Bomber. Pours a clear, light orange with a tall frothy white head. Aroma is of grainy malty with orange peel. Taste is light crisp at first with the bitter orange peal most apparent. The grainy wheat shows up next with a very pleasant light maltiness. The sweetness is not sugary at all, but maintains a "yellow grapefruit" pleasantness. The beer finishes with an outstanding hoppiness, bordering on metallic. Carbonation is medium. Texture is water. Body is medium. The progression of tastes across each mouthful leads to a craving for another sip.
There is a trend on these sites to rank "big" beers higher than offerings that are lighter. Obviously, this should not be. The beer establishes a unique profile, bringing together the light sweetness of a kolsch, the smoothness of a wit, and the hoppiness of an pale ale. It is interesting and tasty. Good job CCB.

On tap. Pours a cloudy yellow with a fairly thick offwhite head. Smells like a standard wheat - citrus, coriander, a little hops spice. Flavor follows - a little metallic, but otherwise a highly sessionable ale.

750mL bottle. Poured cloudy straw golden with a tall, dense, well-retained white head.. sticky lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up fresh orange peel paired with dusty earth and wheaty notes.. some white spices complemented.. loved how it came back to the orange on the back of the nose. The flavor found tart wheat and orange peel throughout.. a touch metallic on the edges.. dry finish with tart orange and wheaty notes plus grassy character. Medium-bodied at most, with very filling carbonation on the palate.. refreshing.. this was solid stuff.
