From a 12 oz bottle; revisited in November 2018 with a 12 oz can.
Hazy pale golden body with a decent if bubbly head.
Light body with medium carbonation.
Overly mild light wheat and citrus flavor that becomes more clearly orange in the aftertaste. Mild bitterness.

if you like shock top this a slight step up but lacks the specific kick of other full sail products. Its not bad, just that fruity wheat beer is, what it is.
I love full sail, but i would call this beer somewhat above average

No thanks, this smells like artificially-flavored soda. The base wheat beer is fine but bland, and while the orange recedes on your tongue, that aroma is knocking me out.

From a mixed 12 Pack. Pours to a permanent white head and gold- orange hazy hue. Aroma is definitely oranges and pale malts. Same for the taste. It delivers a very pleasantly sweet but not too sweet charge of orange flavor balanced with alcohol and malts. Not a "frou frou" beer at all. Light and smooth MF. Overall a pleasant experience as a stand alone, grown up alternative to an orange soda or cocktail or a complement to compatible dishes (think fish, chicken, sweet BBQ).

Cloudy pale yellow with one finger of white head. Splotches of lace.
Smell is citrus and malt.
Taste is orange malty and a touch of hops for balance. A bit of light sourness from the wheat.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and semi sweet.
Overall a nice Summer refresher.

Appearance: poured an opaque golden straw color with very little head. Appears slightly cloudy but no sediment.

Smell: citrus, tart, yeasty, and a little bit of honey.

Taste: starts out tart and sweet. Picked up some bananas and little esters. Mildly citrus throughout with no notable hops. Flavors are a bit short-lived. The finish leaves a soda like quality. However it is refreshing.

Mouthfeel: light-bodied and highly-carbonated.

Overall: a good summer beer but thats as far as it goes.

Orangish red with a almost no head. Creamy wheat with orange and raspberry on the nose. The taste brings out a lot of the nose but with added strawberry and cranberry red fruit notes. An odd fairness of orange tang lingers on the finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. The finish is very juicy. This taste a little too fruit forward to me almost as if someone mixed light beer So The some orange juice and a little strawberry puree. Maybe I would have liked it better on a warmer day.
