UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Bottle to glass. Pours a bright orange, slightly hazy. Good looking beer. Aroma is wheat, grain, grass with hints of citrus, hints of yeast. Taste is wheat, grain with orange and spice. Light sweetness. Palate is thin, medium carbination. Enjoyable beer from a style that I?m not typically fond of.

Tap pours hazy yellow to orangeish gold with white froth. The aroma is nice sweet musty grains. It has a very solid earthy wheat flavor with a moderate amount of grains and spice to go with a bright lightly orange and pearish flavor. Light approachable and easy to enjoy for an American wheat.

BLADT (198) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
From tap. Beautiful, full orange in glass with just the right amount of head. Great lacing. This is a damn good looking beer. Aroma is constrained. Wheat and orange peels. Some faint grass and black pepper. Taste is wheat beer plus. Citrus notes show through nicely. The hops played well, adding a just the right amount of grassy bitterness. Highly drinkable. Take me to a ballgame and give me a tall pour of this, please.

12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a white head. Aroma is wheat, some light hops and ever-so-slightly fruity. Taste is pretty similar, mostly a wheat flavor with a very light hop taste on the end as well. I donít get much spice or fruit out of the flavor though. Body is average, slightly creamy and average carbonation. It might sound like Iím down on this beer but it ís actually pretty good. Iím not really a huge fan of this style, but this beer is very easily drinkable. I generally prefer more robust beers, but this one is worth a shot.

Light nose. Light taste and slightly fruity. I generally like bells beers, but this was somewhat average to me.

Pours a hazy lemon yellow, softly pastel with a finger of white foam that fell fast. Nose is golden wheat with a bit of sweetness on it. Bright lemon zest rounds out the nose. Taste is a bit maltier than I expected. medium light rather than light. The mouthfeel is creamy and has plenty of carbonation to keep that in check. The wheat is crisp and dry. The middle of the beer is juicy with sweet lemon peel and tart lemon too. There is a bit of a sour taste lurking in the shadows that never really steps out but it gives the drink a slight pucker. The middle of the beer is juicy with fruit. Refreshing and crisp with a drying finish.

bottle, pours a cloudy straw yellow/orange mix with a thin white head. Aroma is orange / citrus, hay, wheat, yeast. Flavor is similar... citrus fruits, wheat, bread. Quite drinkable, tastes similar (but better) than the mass produced "belgian whites"

One of the best wheat beers out there. Probably the best beer to sit and drink in the sun all day long!

Pours hazy orangey yellow. Nose is orange and wheat, some coriander/spices. Taste matches nose, except on the finish there's a metallic note, with a slight bitterness. Good summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
