12 oz bottle

Pours a clear, light brownish orange with an almost white head that is not quite as steady as i like

Smell is bready sweet with a hint of citrus

Taste is a very good, wheat bread that isn't too much.

Mouthfeel is a little thin, but makes it very drinkable. Slightly dry finish that leaves me wanting more.
