Poured a 16 oz can into a nonic pint, a slightly hazy pale orange with a one inch white head. Not a whole lot going on with the nose, slight malt and citrus notes. Tasted oranges, and some hops, but not much wheat. nice carbonation, and on the dry side, which I like as I hate sneaking up on a beer. A great lawn mowing beer for sure!

Pours a slightly hazy orange/yellow with mild sediment and a white head. Smells of yeast, wheat, and light citrus. Tastes of biscuit, wheat, bread, yeast, light citrus, light hops, and some spices. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a very delicious and refreshing american wheat.

Late Check-in of this beer from Town Center Tap House, Daleville, VA. July 1, 2014. Lost in the archives... Day of the unfortunate US loss to Belgium in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

A good wheat ale. Had a lot of (probably too much) Oberon when I was in Ann Arbor last summer!
