Pours a cloudy dark orange color with white head. Coriander, cloves, and some raw wheat notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, and a little chewy. Easy drinking and not too sweet.

decent head, little lacing, pleasant aroma - a bit fruity. Nice citrus taste but not overbearing like their Shandy’s. Very refreshing. A nice summer evening on-the-deck beer.

Hazy Orange, no head, no lacing and high carbonation Aroma of malted wheat, and berry fruitness. Very fruity flavor with notes of pale and wheated malts. Light body and heavily carbonated. Decent flavor and very refreshing.

bottle. Golden with small head. Very generic wheat beer with some fruitiness. Lightly sweet wheat. I wonder who this would appeal to. It doesn’t really do anything for me, yet there’s nothing really wrong with it.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a hazy golden/orange/light brown colored body with no head whatsoever, lacing is spotty and leaves no rings. There is a fair amount of carbonation surfacing. I’m just wondering what is that floating around within the brew? I have no clue. The smell had some blueberry, orange and wheat, kinda like fruity pebbles. The taste had the previously mentioned flavors come back but with a bit of lemon and lime. The palate was about a light to medium, slightly sessionable, extreme fruity aftertaste, wet fruity finish, fair amount of carbonation hitting the tongue. Overall, just a fruit/vegetable beer that doesn’t really go with anything, was a decent dessert beer on my back deck watching the sun go down on a Spring evening, could be a decent "crossover" for a malt drinker to turn to beer.

Still as good as I remember it. Yes, I said good. This is a slice of nostalgia. Maybe it is because it was my first beer that wasn’t a lite or typical BMC beer. Or, it is because it reminds me of Fruity Pebbles. Either way, still as good as I remember.

This is a great beer to enjoy in the summer. Very refreshing with a nice but not overpowering fruity taste.
