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

hazy straw, small head that poofs. nose; yeast, fresh orange slices and light wheat grain. taste; light hop and clove spiciness, followed by the "summer wheat" core of bready yeasts/grains and mild sweet citrus fruit. like most wheats, the drink builds towards the typical yeast funk after a serving or so. only average in my opinion.
