Pours a straw yellow color. Well carbonated. Lots of sediment. Firm white head, about two fingers. Great retention, good lacing.
Aroma is odd. Coriander, pepper. Orange. Somewhat medicinal, or is it a spice. I can't quite put my finger on it.
Taste is moderately spice spicy. Pretty good wheat backbone. Coriander, white pepper.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied. Initially odd, but I've adapted. Pretty drinkable.
Overall, it's pretty good. Different, but I adapted. Good brew. Aftertaste, is that plum? Anyway, I would probably buy it again, and I might recommend it.
Old rating. Pretty standard wheat beer. Orange peel, coriander, light wheaty body. Fine summer drinker. Grumbo (3756) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle from Gristedes, 8th Avenue, New York. Pours hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit and flowers. Towards heavy sweetness, light sour.

Bottle from Asda. Hazy gold in colour, with a thin, white, head. Aroma of citrus fruits, white bread and coriander. A rather thin mouthfeel, with flavours of bubble gum, grainy malts and orange peel, leading to a dryish finish. Ok. tommann (3897) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2017

Deep cloudy burnt orange but no head. Heavy on the orange, cheap orange, berries, spice, malt, yeast and coriander. Sweet and malty residue with a dash of spice and toothpaste. Quick finish. Bordering on unpleasant. Martin243 (1214) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2017
A fair stab at a Hoegaarden tribute: interesting minty note, but the orange and coriander seem a bit muted. Nowt special brewperman (22) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2017
What happened to Harpoon? When they went national, the wheels came off, and this beer is a good example. Sure, it’s unfiltered, but the banana, cloves and spices taste like they were made in a lab. The whole thing is a sweet, sticky mess, like Sprite going flat. Shooting for the mainstream left them with nothing of note, including this beer. Just because it’s readily available doesn’t mean you should drink it.
