Poured a golden body with large foamy head and lace patches everywhere.
Aroma is grainy with good citric hop presence and touch of sweetness.
Smooth body that is light-drinking, this beer has mostly a bitter citric hop taste as well as some sweetness from pils malt and light fruit sweetness (straddles between tropical and grape).
Well balanced and enjoyable beer that keeps the ABV well-hidden.

2.54/5  rDev -40.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, bright yellow in color, clear

Smell: pithy citrus rind

Taste: grain, light butter, and tropical fruit hops

Mouthfeel: light body, slightly bitter, medium carbonation

Overall: Not what I was expecting. This had a buttery grainy taste to it that was not appealing. I usually like Bruery beers, but this did not come together for me. I will be passing on this.
