One2remeber (165) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2015
Canned 04/08. Attractive silky white head. Vibrant orange, yellow hue. Hazy is an understatement. Creamy, heavy hop oil (like a NZ galaxy), grainy husk texture gives a zesty flavor. Clean yeast. Tons of flavor relative to average AWA. Great 6-pack for golfing.

hman43 (520) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2015
It pours golden with a white head. It has aromas of wheat, spices, a hint of lemon, and other sweat fruit aromas. It has an initial crisp bit of sweet and sour fruit, lemon, and wheat. It is a bit less that moderately biter on the palate. There is also a bit of fruit rind on the palate.

jsquire (3694) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pale golden color out of the can with a sticky white head. Nose of stale lemon peel. This is a tangy beer with light tangerine and orange peel notes and a bit of spice. Strong yeast finish. Odd wheat beer.

Can picked up at the brewery. Slight grainy aroma with some citrus. Taste is sweet initially, then reveals some peppery hop character with light fruitiness. A bit on the sweet side. Slightly tart as it warms. decent enough.
