Rich, full bodied, full flavored. Malts come cheap and the hops balance it well. Some slight coffee notes make it in there as well. All in all I really enjoyed this beer apart from the bitter aftertaste which felt out of place.

$12 for a sixer of this locally. Hazy, cloudy look with many large chunks of particulates floating around like pieces of cheese - not appealing in the least bit. Mild, rather nondescript grainy aroma. Taste is citrusy, lacking the spice that one would generally expect from the style. Mouthfeel is on the creamier side. Overall, not bad but not great - perhaps it would benefit from the addition of some spices.

Pours a cloudy Orange with a nice head. Very smooth.....almost has a light amber taste to it. Very drinkable. Definitely worth a try.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Light fruit and wheat notes as well as some bready notes and spicy hops

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the wheat and bready malt notes and then goes into some fruitiness and spicy hop notes. Finishes with lingering wheat and some yeasty undertones

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid summer wheat ale that is super drinkable

Very nice, refreshing, drinkable wheat beer - I thoroughly enjoyed it even though wheat beers are typically not my cup of tea. Nice hazy golden color with some nice head and lingering lacing. Smells of wheat, citrus fruit and some grain. Tastes similarly, along with some caramel and nice malt backbone. Perfect balance of sweetness and that wheat aftertaste. Mild mouthfeel with good carbonation. A very refreshing, sessionable beer.

Best summer beer there is! I hope every state has something similar to drink out on the patio garnished with orange.
