12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.
L - chill hazed golden color with a white head that thinned out but still left waves of lacing.
S - tropical and citrus fruits with some earthiness in the background.
T - full of tropical fruit and citrus, it's sweet, it's tart and it's all held together with a solid malt backbone.
F - crisp, light and refreshing.
O - one the better examples of the style done organically, cool!

A - A touch hazy yet bright yellow bodied. Head is as expected with some good lacing.
S - Nothing mind blowing just a good wheat profile, lemon zest, and mild hops.
T - Wow that's good. I really like the balanced between the lemon and hops with a great wheat body.
M - Session ale indeed. Too bad I only had one.
Overall I may just get this again. Organic ales kick ass.

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Slightly hazy bright yellow with 1/2-finger of stark white big-bubbled foamy head with good retention and globs of lace.
S: Fresh, bright citrusy hops with lemon, pineapple, and orange with some pine thrown in for good measure. The maltiness is not insignificant with wheaty twang in there.
T: The flavor is superb with a solid wheat and pale maltiness but overthrown by huge tropical fruitness of mango and pineapple with big juicy citrus lemon, orange and grapefruit notes. Plenty floral in the hops department as well. A really delicious well-balanced hoppiness which hits a lot of different angles on its way down.
M: Light but a little more than intended and needed so due to overzealous carbonation.
O: This drinks like a lightened version of Little Sumpin' Sumpin' -- big hops flavor with the wheaty tanginess. Tone down the carbonation by 20%, and Peak would have a real winner. As spring/summer beers go, this is a can't miss. I was really impressed with this brew.

Probably my favorite summer beer. The aroma is loaded with bright citrus. Hop character up front, then a rush of nice wheat flavor, contrasting the hops really well. Finishes dry and clean. Nice carbonation. I could have many of these on a warm summer day, and appreciate the taste of each one. A gem.

Enjoyed on a pleasant cool summer night.
Pours a bright yellow with a decent head. Smells a bit soapy & lemony.
Tastes light, lemony & a faint pepper. Nice balance, easy to drink. Upon more sips taste a faint bit of the big D (diacetyl) in the background...due to being brewed @ Shipyard? Lol.
Decent beer I would drink during the summer in small amounts.

2.48/5 rDev -30.9%
A: Poured a clear copper with quickly dissipating head. No lacing.
S: Smells piney and spicey.
T: Tastes coppery with pine and spice up front. Not much to balance the spiceyness
M: Watery and dull fair amount of CO2 which is good for a summer beer
D: Glad I only got one of these, not a terrible beer but definently below my expectations
