it pours amber pale, with a slight haze, and a finger width tan head. It has fruity aroma, with a strong taste of light grains/herbs, with a diminish or muted fruit taste. It has little or no bite, no metallic edge, and has a bitter after taste. not really filling and leaves the mouth dry.

12 oz. bottle, with coded date 130624 printed on the label. Not sure if that's a best by date or a born on date, so whatever. Acquired at the local Binny's as part of a mixed six pack. I just recently tried the Saugatuck + Binny's Hopfinder collaboration, and I liked it a lot, so I'm excited to see what we have here.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Hmm, strange. Pours about five parts of fluffy rocky cavernous off-white head to about one parts lemony orange colored beer body. Becomes a darker cloudier orange when I pour the rest of the bottle. Epically frothy head with good staying power. Fat fluffy lacing.

S - Smell is light and bready. Lemon zest. Grassy. Earthy. Some yeasty pineapple fruit presence.

T - Taste is very light, crisp, and bready / malty. Not a lot of the lemon zest or other fruit presence comes through much in the taste. Minimal fruit or hops detectable in the taste.

M - Feel is extremely dry and bready. High carbonation could probably be toned down a bit.

Overall, I definitely prefer the Saugatuck + Binny's Hopfinder collaboration over this one. It started out strong, but failed to deliver. Easy drinking with a moderate 4.90% abv, I would have no trouble sessioning this beer, but the flavor could stand to be amped up some.
