drinker.

12 oz can poured into a weizen glass. Deep gold, almost amber, color and hazy. Tall, fluffy white head. Citrus fruit aroma with a little clove and bubble gum mixed in. Faint banana. Big fruity flavor but again more towards the citrus side than banana. Slight spice but nothing overwhelming. Refreshing despite being medium bodied. Carbonation is spot on.

This might be the only weissbier I've had from a can but it is damn good. Really impressed by this and wish Sly Fox made it year round instead of a seasonal.
