T: Wheat, honey and spice lead the flavors with a very mild sweetness.

F: The body is medium light and the carbonation is medium.

This beer pours a bright gold with a better than average head. The aroma features lots of lemon and orange peel, nutmeg, peppermint candy, clove, coriander and tomato. The flavor features orange peel first, almost clementine orange, then a decent dose of coriander and nutmeg, followed by lemon, and then flattening out into biscuity, rough malts, oats, and more clove. The mouthfeel is soft and full with luscious carbonation. Overall this is a nice wit with a fuller mouthfeel and a good flavor progression throughout, though I am not crazy about the finish.

Pale, golden amber, thin head of tiny bubbles, vanishing fast. Beautiful bubble streams rising slow. Wee bit of lacing.

Smells faintly of malty-dry honey-wheat.

Crisp, light with a honey- floral tinted bubble crush of hops.
Citrus, like the floral notes, is understated. The honey-wheat taste lingers.

Mellow. I find it goes quite well with a healthy bowl of cereal.

Canned on date of 05/18/17

Appearance - Pours hazy and golden orange in color with a white, near finger width head. Sub-par retention results in a mostly barren surface with a fair ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Decent lacing, with a few broken lines and some spotting.

Smell - Smells of wheat, orange, light honey, faint milkiness, and a fair amount of coriander spice.

Taste - Follows the nose; wheat, some milkiness, orange character and subtle honey. Light spice bites near the finish, leading to a sweet, slightly spicy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with low-to-moderate carbonation. Slick on the tongue with a relatively flat finish.

Overall - Barely a step up from Blue Moon, but it's passable.

I really like this. Subtle on the orange and great after taste. Very nice. I prefer it to blue moon which for me the fruity-ness is a bit much

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving a glazing of lace roaming around the glass. The smell had a nice sweet sticky orange and blended citrus rind. A light spice around the coriander helps to balance. The taste took the orange and citrus to combine with the spice to develop a nice refreshing lead into the aftertaste and leave a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent crisp sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but seemed to smooth out a light citrus rind bitterness over my tongue delicately. Overall, this one was good, Americanized, but yes, good.

Pours a cloudy yellow with nice foam and minimal lacing. Smells of citrus, to be honest the smell is very muted, I cannot get much out of it. The taste is very good, good orange notes with wheat/honey and mild carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable beer, excellent for summer months and out by the lake fishing, very nice. Wish it had a little more depth of flavor but as a whole a nice beer.
