A clear golden orange color with a nice off-white head. The aroma was pretty mild with a little floral hops. Flavor was more bitter than I expected. This floral bitterness made the wheat and any citrus flavor difficult to pick up. The bitterness did finish fairly clean.

(On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room) Pours a very nice pale golden, sun-lit color; very nice head and good lacing. Nice crisp and clean, semi-citrusy, scent; slight fizzy in the nose. Excellent wheat flavor with a nice straw-like tone and an excellent under-stated citrusness. Goes down very well, an excellent high ABV wheat beer without any alcohol heat.

Obtained this growler from a very nice man named sean.

A-pours a hazy golden orange color, with nice 2 finger think creamy head

S-has nice floral notes with a good mix of hoppy smell

T-hits the palate nice and smooth... the orange peel flavor comes out nicely and tastes very good. Then ending is where the hoppy flavor come in.

M-light bodied with good carbonation

D-this is a very nice beer. Love the smell and taste while in your mouth... wish there wasn't as strong of a hoppieness as you swallow... felt this beer got alittle better as it hit room temperature. Will get this again for sure!
