poured out of the bottle. Hay and hints of oranges in the nose. Rich yellow with a slight copper hue, decent haze and frothy white head that retains health for quite a while. Medium mouth feel for a wheat with fair carbonation. Was expecting a little richer texture to match the haze visually. Nice crisp grain flavors with slight hay and good amount of fruitiness. Good wheat ale for the summer season.

Like a much better version of Blue Moon White Belgian. This is a bit more sour and yeasty, but also smooth and mildly sweet.

Wow, look at all those ratings!! While this isn’t a knock your socks off or anything brew, it’s one of very few American Wheats that is AWEOME.

Pours murky orange with a thick head. Initial yeasty bread taste with a hint of citrus lemon and mild spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Lots of sediment, orange hazy wheat. Do get the spicy hops and citrus while not losing the wheat.

Beer pours hazy amber to honey colored, with a nice bit of continued bubbling. Pours with about 3/4" of dense white foam, beer smells of pepper, citrus and an off putting smell that is hard to place if drank cold. Once past this particular aroma and letting the beer warm it comes across the palate smooth, and silky tastes of wheat, pepper, and has a bitter hop finish with a warming aftertaste. Beer is complex enough to appease most but still an easy drinker.

On tap at the Federal Taphouse in Harrisburg, Penn. Olive-yellow pour with a little wheat haze. Loads of toast, wheat, coriander, and fruity notes on the nose. Medium body. Great spicy toast with a nice bitter finale. The wheat is a big part of this but the fruity spice makes it.

emusche (126) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange color; billowy, white head. Aromas of orange, wheat, lemon, some spice (coriander?). Taste is more mellow and smooth than the aroma would indicate, and that's a good thing, mostly mild wheat and a little hint of the orange/lemon combo. Nice offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
