I’ve had this about two dozen times, both on draft and in bottle. I don’t know why I keep getting it (maybe because it’s fairly common at places that don’t sell good beers). It looks fine in a glass, but the aroma is pungent (skunked) and the taste is just bad. If I was really thirsty, it probably wouldn’t be so bad, but otherwise, no thanks.

12 oz bottle. Pours a murky orange gold color with a large white head. The aroma is full of fruit, spice and some caramel. The taste is wheat with some fruit nicely blended in.

Cloudy golden under a tight and medium-thick white head. Big citrusy orange rind and blueberry aroma with bready wheaty undertones with lots of coriander. Smooth flavor that’s medium full with wheaty tones of blueberry muffin combined with a citrusy grapefruity undertone and a good bit of coriander again from the nose, smooth mellow wheaty undertone with a finish of blueberry and coriander. Not shabby.

Cloudy yellow pour with a white head and great retention. Spotty lacing. Soft mouthfeel. Sweet lemon and orange wheat flavor. Smooth. Light and refreshing.

Pours a hazy light coper with a light white head. Smells like a wheat beer for sure, and I don’t usually care for wheat beers. Flavor of citrus and honey. Crisp and smooth in the mouth. Though this isn’t one of my favorite styles of beer and I wasn’t expecting much it is at least somewhat refreshing.

A good wheat beer with nice fruity tones. If you're not a fan of sweeter than normal wheat beers it's great. Still a good summer beer. -Box ��

NikkTwist (3286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2017 Draft at Irish Pol. Murky orange gold pour with a white foamy top. Perfumey citrus candy aroma. Tastes ... bizarre! Artificial Orange Tang. Cotton candy. Notes of banana, guava and passionfruit. Kiwi fruit. Circus peanuts. Rosewater. Somewhat sweet, though balanced. Giant leaps of tropical fruit. Blunt. Exactly not what I was expecting. This was my 3000 rating!

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange gold color with a large white head. The aroma is full of fruit, spice and some caramel. The taste is big on wheat with some fruit nicely blended in.
