BrettTaylor (738) - Radford, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Poured a soft gold color, medium head, moderate lacing. Aromas of orange and honey. Tastes are a clean wheat malt flavor along with hints of orange and honey as in the aroma. Refreshing.

Found old notes on this from some tasting in the past year. Honey color with cream head and decent lacing. Smells of wheat and whiskey. Wheaty flavor. Not crisp at all.

Can from Whole Foods Arlington. Nose of hops, citrus and spices. Taste is similar of hops and fruits and orange. Nice citrus notes across the finish. Sparky. Well done.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Can. Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick and frothy but effervescent white head. Aroma delivers fruity, wheaty and yeasty tones plus a hint of honey. Flavor adds some sweet orange to the medley, as well as a snippet of woody hops. Body is fairly firm, fizz is decent. Get censered!

There appears to be some very shady attempted ratings of this beer, and I’m going to point the finger at the brewery or associates thereof. Two users gave it marks of 4.9 and 4.7; the giver of the 4.9 has rated ONLY this beer, and the giver of the 4.7 rated ONLY this and two other beers from the same brewery, and rated those a 4.8 and a 5 respectively. I’m not going to spout some crap about ’the integrity of ratebeer’ or something similar, because no one should take craft beer too seriously. However, such a blatant attempt to skew ratings should be snickered at, and smacks of an unbecoming desperation. On to the rating... Appearance: mostly clear, a deep gold with a short, fizzy, fading white head. Aroma: honeyed cracker grains, a bit of citrus and a hint of spice. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a slight herbal and marmalade character. Finish: short, slightly watery, with a little musty honey lingering. Notes: Like a well-done beginner’s homebrew. Flavors were slightly muddled and musty, palate was light but on the watery side as opposed to bright and refreshing. 12 oz can featuring some cool artwork, from Total Wine in Fairfax, Virginia (Pickett Center).
