Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Pilsner glass.

A- Finger width white head. Thin, spotty head. Clouded orange color.

S- Very wheaty with distinct citrus tones

T- Wheat and citrus, no real surprises.

M- Medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

O- Nice brew. Reminds me of other wheat beers with a distinctive touch.
