Haven't had the pleasure of drinking this little fella in quite some time...mmm...tasty.

Great clarity and equally fine golden color. Head retention dies off a bit as expected, but the lacing is thick and foamy.

Lots of fruit on the nose: orange peel, pineapple, pear and green apple, some red grapefruit, maybe even a touch of apricot. As it warms the wheat comes through a touch; definitely some malt character as it reaches room temp.

Flavors don't disappoint. Lingering apple rinds on the back palate along with some light pineapple notes. Front is a citrus bomb...kaboom. Lemon, almost akin to lemonade, some bitter grapefruit as well. Definitely has a helluva hop bite throughout but most noticeably on the finish, especially for a wheat beer.

Body is crisp, clean, and refreshing. Nice carbonation on this one that lends well to summer sippin'. A bit of residual stickiness so you never forget those glorious hops.

Definitely a bit of a heavy hitter coming in a touch over 7%, but these are pretty easy drinking as far as the abv goes. The alcohol is definitely not pronounced here. Kick back, relax, and enjoy.
