Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

Fairly generic wheat beer....citrus, wheat and yeast in the aroma/flavor. The honey doesnít really make an appearance, although there is a light caramel component that doesnít quite fit.

Can at home. A full bodied, viscous wheat ale. Kinda bright orange pour. Aroma is wheat and orange. Bready with heavy malts, wheat bread, orange zest. Dry finish. Meh.

Aroma is wheat/wheat bread and mild notes of fruit and spices. The flavor is wheat/wheat bread, fruit, light citrus and a smooth finish.

This beer was average start to finish. Nothing great to say about it. Would drink again though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a Wit it is very heavy with little head or lacing. Pour is like a apple cider color. Aroma is as of a sour ale. Very bland astringent taste. Pass.

Bottle to Hefe glass. Orange peel and malt sweetness on the nose. Bright wheat, orange, sweetness from the honey in the taste. Big carbonation throughout. Not the best whit but damn drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the NYC craft beer festival. Cloudy yellow orang color with a nice wheaty drink ability. Very good

Orange pour from bottle at home. This is super carbonated - like drinking orange sprite. Fruity and wheaty. Just what I hate.

Aroma is definitely a wheat, slight coriander, sweet malt. Appearance is wheat, ridiculous head on a pour that I didnít think was overly aggressive. Taste is...well, wheat, then something sweet I canít put my finger on. Probably coriander but itís so light that itís hard to identify. Mouthfeel is pretty carbonated, but oddly sticky. Overall...never been a fan of the style so itís hard to give it a fair rating. At least it doesnít taste like every other Arcadia beer.
