Picked one of these up at Publix where they had a bunch of singles lying around. Pours a really pretty orange/red, sunset, rusty type color, clear, but with very little head and no lacing. The color is really quite lovely, though.

Nose is light and fruity, with strawberry type scents coming through, and lightly malty. Nothing big or special, but pleasing nonetheless. Taste is much less fruity, and much more malty. There are some nice toasty flavors coming through. It finishes with a slightly displeasing sourness though, not awful, just unexpected and a bit off putting.

Mouthfeel is okay, not too watery, but not very chewy, either. Still, it's bubbly enough to be pleasant. As for drinkability, I imagine this would be nice in the summer, very cold, and according to other reviews, probably smoother on tap. Not an awful beer at all- if you can find it cheap, and it's hot out, give it a try.

I live in florida and only a few minutes from this brewer so I decided to give this beer a try.
Not impressed. It looks and smells pretty good , however, there is no flavor. I was disappointed at least. It seems like florida brewers only produce wheat or amber ales and their not succeeding at it. I would like to see a dark beer for once. Their 'Florida Lager' is pretty good though. Had it on tap at a local bar.
