4.13/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours a golden honey color into my pint glass with a small white, fizzy head that dissipates rather quickly.
Smell: Sweet malty notes that hide behind big, bitter citrus aromas.
Taste: Very well-balanced brew with nice malt backing. The citric hops drive the taste but are not overpowering. Nice wheaty finish.
Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated and light-to-medium bodied for the style.
Drinkability: Probably one of the strongest points of this brew, it balances great flavor with a high level of drinkability. I could easily have another bottle or 2.
This beer is one of my mainstays, I like to keep a sixer around at all times. I just finally got around to reviewing it. If for some reason you haven't tried this yet, go out and grab a sixer.
