This is a slightly hazy, pale golden colored beer with a small white head.
The aroma is nothing much to speak of, other than a bit of yeast.
Its flavor begins as a normal wheat beer, then follows with some spice near the finish. There is also a slight citrus presence.
Mouthfeel is light in body and a bit under carbonated.

This is a decent beer, but nothing about it stands out as special to me.

Appearance- Don't let the name fool you this beer pretty cloudy but in a good way. It has nice cloudy hay yellow color to it. The head was virtually nonexistent but there was a little lace.

Smell- Definitely sweet other than that it is mildly citrus like.

Taste- It had a strong wheat malt taste, a little bit of sugar, citrus and some spice. I thought the aftertaste was a little bitterer than it should have been.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and easy to drink.

Drinkability- Average and refreshing.

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

Appearance: minimal head, clear, amber in color

Smell: orange, cinnamon, clove, and wheat

Taste: orange, lemon, light coriander, clove, and wheat

Mouthfeel: slightly sweet, light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: This is an ok witbier that has a touch too much spicing. Fairly undistinguishable, I will pass on this in the future.
