Served from the bottle into a nonic glass

A- Poured a fairly hazy orange color with big fluffy white head with big bubbles that left dense chunky lace

S- Big artificial peach aroma. Very sweet, bready, and citrus notes

T- Big artificial sweet peach, wheat, and some light citrus. Very little hop character and bitterness. A little bit of strange saltiness on the finish.

M- Lighter bodied, slightly watery, low carbonation

O- Kind of misses the mark as an IPA and a witbier, more like a peach wheat beer. Still an easy to drink beer though.
