On-tap at Bernie's Taproom in Waukesha, WI. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a slight white head. Slight citrus aroma. The texture is smooth, light and tasty. Perfect in every way and very easy to see why it is considered so good. Too bad they don't make this one year-round.

This is a great summer ale. Has a nice hazy yellowish-golden color. You can taste the citrus flavors. If you want a real treat, put a slice of orange in your beer. Great light beer for people who don't want something too heavy.

Overall it is my favorite summer beer.

Yellow golden color with a nice citrus aroma. Strong scent of orange and lemon. Flavor brings out a feel of summer with its hints of orange and citrus. Sediments linger but do not hinder the flavors of the beer. Very good seasonal beer (especially for summer)

It's a crisp beer that's great for the summer time. Has a slight sweetness that makes it very appealing for warmer weather. The mouth feel is light and easy to drink.
Served with an orange which added some complexity allowing the true wheat flavors to come out.
Has a pale yellow straw color, with slight cloudyness from sediments.

A great summer beer. Tastes like summer - light and refreshing to drink when it's hot outside. Yeasty with citrus after notes. Cloudy yellow body with a mildly hoppy aroma. The beer maintains a crisp and refreshing taste. Frothy white head holds the body of the beer.
