From a 12oz can.

Pours a hazy straw color, white fluffy head, fades at a decent rate and leaves some patchy lacing on the glass.

Smell has mostly a lemon zest aroma from the citrus, dash of coriander and even a bit of orange.

Taste is surprisingly tame and watery, from the nose I thought the flavor would be stronger, the primary flavor is the citrusy zest, assertive carbonation borders on fizzy, taste fades away very quickly, yeasty aftertaste, the lack of body makes this more disappointing than what it could have been.

As others have said, probably a good stepping stone but I'd sooner reach for a superior Allagash White.

I bought a can of this and drank it at 7venth sun brewery. Poured into a snifter. Pale,cloudy yellow color,decent white heading left some globbage around the glass. A lot of action in the glass.

Nose is mostly of corriander, a touching of spicey hops and a bit zesty.

Taste is just not meshing for me. Crisp wheat malts at first, a little touch of corriander and a kind of zestly orange finish. Traces of black pepper are left lingering.

Light bodied,decent carbonation and leaves slight buttery slickness.

This beer really didn't do it for me. Seemed to be a little dull in the flavor department.

A: nice straw yellow color that is ok with the style, but head is formed fast and big but dissipates somehow fast not leaving a lot of traces behind sticked to the glass, carbonation is also not as reach as it should be with the consequences of not forming a permanent layer on top of the beer.

S: The aroma is wheat rich and with some herbs inside not too strong or penetrate but still present.

T: the flavor of these beer is also very intense wheat with some spiciness inside and with orange peels that make it a balanced one.

M: the ending is good, it endures in the back of the mouth with strong bitterness represented or formed by the herbs present in this beer,
