look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

pours a straw orange, 2 fingers of white head, nice lacing very cloudy

Smell is tons of wheat, orange and lemon zest, straw, almost a little Berliner tartness in the nose. It smells like goin outside on a crisp summer morning, which is what they were going fore and they nailed it!

Taste is sweet malt, wheat, orange, lemon, honey covered biscuits, slight hop bitterness

Mouthfeel is actually pretty full from the wheat, but at the same time it is extremely light and refreshing

A great wheat beer that I drink every year, get atleast a couple 6ers!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance; hazy straw, with mild evident carbonation and a nice amount of white head that retains well for a wheat beer.

smell; not too complex but definitely something there, a strong, wheat aroma, with a hint of malt and alcohol.

taste; reminds me of a wheat beer meets lager, the wheat flavor is strong but a yeasty, bready flavor rides right along with it, tiniest bit of malt in there as well.

mouthfeel; medium light, but pretty full bodied for a wheat beer. slightly creamy.

overall; in terms of wheat beers, this is a very solid choice.
