COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

Can to pint. Orange with a little bit of head. Smells and tastes sweet and wheaty. Average on the palate.

stevoj (4965) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours out as a flat, murky orange, with minimal to zero head. Citrus orange aroma and taste, Light bodied wheat ale where the citrus flavor dominates. Summer refresher nothing more, nothing less.

czar (8996) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a nice orange cap, some retention and lacing. doughy caramel, sweetish spicy cereals, phenols, fruitiness - oranges, wheat spiciness, bitter herbs and other spices - dill upfront, shy coriander in this miscellaneous spicy concoction, very lightly tart small fruits. moderately low carbonation, light body, slightly astringent and assertive herbal-grassy-very peppery but also citrusy finish.

ganache (5853) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Nose is extremely sweet and candyish, honeyed, orange, citric; pours cloudy golden with extremely heavy carbonation and a fizzy cola head. Taste is actually not all that sweet, even off-dry; some earthy and anise-leaning character (Id say its a phenol) with some strong-starting alcohol, orange jam, strong honey. Wheat, minerals, spice, very light caramel. Medium-full body, sting of tartness and light burn on the tongue, everywhere an assault. I like the bready bit toward the end, but thats also washed out a bit by the phenols. Actually really much more fun to drink than Ive let on, has some rich spirit undertones and stands up against other foods and drinks.

Light. Refreshing. Smooth. Sweet. Slightly wheaty with a bit of citrus. A malty finish.

Draft. Pours an orange color. Aroma and taste are citrus and wheat. Light bodied and quite refreshing.

2.5
ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. Aromas of orange, cereal and wheat, and a light bit of clove. The appearance is a cloudy orange body with a very thin white ring that doesnt leave any lace. The beer is a medium sweet with a light bitter. It has a flat, light, creamy carbonation with a medium body and a light, slick texture. A strong spicy (clove) note comes through in the finish with a bit of an orange peel. The aftertaste is a dry spicy note. Im a bit suspicious that they may have poured me a Blue Moon, but I have no proof.

Hangover (1134) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Copper pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost like a honey mead. flavor is mostly honey with some orange peel and other citrus notes. Some light spice towards the finish honey fades quickly. Interesting take on the style.

2.8
ectuohy27 (1155) - ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2014
High-quality, dense, and nicely layered, but too much hops (and too little of the "lightly toasted caramel"), to say the least.

3.6
tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Can shared. Pours a medium almost unfiltered orange color with white head. Nice wheat and malt aroma with a touch of citrus. The flavor is wheat and orange. Decent flavor and body. Overall pretty decent. Great summer beer.
