look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Bees wax yellow with a healthy dose of macro-effervesce. Clarity is clear, the head is eggshell white, lightly creamy, one finger standing with a good sense of retention. Decent sheet lacing.

S: Small dose of funk, wheat, lightly dry tart citrus, dried corn with an overall light delivery.

T: Citrusy, flowery green hops and wheat, a bit spicy, buttery banana, tangerine with a hint of funky tropical fruitiness in passing. Dry wheat backing, light tart finish.

M: Crisp carbonation, foams up a bit, light bodied with a slippery texture.

O: Overall smooth drinking with a spicy bite.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very pale yellow with a white foamy head.

The smell is pale malts, lemon, coriander,pepper and sugar.

The taste is much like the smell, lemons, sweet pale malts, pepper and coriander.

The mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Finished dry and watery like carbonated water.

Over not too bad, easy drinking, just a bit too carbonated and the finish is a bit watery.

look: 1.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

I picked this up at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99, making it $1.67 for a single 12oz brown bottle. Born on date of 4/3/13 on the label, so this bottle is just shy of 7 months old now.

The beer poured a slightly hazed pale yellow color with absolutely no head at all. The thin rim of white foam on top dissipated before the pour was over and there was virtually no lacing either.

The beer had a crackery malt smell, along with some wheat and citrusy hops.

The taste wasn't bad. It was full of crackery malt and wheat flavor along with some lemon tartness and spicy clove.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

I'd drink it again if it was offered to me, but I don't think I'll be seeking it out.
