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.

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.

On tap at Max's.

The beer pours a somewhat hazy, light gold color with decent head retention and lacing. Considering how low the abv. is, this beer offers up a pretty impressive aroma profile. I get lemon, flowers and light honey, which in combination are pretty appealing. The flavor profile replicates the nose... there is a bit of sweetness initially, but the light hoppy bittterness is sufficient to balance that quite nicely, leading to a fairly dry finish. Mouthfeel is pretty light, with something of a wheaty, bitter finish. Drinkability is pretty good, with the alcohol barely noticeable (as you might expect in a 3.9% abv. beer).

The bartender mentioned that this was a surprisingly flavorful beer for the alcohol, and I would agree. Considering the abv., this is a very solid beer that I wouldn't hesitate to order again. Perfect for the summer...

330ml bottle bought online from Beermerchants.com

Poured a nice golden yellow colour. Slightly off white head poured pretty thick and rocky then faded to good one finger covering. Lots of carbonation rushes to the surface... decent sticky lacing...

Aroma - Lots of typical amarillo notes up front... spicy juicy fruits (grapefruits, limes, light lemons, apples), tropical hints (faint pineapple), floral and grassy, light talcum powder traces, quite peppery, slightly perfumed.

Taste - Wheaty and hoppy (again lots of amarillo to the fore), juicy fruits (grapefruits, limes, apples, grapes), floral and grassy, chalky traces, faint honey sweetness, some light metallic notes, citric hop bitterness, quite floral...

Mouthfeel - Pretty sharp and dry... light bodied... very, very refreshing and quaffable especially at only 3.9%

Overall - An excellent and unusual hopped up Wheat beer... a perfect summer brew. Definitely recommended...
