12 fl oz bottle
poured a pale golden hazy liquid, 1 and a half finger soapy white head, poor retention, no lacing. wonderful nose composed of wheat, orange and spices, so fresh and delicate. palate was a little bit of a let down, the orange and spices are still there but kind of lost in the cardboardy taste of the wheat/oats, plus a bit sour and dry.
light bodied, prickly carbonation.
overall a refreshing perfumy brew for hot days, but the wheat and sour flavors didnt let the other components play as much as i would like to. i guess wheat isnt really my type..

Edit: i had half of the beer "pure" and the other half with an orange slice as garnish, and then even dropped it inside the glass. the slice didnt improve the flavor, so for me the slice was a non significative factor to take into account.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint: glass. Pours a nice cloudy semi-transparent straw with really no head, but limited lacing. Smells of wheat and orange. Tastes of wheat with a slight orange flavor. Beer is overcarbonated, but very drinkable, with more flavor than most mass produced beers for still having a light body. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with about a finger of fizzy head. Head dissipates rather quickly and leaves minimal lacing.

S - Wheat, coriander, citrus. A little banana.

T - Same as above, with coriander, other spices, and banana becoming stronger. Sweet.

M - Heavy but not overpowering, a little oily, but in a good coats-your-mouth kind of way. Goes down smooth with medium carbonation.

O - Always a treat and never gets old. Of witbiers I've had, it's a little better than Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat and is topped only by Bell's Oberon.
