22oz bottle from strykzone.Golden orange opaque hue with a big fluffy head. Pine is the dominant smell and flavor. But not over powering. Very interesting. Glad I got to try it.

Can 355ml @ The Pig, Washington, DC
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, citrus, grass and orange peel. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long slightly dry, orange, grassy and citrus finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2015
Can, at the pig, DC. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small white head. Pineapple and a generic tropical fruity touch. Some reason notes too. It’s soft and medium bodied, quite dry. Peaches, pineapple and a decent bitterness in the flavor, with a medium length finish. A refreshing one, but a tad too focused on fruits I think. 150619

Aroma of hops yellow in color. Taste is kind of bready. Sits OK on the palate. Not really that good.

2014 can. Light, clear yellow color with an orange tint, white head. Aroma is really nice, rich citrus and orange. Taste is the orange zest then the pine hops balance it out. Little malt sweetness but don't detect much wheat flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Churchkey for their SAVOR event. Poured a blonde color with a small white head. Aroma was some light wheat notes, citrus hops. Lots of resin. Pretty tasty.

solidfunk (5158) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Light but very nice grapefruit aroma with some hay. Blonde pour with some head. Light bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Very smooth and nice for style. Like what a good wheat beer is without all the hops experimentation going on in the style these days. Tap at Churchkey.

ccex (1056) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 oz. con pours a clear orange color with moderate white head and some lacing. Aroma has pineapple, orange, and wheat bread. Taste is malty sweet with a little hoppy bitterness in the clean finish, but with a bready aftertaste. Body is light to medium with a crisp mouthfeel and slight carbonation. An easily drinkable, slightly different summer beer which is worth a try
