3.33/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy, pale golden yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly fades to a mere film on the beer.

The first thing I smell is some fairly potent hops, followed by smells of pepper, earth and wet hay. A little citrus and fruity sweetness rounds it out. It's reminiscent of a witbier but hoppier.

The taste, sadly, does not measure up to the interesting and powerful smell. While it's similar with grassy hops, a little spices and some lemon tartness it's watery in taste.

The mouthfeel, again, is a little thin and weak with not quite enough oomph to make this a light and easy brew or erase the watery feel from the brew.

Overall this beer started amazing but quickly went downhill when the taste just couldn't measure up to the promising nose. It's a shame because this beer could have been so much more, a more potent flavour and some stronger carbonation and this would have been one amazing light summer beer.

3.59/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - poured a hazy copper gold, medium sized head that dissipated fairly quickly

S -Orange and slightly sweet malt and hops

T - Very smooth, strong florally hops, sweet malt and coriander. Very light in flavour

M - Light, highly carbonated, quite dry

O - As as the style goes, this wasn't bad at all. This is a light, dry, but very drinkable beer. A bit watery and light for my tastes, but not bad if this is what you're looking for.

3.64/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a low amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin ring collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has flavors of spicy hops and a light amount of bitterness and hints of pale malts. Notes of yeast are also perceptible. Bitterness and spicy flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly dry on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't match up to some of the better examples of the style but is pretty good considering it is organic.
