Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a mostly clear yellow color with some carbonation seen rising to fill a finger's worth of white foamy head that quickly settled to leave some messy lace.
The aroma had some clove, citrus peel, white pepper and a light orange sweetness. Subtle hints of wheat ran underneath.
The flavor somewhat settles into the sweetness of the blend of the citrus to the sweet wheat and then gently flowing into the aftertaste fairly nice.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. Wheat portion smoothed things out appropriately. ABV felt as projected.
Overall, as an American Pale Wheat ale, it works and almost bringing some sort of Americanized witbier traits, somewhat sweetly. I'd give this one another shot to have again.

Pours a light, clear yellowish body with one-finger head that dies slow and leaves lace. A light, airy aroma of some spices and clove with hint of citric notes. Smooth, light-bodied, I like how the pepper/clove spiciness comes through for an easy to drink beer. Minor citric notes like lemon/orange come through as well, although there is a weird juiciness in this beer as well as it gets a little watery. An alright witbier but not too much complexity but a good beer to try.
