I love the look of this! Hazy, thick head with amazing retention. A pear like, light honey and straw yellow blend. The carbonation looks so lively; like an alka seltzer tablet was dropped inside! Aroma is citrusy and sugary sweet, especially orange. Not surprising considering the bottle says it was brewed with orange peel. Tasty is mostly citrusy and orange sweet. A very refreshing taste, like an orange soda. (I mean this in a good way) Feel is creamy and smooth. The carbonation really settles and there is very little left towards the end of the beer. I drank this on a super cold east coast mid November evening. I could see how this beer would be even better in the summer. However, I had it with a light and healthy meal of broiled salmon, Brussel sprouts and pear salad and they complemented each other nicely.

Apr 2013. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. It's April. It's time & this could be THE beer for this summer. Light enough & tasty enough. The question is, accessible enough?

Glad it was on tap as I'm not sure I would have picked up the bottle due to the image on the label.

11/14/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Lovely light lemony flavor. Where was this wonderfulness during the summer?

I had this on tap at Garaje in SF. I find the spice notes overpowering in most white ales. Not this one. It's not as good, or as complex, as Allagash White but definitely a quality beer. Overall, I can't imagine a better session beer for a hot day. I would not hesitate to pick up a six pack for soaking up some sun, if I knew where to find one.
