I highly recommend this good example of the style. American blondes don't always have a lot of personality, but this one works in a bikini!

I had this in a little shop in Frederiksted while shopping for souvenirs. What a nice surprise. There aren't a lot of Good Caribbean beers, but this is a decent one.

It has a decent head and a great aroma. The taste is yeasty, hoppy, and bitter, all in small doses. It works.

I was disappointed that there wasn't a good best place anywhere in the town, as we had already decided not to go to the bigger town on our one day visit. Bit I was pleaded to try one good local brew. My son liked it too.

Somewhat sour wheat but I would agree that I would drink this if I were out a day on the beach. Not super drinkable, but drinkable. Pure yellow bodied.JoshuaR’s bottle. A little astringent. Some caramel, not much wheat. A tad of citrus. Not the best in their lineup.

poured into a sierra nevada flared pint glass. the hops etched into the glass caused a huge tornado of bubbles to rise into a nice bright white head.

smell is grains and sugar and musty

taste is grains with sweet phenols, decent balance.

mouthfeel is crisp and watery and dry

very average overall, would probably be good mixed in with a session of pina coladas while sitting on a beach.
