Received this in the Birthday BIF from jyounger30; thanks Jay! This has been a Want of mine since it came out. 750ml bottle into my Duvel Green tulip.

a - Pours a hazy, straw yellow color with two and a half fingers of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head lasts for several minutes and leaves an inch of head throughout drinking it. Spotty lacing left on the glass.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, wheat, grains, light funk, floral hops, earthy notes, grass, and spices. Really awesome nose; lightly sour and funky and some very nice citrus. Love it.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, spices, pepper, earthy notes, grass, fruit, wheat, grains, and bready malts. Very nice again, but more spice then the nose, and not as sour or funky. A small step down. As it warms up, more oranges and lemon, and gets better.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was an awesome pale wheat ale. Though they are different, this is up there with Gumballhead as my favorite in the style, and I like this one a little more. I think the nose is just awesome, with a lot of citrus mixing with funk and sourness. Very easy to drink beer that I'd love to get again sometime...really hoping they brew this one again.

Digging out some notes from a visit to DeCicco`s last year.

Appearance is yellow with a one finger, fizzy head. Its` nose is a mix of lemons, flora and wheat. The taste contains more lemon, crackers, some clove. Mouthfeel is low key, just a bit dry in the finish. This is a good summertime beer, perfect for enjoying while sitting next to the pool or beach.

A hazed gold with a prodigious head. Decent though not overwhelming lace, covering remains throughout the glass. Smell has lots of citrus and pine with faint notes of grass. Taste is like a wheat IPA with a lemon zest squeeze. Notes of wheat malt in the core try to reign in the rampant and deliciously assertive hops. Dry grapefruit finish with lemony pine oil on my palate. Feel is crisp and medium light with gently creamy carbonation. A great summer beer but an equally satisfying winter football beer. Nice

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a hazy, golden body. The foam is supported by vigorous carbonation rising to the surface and takes quite a while to settle.

S - Zesty citrus aromas with some earthy lemongrass and soft, bready malt in the background.

T - Spicy wheat notes up front with some sweet lime flavor. Pepper, basil, and lemongrass in the middle and some fruity notes of pear and tart wheat come out at the finish with more pungent citrus.

M - Medium-thick body, high carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - I don't quite know how to categorize this beer, but is definitely interesting. There is a lot of citrus and spice character as well as a perfect balance between thick, bready malt and tart wheat and fruit. Oddly satisfying and actually quite good; it kind of reminds me of a sour beer despite its apparent lack of any wild yeast or other bugs.

The appearance makes it apparent how this beer got its name. Pours deep hazy yellow in color with a white crisp head that fades quickly into a nice topper.

Citrusy in the nose. Lemon is up front with orange peel, grapefruit, and some light tropical notes of pineapple and papaya. White pepper and some yeast esters also.

Good beer. Distrust and full of lemon flavors. Moderately hopped with a distinct soft rounded creamy malt in the middle. Again grapefruit, orange zest, papaya, pineapple, and other fruit flavors. Nice spicy finish pepper, and more. Very nice.
