A: The beer is relatively clear very light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange peels are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of orange peels and is followed by notes of wheat and hints of spices (although not of the peppery variety).
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is both easy to drink and refreshing—it makes for a good selection on a hot summer day.

Drank from a glass.

Aroma: Citrus with a little bit of spice – almost a floral scent.

Appearance: Light Amber with a bit of a haze.

Taste: Starts with a sweet fruit flavor (maybe banana and orange) with smooth start with typical characteristics of a wheat beer (orange, some spice flavors). Taste a little bit of the hops (“spice-like” and a little earthy) with again, a citrusy hint to it. The banana continues to come through and some pear comes through in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, carbonated well, almost a creamy/buttery mouthfeel.

Overall: So far, this is my favorite of the light “summer brews” I’ve tried this year. Really is a combination of a blanche and wheat beer. Would have again – especially out on the deck on a summer night. Crisp and refreshing with a nice aftertaste of banana and a little bit of pineapple.

Pours from a bottle into a pint glass. Mix a six pick up.

Pours hazy dirty blonde with some white foam, mostly burns off. Wheaty nose, some orange. Wit beer taste with some orange/coriander notes. Grains of paradise taste. Lemon too. Good mixture, not great.
