look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Golden Orange with minimal head. I had two and I had to give it a pretty vigorous pour to get a finger of head out of it. It looks like your standard filtered wheat ale, so nothing new or out of the ordinary.
S: Spices, Wheat, and citrus. It smells good but it isn't something that I wanted to smell all day.
T: Starts with some nice spice notes and transitions to some citrus flavors and finishes with a very clean sweet malt flavor. I bought a six pack for a cookout where I two and didn't take any home with me. Everyone else liked it as well if that gives you an indication of the quality of flavor. The spices are by no means overpowering which is very nice. This beer shows very good balance and complexity for what it is.
M: This is a pretty good summer beer. Good carbonation and a moderate mouthfeel makes this something that you want to reach for if you have it in the fridge and need some refreshment.
D: This beer is very drinkable. I could definitely see myself using this as a session beer.
Final Notes: This is a tasty summer beer that I might have to grab another sixxer of due to the lack of selection around here. As far as flavors this beer reminds me of different things I like about some other summer beers and it rolled those qualities into a bottle of Indian Summer. This beer gives me hope in the rest of the line from Lazy Magnolia.
EDIT: had this beer on tap a couple weeks ago and was not impressed. I don't know what the deal was but it was very lackluster. I'm not going to edit the numbers but just leave a note in here. Could have been the keg, the glassware, or inconsistency in brewing. Without knowing more I can't take this beer down a peg or two based on one bad experience after having a better than average review of it before. If it happens again I'll play with the numbers and make note of it. otherwise I'll leave it where it sits.

2.71/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Served on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with no head or lacing whatsoever. Not a good start.
There are some hints of light orange peel and coriander in the aroma but light is the key word here. Not very exciting at all.
The flavor continues the trend of light flavors with a bit of caramel from the malt along with more orange and a bit of a bready yeasty note. Mouthfeel is extremely watery and light with just the least bit of bitterness.
Overall, I am disappointed with this one. Everything about it is light and a bit boring.
