Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is full of oranges, little else. Taste is oranges, bready, some spices and a touch of lemons. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and pretty good beer.

Look: It pours golden and clear with a white head. Head retention is low.

Smell: It has doughy wheat aromas with coriander and lemon. There is a bit of orange and other spices in the nose as well.

Taste: It has doughy flavors that is a bit sweet. There are some coriander notes and other spices, but they are at the low level. There are also some fruity esters that has low lemon and low orange.

Feel: It has a medium light body and finishes a bit sweet.

Overall, it has a good combination of flavors that are light which is good for a summer day.

From a can. Pours a hazy golden color, some bubbles when pouring but the head doesn't linger. Light banana smell. Medium feel with prickly carbonation. Wheat, banana, and orange flavors with some spicy hops on the finish. Nice, certainly true to style.

12oz can into a Teku glass.

Look: Pours a lightly hazy (but pretty clear, all things considered) golden yellow. A large, foamy white head reduces into a thin foam ring leaving spotty, fine lacing behind.
Smell: Lots of banana and orange/peel, some bready malt, coriander/spicy yeast. On the end there is an intense sweet aroma like gumballs.
Taste: Following the nose exactly and bang on for the style. Bread/dough, tons of banana, orange peel, coriander/spicy yeast.
Feel: Thin side of medium bodied with tiny bubbles and prickly, persistent carbonation.
Overall: Banana-y, bready, zesty, spicy, sweet while all being relatively light and easy to drink way too quick. Very solid wit.

12oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours surprisingly clear, golden in color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to leave nothing behind

S- toasted wheat, banana, clove cracked pepper, spicy yeast, orange peel, coriander & doughy bread

T- doughy bread, followed by notes of clove, banana and orange. The finish gives some tangy toasted wheat with some peppery spicy yeast on the linger

M-medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish

O- solid wit that I'm glad to have added to the year round WV lineup, will make a great summer time six pack

Had this on draft at the local dive. I was pleasantly surprised how good this was. Poured very cloudy with a nice head from the tap. Smells of oranges and bread. Bread and orange taste with a bit of spice. One of the better wheat beers I've had made in the States. Good Stuff, quite sure this is only available on draft so have one if your passing through the WV area.
