Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Appears a hazy, bright yellow color with a oddly small white head that leaves great lacing.

The nose has soft yeasty characters, with breadiness, a touch of spiciness and sweetness. Beyond that, it's lacking in character. The taste is along those lines, but the spiciness is shown off more. Again, pretty laid-back and not something you want to go back for again. I expected a bit more yeast here, and a touch more malt character.

The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied, with a slightly sticky finish. High levels of carbonation finish this off. Overall, it's a decent brew but not something I'd reach out for again. Fairly laid-back and one dimensional, but refreshing.

A- This beer is impeccably clear. Light pale yellow blonde so clean you can read the newspaper through it. White crisp foam on top gives way to some clingy lace. But what really stands out above all is the clarity.

S- Light, ale aroma, citrus. Nothing over powering. Just solid enough.

T- Tart citrus up front, Belgian ale bitterness on the finish. Just a crisp flavor.

M- Everything seems spot on with this one. Easy and again, crisp. Just feels real sharp on the tongue but doesn't overdo it.

O- Pleasant light summer ale. Good working in the yard kind of beer. Nothing crazy about it, but just a good kick back after work and relax kind of brew.
