look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a light yellow color with a thick frothy head. The aroma is of wheat backbone with hints of oragne. The taste has a sweet malt backbone with hints of orange and a big corriander taste. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated. The drinkability is good, its a nice easy drink with some nice flavors.

An aggressive pour delivers a moderately hazy dark yellow to straw colored brew with a finger of head. There is no real detectable carbonation in there. The aroma is a nice sweet and spicy orange with a more mild creamy wheat malt beneath it; the coriander spicy citrus is more dominant in this one. The aroma is nice, but is just doesn't come through as strong as I would like to see. The flavor is dominated by a coriander spiceyness and orange character. Behind this is a fairly mild wheat malt. This one is balanced well, but this results in an all around mild quality to the brew due to the subdued nature of the flavor. Mouthfeel is moderate with a light to moderate carbonation; the body is a strength of this brew. This one has all the flavors and aromas I want for the style, just not in the quantities. Mouthfeel is good as well. I won't have much issue polishing off the growler before bed, so it can't be half bad now can it?

Arrived at my table at Liberty Steakhouse in MB SC with minimal head no lacing pale orange yellow and an orange wedge. My opinion fruit + beer = sin so the orange came out. The beer had a citrus smell of oranges and wheat. The tase was similar to smell with wheat and oranges very sweet with a bit of spice. Mouthfeel was was light which corresponds to the style. This is a very drinkable beer if you like Blue Moon you will like this.

Had on-tap at Liberty Steakhouse in Myrtle Beach
A: Pours a pale yellow with floaties. The floaties could be from the slice of orange that came in the glass. No head with no retention and no lace. Pretty bland looking.
S: Smell is very wheaty. It's a mixture of buttermilk biscuits and Wonderbread.
T: Buttered biscuits with hints of orange and lemon. Believe it or not this mixture actually works. Not bad tasting overall and good for a style I usually don't like.
M: Light...Very thin bodied, but not so much so that it's watery.
D: Drinkability is good. Like a mentioned before. This is a style I usually do not like but I found it very drinkable.
Overall I consider this above average for the style, but below average as an overall beer. It's worth a try.

I had this beer on tap at the Liberty Taproom in Columbia, SC. It was served in a pint glass.

This beer pours a hazy pale golden with a thin white head without much lace. The smell is a little lemony with some pale malts and a touch of wheat. The overall wheat flavor in this beer was a little weak but not too bad. The mouthfeel was right on for the style, a nice body with a good amount of carbonation. Overall a drinkable beer, quite refreshing, just no enough wheat flavor for the style.

Appears a light gold with a tiny head. Tiny traces of lacing can be seen.
Smell is of crisp wheat with some spiciness and citrus notes to the mix.
The taste is of the same aromas mentioned.
Mouthfeel is of light medium body with a citrusy sweetness rolling along the tonge.
Drinkability is decent enough for a summer brew. Nothing too spectacular going on here though.
