Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of citrus and spices. The taste follows the aroma. Has a nice crisp flavor.

Poured from a can...yummy nose, lemon was most distinct for me. Lemon also carried over onto the palate. While it tastes like a pretty standard wheat, there is a creaminess to the mouth feel that makes this pretty interesting. I may not seek out an entire six pack of this, but I definitely wouldn't turn it down on a hot summer's day!

Retired?? I just picked up a 6 pack last week in Chicago! Whatever...

Served a 12oz can into a glass. A HUGE white, overwhelming head sits atop a golden yellow body (and yes, I poured it correctly). Had to wait a minute or two for the head to dissipate. Smell is dusty, dank, and wet. Taste is vegetal and earthy yeast. Flavors are thin, nothing pronounced; kinda like sweet, carbonated vegetable water. Mouthfeel is super frothy! Possibly over-carbonated?? Overall, maybe it's better that Atlas is retiring Farmhouse wheat. Not a great introduction to this local brewery. Feeling kinda bummed about this one :/

Tasted in a Teku glass from a twelve ounce can on July 20, 2015. Listed here as 5.7%, my can says 5.4%. Look is cloudy and gold in color. Smells like a typical farmhouse ale. Complex tastes of banana, citrus, bubble gum, pear, and spices. Feel is dry but refreshing nonetheless.

Hazy golden yellow body, profuse with tight streams of bubbles that create a big, course white head that leave tendrils of lace. The nose contains a spritz of orange and lemon, white pepper, yeast, touch of cat pee. Flavor is a tad more mellow but still powerful and tasty and refreshing, notably with less spice and more breadiness. Medium body, good carbonation, creamy head (while it lasts).
Tasty, balanced, flavorful, all around a great beer. I'd expect this to be a true Belgian. It'd be a shame if it actually was retired.

L-poured from can into chalice, a lot of suds at first. Large, irregular bubbles rather than the finer, champagne bubbles I'd prefer. Suds dissipated pretty quickly with lively carbonation continuing from the bottom of the glass. Hazy, golden color nearing white near the edge of the glass as you might expect from a beer labeled as a wheat.

S-bubblegum and citrus are the big takeaways here. There might a bit of spice and pepper but I think I'm getting that more because I expect it with this style.

T-a little honey sweet for me with some of the citrus but not enough to really save it. Did not live up to the smells it put off. Some spiciness coming through late.

F-again, a little sweet/thick for this style. I expected it to be a little drier and/or the carbonation to clear it out a bit.

O-I'll try it again to see if I'm wrong or got a strange batch. Aroma wasn't necessarily "complete" but I very much liked what was there. The beer didn't live up to it anywhere else. Not a bad beer but this is a style that I'm pretty finicky about. Would try others from Atlas to see what they're about.
