Sampled at Dark Lord day from a growler. Thanks for the share. Not much to this beer but still has some malt and wheat flavours to it. Hops do not play a roll at all. Would like to try more of this stuff. Would have again.

I had this at the November beer dinner the night it was released. It was absolutely fantastic. The aroma was a delicious orange fruitiness as well as the flavor. It was a gorgeous orange color. I hope they decide to put this one into bottles. I think I could drink this all the time.

(The vital stats above are partly taken from the DFH website, and partly courtesy of Mike, the head brewer in Rehoboth.) Tap at Rehoboth brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange / pink-grapefruit color; off-white head with decent retention. Reserved aroma shows orange rind, a mixture of citrus notes. Itís definitely one of the most satisfying American Wheats Iíve had and (although that isnít saying a lot) itís very tasty; my fiance and those nearby were drinking this all night (while I was getting loose on the Palo Santo Marron). Lively carbonation, medium-to-full mouthfeel; slightly acidic; orange, grapefruit, with a chewy citrusy / floral hop profile; the wheat character shows at the tail-end, which finishes sweet. It made me think of a witbier crossed with a blood orange and a 60-minute IPA.
