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.

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. It’s definitely one of the most satisfying American Wheats I’ve had and (although that isn’t saying a lot) it’s 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.
