Pours a hazy straw orange like color with a thumb length bubbly white head. However, the head retention is not particularly long as per style as it soon dissipates completely.
Aromas of coriander, orange peel and light hints of banana.
The taste has a round wheat flavor, as well as a touch of caramel malt, that emits sweetness. Fruity esters evoke flavors of banana. As per style, there is the taste of orange peel as well as lemon. The middle palate is spicy and peppery, the coriander, in particular, balances the sweetness.
Medium bodied, a bit more on the smooth side than crisp.
Good example of the style.

Pours a cloudy light orange-ish color with some yeast chunks and a whisp of fizzy white had that drops to nothing. Fruity wheat flavors/aromas with a hint of banana, soap and minerals. Fairly drinkable, nothing too remarkable.

After Reading the reviews on this beer on beer advocate I went to a local liquor store and they actually carried singles of this beer. I poured in into a glass and I must say DAMN I really enjoyed this beer, very smooth and did not leave any after taste , i am definitely going back to get some more .

Hazy yellow golden poor with lively carbonation but short lived white head. Had a grassy, sweet citrus aroma - a bit floral. Taste is bubbly sweet orange, spice - clove/nutmeg - bit of bubblegum and perhaps bit of melon. Crisply carbonated with lively mouthfeel - delicious and full - perfect on a warm spring day.

White ale. Nice complex coloration. Little to no head. Light citrusy (orange) flavor. Crisp. Some nice subtle spices in this one! Comes in very cute bottle.
