Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a hazy, medium golden amber with a two finger white head with great retention and solid lacing. Aroma of wheat malt, citrus hops, orange and light stone fruit. Flavor is wheat malt, citrus hops, grapefruit, orange and hints of stone fruit. Citrus rind finish with nice bitterness. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess and sharp carbonation. This is hands down the most interesting wheat ale I've ever had. The brewery is pushing the style envelope with some serious Citra hopping, but it tastes great, like a wheat based well hopped pale ale. One of those beers that makes me wonder why no one has done this before. The citrus from the hops is fruity and great and the bitterness is just right. This is a fine ale that I wish was available here in the Northwest.

Nice orange pour yielding a fizzy head. You can hear the carbonation. The beer is a bit opaque but not juice hazy. The label does not lie - smells and tastes like slightly carbonated orange juice. The wheat provides a lightness to the mouthfuleel and makes this one extremely drinkable. This is a great one for the style. Enjoyed the simple and elegant can label.

Hazy yellow pour with orange accents, white head and blobs of lacing. Smells of super fresh citrus hops, lighter peach and wheat. More grassy in taste, otherwise the same. Feel is wheaty and hoppy, juicy in a thinner way. This is an ipa in a wheat disguise but it is delicious, sign me up for a couple cans of these in the early summer

Pours a Very pale hazy yellow that has some transparency. Spice and flower blossoms in the aroma. Some spice and herbal hoppiness in the taste.

Lacking depth in the taste and mouthfeel. Not thin or without taste but one dimensional.

Overrated. Gumball Head puts this beer to shame.

Can. Drank from the can so no comment on appearance.

This drinks like an ipa. Hops seem to be a lot of citra. How is this a wheat ale? So juicy and fruity. Drinks incredibly easy. Orange, orange peel, and orange citrus for days. Soft. Has some hops showing, but not bitter. This was great.

L: 16 oz. can poured into a weizen glass. A hazy yellow with a 3 finger white head. Great retention and lacing.
S: Orange and citrus are present
T: Grapefruit pith
F: Heavier than expected
O: Good, but not really my thing. I’m unsure how I feel about the style and strongly prefer German Hefeweizens so I’m probably rating this too low.

S- smells of orange juice, pith, grapefruit zest, mangoes, melon and a hint of toasted wheat

16 oz can into a curved pint glass.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with 3 fingers of soapy white head. The head leaves some clingy cobweb lacing. Good retention.

Aroma brings strong notes of orange, with a bit of mango and wheat.

Taste follows the nose: Fresh oranges, mango, peach, with a little grapefruit and wheat on the finish.

Feel is medium bodied with lower carbonation. Very soft and creamy.

Overall, a very good wheat beer. It's basically a straight up pale ale, but the wheat does add a bit of body and flavor on the finish.
