Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Shit, with this pathetically mild Winter, Summer doesn't seem so far away... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises lemon peel, orange zest, light cracked wheat, and a touch of grass. The taste generally brings in more of the same, but now the lemon takes command (and in quite the funky style), and some mild cardboard buts its way in as well. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, though I can see people actually enjoying such a lemonade-y beer in the Summer months, this stuff just ain't my schtick. The lemon is too forward and slightly artificial-tasting and the cardboard element doesn't do anybody any favors.

Poured a clear deep straw hue with a minimal wispy white cap. There was little retention and lacing.

The smell featured cereal grains and caramel.

The taste consisted a drab round malts with a slight herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was full with a lazy carbonation.

Overall uneventful.

Mix-n-match 6 pack purchase in DeLand, FL.

This beer pours nicely with a thick, bubbly white head. It's pale yellow in color and is slightly cloudy. It has the look of a solid wheat beer. Smells of sweet husky corn, wheat bread, strawberries, and bubblegum. First taste reveals mild wheat flavors with some lemony rinds and a little bit of grassy hops. Flavoring is light but that's what you'd expect from a summer ale like this. The beer goes down smoothly and is light and bubbly on the tongue, crisp. All in all a nice refreshing wheat beer that is light both in taste and body. For what it's trying to be it does the trick.

A - Slightly cloudy marigold brew with a crisp white head and good lace.

S - Lemon-bread. Sassafras. Chamomile tea.

T - More lemon baked goods. Lemon girl scout cookies. Grassy and herbal.

M - Light bodied and drinkable. Light, refreshing and spot on for summer drinking...too bad it's Halloween and 50 degrees out right now.
