Sampled this evening on 6/30/14. Had this once a couple of years back but came with a different older-style label as in the picture. The new label has a pair of lawn chairs on the label. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass.

Pours a straw-yellow with just a small white head that leaves good lacing when sipped that sticks to the sides of the glass. Light smell of lemon or citrus with some wheat with a hint of spice. The taste is the same and is very smooth and pleasant to drink. Goes down easy with no bitter aftertaste. Perfect carbonation as well. This is a great brew for the spring and summer months. Very pleased with this one!
