Tap at Jefferson St/waterstone. Pours a hazy bright orange/deep yellow with a thin yet lasting white head. Served with an orange- had to set that down- but still aroma remains very oily, orange slice, juicy with honey and floral notes, light crackery malts,some wheat and herbs. Flavor is also very citrusy on wheat doughy malts, cracker, crisp clean and easy drinking. One of the better american wheat/honey wheats out there.

Part of a sampler at the brewery. Pours a clear pale golden color with a large head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma is syrupy citrus, light honey and toasted bread. Taste is bready, bitter citrus, light honey and grain. Chewy texture. Medium bodied. Solid. One of several beers that the brewmaster seems to have imported from his previous brewing gig (Monkey King in Florida).
