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.

Very cheap yellow color but it makes up with its wheat and citrus aroma. Taste is average for a heffe, a little to much citrus for me.

Really good weisse... Easy to drink on a hot day with good flavor and not too heavy.

Had this on draft. Poured a lovely hazy honey color with a thick, light tan head and lacing. The smell was primarily fruit. The taste was a nice combination of malt, lemon, and a hint of another fruit I couldn't quite decide on (apple or pear). There was virtually no bitterness. This beer is strongly carbonated, tangy, and refreshing. While not nearly the best Hefeweissebier I've had, it is pleasant and enjoyable.

Very nice wheat beer. A nice example of a Hefe.

Taste is lemon, orange, banana, and plenty of wheat. Really nice American version of a German Hefe. Super clean. This is a beer that I could easily do a six pack of.
