From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 11, 2013.

It has a foggy pale yellow to nearly white colored pour not unlike a witbier. The carbonation is excitable and builds up to a lingering fizzy white head.

The nose exclaims "summer is here" with mellow pale malts, wheat, and a twist of fresh lemon on the backside.

The body is summery light which is just right for the style.

The taste echoes the esters of the nose on my palate with an upfront but pleasant wheat note, biscuit, pale malts, mild sweetness, and a hint of lemon. Slight dryness at the end. It is great for a humid, hot New England day like today.

A light, refreshing, citrusy brew.

Was served very cold, in an Imperial pint. Light, golden yellow hue in the glass with a small, white head that didn't last long.

Flavor is light and bright at first: citrusy, lemony hops. It mellows with a hay-like note at the midrange. End is crisp and clean. While the citrus/lemon existed throughout, it was more noticeable at beginning & end of each taste.

Mouthfeel is quite light, but moderated by the balanced hay middle taste. The light mouthfeel is noticeble again at the end, reinforcing the clean finish.

Fragrance is very light and bright.

Overall: a nice, refreshing beer for a hot day.
