look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Orange hued cloudy amber pour, 1/2 finger of soapy white head, spotty lacing in the glassware.

Aroma is bright and hop forward, orange overtones are most apparent,malt is in the basement on this one.

The sample I had at the brewery struck me as a touch sharp and acidic, however the 1 liter swing top growler I consumed 2 weeks later seemed to have a great deal more balance and depth to it. The flavors are bold and hoppy, again taking on the orange peel tones and a slightly piney character as well. Really nicely balanced and the flavor/aroma improved upon warming. Not so much the bubble gum, banana, or clove character in the taste that is often associated with wheat beers, Rang Duce is a hop bomb all the way with a hefty amount of IBUs without sending the palate into shock.

Mouthfeel on the lighter side of medium, very crisp and dry.

Another solid effort from Matty O, who has a true understanding of how hoppy beers should look, smell and taste. Excellent hoppy wheat that I look forward to in the Fiddlehead rotation. Highly recommended.
