3/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - A pale yellow in color, reminds me of a witbier. A thin white cap is all that there is for head, the cap leaves no lacing. There are some black chunks of sediment hanging in suspension...is this a bottle conditioned brew?

S - Smells almost more like a citrus soda than a beer. Sweet aromas of lemon and lime with maybe just the slightest hint of grassy hop loitering in the background. Smells refreshing, maybe not so beerlike though.

T & M - A crisp wheat body is accented by fresh lime, lemon zest and ginger. The ginger comes across in a big way here. Light and thin bodied with a certain coarseness from the carbonation. It finishes very dry with a spicy finish.

D - The low ABV makes it sessionable I guess, but for me this is a "one and done" kind of brew. I think more than one and I would be suffering from some heartburn later. This is my first brew from Starr Hill, and judging by their lineup they are a good brewery. I think this one beer is their black sheep. I'll hold judgement on this brewery until I try some of their other brews.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: 1.5 finger bright white foam head on a hazy bright golden body. Decent lacing and retention.

S: mild citrus, mostly lemon and lime with some corriander and mustly pale malts.

T: Mild lemon and malts up front with a minimally tart lime and spicey finish.

M: light body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: Overall both aroma and taste are very mild. Its not a bad tasting beer but too bland.
