I have been in the market for a new session beer. Something I could enjoy an illogical amount of and not worry about the consequences. I really wanted it to be this beer but I was disappointed.

Beer served on draft at a local beer bar. Beer is light yellow like a wit almost and completely hazy. Forms a thin white head of tiny bubbles and not much else. No lacing, carbonation...moderate to low. Hard to tell with the haze.

Beer has a very mild aroma, some flowery stuff, a little grain.

Beer is really overwhelmingly fruity. But not in a hefe way. In a way that you would get if you soaked fruit in beer. Very flowery, very sweet, thin body, no carbonation in the mouth. Eh, not my favorite by a long shot.

Draft pint at Northdown, quick review from notes.
This is the 2nd time i've had this, it's been awhile so I tried it again.

Color is a saturated yellow orange, somewhat hazy, trails of carbonation visible, compact but dense head of white foam. Lasting retention, concentric rings of lace form on the opposite side of the glass.

Aroma is herbal, hoppy but seemingly a little aged. Dried citrus peel, light yeast as it warms.

Firmly bitter, light bodied though it feels more substantial than a lager. Well hopped, dry and grassy herbals, finishes clean. Some light traces of wheat dance around also. Overall it would make an ok session beer, seems less fresh than the first time on tap a year or two ago.

'11 release

Huge fucking white head on this one. Hazy light yellow body. The head retention is so strong it lasted beyond the last sip.

Wheat and light fruity esters in the aroma. Lemon accented hopping.

Taste was like drinking hoppy seltzer. Low to medium bitterness. Some of that grainy wheat flavor I'd expect. Just not a lot going on but it would be a great beer to drink on a day that's hot as shit out and you are sweating like a herd of fat trekkies in line for William Shatner's autograph.

As a lawnmower beer, this was decent.

Served in a snifter at The Firkin.

Haven't seen this one around before, so I figured I'd jump on it. It pours a hazy pale amber-straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit, orange zest, lemon peel, melon, light leek, and a backdrop of light caramel. The taste holds notes of orange rind (think licking the outside of an orange), lemon rind, grapefruit rind, wheat, light sourdough, flowers, minty light greens, and the clear, unmistakable flavor of hop pellet. The body is a hefty-ish light, with a light moderate carbonation and a very lightly grainy feel. Overall, a generally enjoyable little brew, something nice for the summer months, indeed.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a pale straw color, cloudy with a slight white head and excellent lacing. Smells very grainy and somewhat dusty. Light, but with a dose of citrus and some bitterness from hops. The taste is similar, with a bit more of a bite on the back end from the hops. My problem with very low alcohol beers like this is the incomplete fermentation leaving all that dusty grain flavor. Not as bad here as some, but still... Light and crisp overall with a soft finish. pleasant enough, but somewhat insubstantial.

This brew pours a passionfruit hue with nice carbonation that leaves a creamy,sudsy two finger head and lacing all around the rim very nice looking,wow the aroma is full on spicy,passionfruit and grapefruit notes and straight away i can tell why this brew goes by its name,it has an above average mouthfeel which is light bodied and even lighter at the finish with nice tastes of passionfruit,golden wheat and some citrus and i also find it a little dry and bitter at the very end but overall a nice and interesting drop just wish it had a higher ABV.
