4.35/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a great looking golden beer with hints of amber. There is medium amount of carbonation with a nice thick white head that sits on top of the beer throughout the entire drink.
Smell has a great base of wheat beer. On top of that is some very nice citrus hop smells. The citrus is very nice but slightly different than most with a great combination of grapefruit, orange, and something slightly more.
Taste is just as good as the smell, even better. The citrus and fruity hop tastes are so strong that they add so much great taste. However, they are the perfect amount on the borderline of being too much, because they are nicely balanced with a base of wheat.
Mouthfeel is very nice. Not too thick, not too thin. But a very nice smooth feel.
Drinkability is awesome on this beer. A great balance of all things needed. The perfect summer seasonal beer. A beer could not be matched any better to a season.
