Another beer that escaped my reviews, probably cause I'm not a huge fan of wheat based beers, but this was pretty decent, esp after working all day in the yard and super hot.

Pours a decent but smaller fizzy head that hits 1/2 finger and disappears pretty quickly, no lacing either, surprisingly crystal clear honey golden yellow color.

NOse brings nice spices at first, not over powering either, little coriander clove like spices, a little orange zest, hint of creamy wheat, mild toasty note, mild floral spices note, fair orange, but overall on the light side.

Taste starts with more mild creamy wheat, a little toasty but not much, into orange juice, a bitter rind and pulp like orange. Fair spices, a bit more than I expected from the aroma, coriander, floral spices, orange zest, etc. mild fruity esters, and a little peppery note. Finish is dry, very dry, little creamy too, fair bitterness kicking in mostly the bitter orange peel, and a little bit of the coriander lingering.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, a little creamy, nice carb.

Overall not bad, again not a huge fan of wheat based beers, hefes, wits, etc, but this is pretty decent, nice spices that get perhaps a bit too much on the flavor but still nice, great orange and zest, nit bitterness on the finish with dry finish, decent creamy wheat, nice on a hot summer day.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a chilled pint glass..

A - a bright straw like orange color, nice foamy one inch head...cannot see through this beer. Head is depleting kind of quick, at about a half inch after 30 seconds.

S - Defenetly in the apple,oranges,coriander.... pear type realm. smells kind of sweet. almost a sugary sweetness.

T - very very slight hop presence...has a nice mellow easy drinking flavor....getting that apple and pear and orange..a very very slight hop presence juuuust enough to tickle the palate...So many characteristics of a saison happening here. this a saison hahah...?

Feel - Well carbonated, real drinkable

Overall, A pretty solid beer. generally not a big fan of this style but this wasn't bad....if i went out and someone had this on tap i may get it...this is a nice summer beer.
