Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 9 oz glass. Pours a cloudy orange straw with a froffy head, but it dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Smells of wheat and spices, very clean and nice. Tastes of wheat with orange flavors, very nice. This light bodied beer is very refreshing and has perfect carbonation. Overall a very good beer.

Pilsner glass on tap. Hazy pale golden color. Small head with no lacing. Flowery and sweet nose. Sweet and fruit flavor. Flower notes. Almost slightly buttery. Thick and fizzy on the palate with a long cloying finish. Overall a little too sweet for me.
