We had a keg of this Wheat beer at our Halloween party.
Poured a nice Golden/Amber color with slight cloudyness and a plenty of thick creamy head that laced well down the side of the glass.

Smelled of slightly sour wheats and orange citrus hints.

Tasted a slight wheaty sourness, but was overpowered by the citrus notes, mostly orange, with just a hint of hoppiness at the end.

The moutfeel was light and slick, with a touch of creaminess.

Drinkablility is pretty good on this, not a great beer by any stretch, but easy enough to drink that it made a nice session beer. Plus would make a good crossover beer, for the macro drinkers.
