3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving a fantastic level of foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of an orange smell mixed with a strong showing of wheat. Along with these are some lighter notes of a yeasty smell as well as a bit of lemon.
Taste – The taste begins with a wheat bread flavor mixed with a little bit of a drier orange flavor. The orange flavor lessens a bit as the flavor advances being replaced by some flavors of a more lemon like citrus. All the while a decent yeasty and lightly hopped grassy flavor comes to the tongue. In the end with the loss of the orange, increase in the lemon and grass and maintenance of the wheat a somewhat crisp and dry flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather fitting for the style creating a rather refreshing feel.
Overall – An alright and rather crisp brew, but really nothing that is worth going out of your way for.

On cask. Aroma of pepper, orange citrus, and wheat. Appears hazy orange with lots of lace, some off white foam. Tastes of bitter orange, sweet vanilla, and savory pepper. Thick and fizzy mouth feel. Overall, very good!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Cloudy orange amber pour with only a slight ring of foam. Tangelos. Cantaloupe. Butternut squash. Challah with orange marmalade. Celery stalks. Palm fronds. Sunflower seeds. Apricot pits. Juicy dark citrus with earthy resins and spice. Much fuller palate than a typical wheat beer but nothing too scary. Decent summer beer. Feels almost like a Sangria.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dan's. The pour is clearish gold with a decent white head and some good lace. The aroma is citrusy, with a blast of malt and a little spice on the back end. The flavor is very similar. There is a nice complexity and balance with the spiciness of then coriander, and a good zest from the citrus. The malt tones it down, which isn't bad. The mouth feel is definitely thin, and there isn't too much carbonation to back it up. The aftertaste is a little odd, but not bad overall.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Save On. Pale coudy caramel color with small head. Caramel/toffee/honey bready aroma. Medium sweet caramel apple with mild fruity wheat tang and slick oily caramel finish. Medium body. THis is probably the worst style of beer IMHO. Give me a well-made pale lager over this any time.
