Appearance - Pours a nice golden straw color with an inch and a half thick, fluffy white head that lingers for about 2 minutes. Has nice lacing.

Smell - Citrus, orange peels, and wheat. A pretty tangy aroma but not complicated.

Taste - I like this a lot, although the alcohol seems weak. Bitter with citrus, maybe some lemon or orange zest, and a faint wheat flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate carbonation. Starts to fizz up if you let it linger on the tongue.

Overall - This is a very good beer.. It's very refreshing and would be great on a summer day.
