Appearance: Slightly hazy golden orange in color, fittingly so, with a modest off-white head, which soon collapses to a scattering of foam,with fine, glass-coating lacing, and slight, slow-rising carbonation.

Aroma: Strong notes of orange rind, neither bitter, nor sweet, similar to the aroma of a Valencia orange rind, as well as moderate caramel and wheat bread aromas.

Taste: Opens with slightly bitter orange rind, followed by prominent wheat malt, and a flush of caramel malt. Later in the taste, some mild hop bitterness plays off against the wheat, orange rind, and caramel; this brings the taste to a graceful close.

Mouth feel: Fairly full, with somewhat zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Decent and drinkable, would be very appealing in warmer weather.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice..
