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.

Only 2.4 percent abv. wish it was higher and expensive. I payed 3 dollars for one bottle.

Super pale yellow pour.way too much head but a pure bridal white.

Very strong of wheat and a little hoppy spice on the nose. I'd call it nutmeg.

The taste is an over whelming sweet that has a powerful bitter to back it up. My mouth goes numb from flavor over load. The wheat malt is clean crisp and sweet. I want too drink this in the sun!

The mouth feel is slick and light. Hop resins make this beer palatable, but out is so light and drinkable.

'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 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...

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.
