3.73/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Bench Warmers, The Big, OR $3.75 a pint into chilled shaker glass (argh).

Straw yellow clear body (once the friggin frost on the glass disappeared) multiple streams of medium size bubbles under finger and a half frozen frothy white head, medium dissipation with not much lacing. Citrusy nose, lemony, clean wheat body with good dose of apparently citrus hops on back end. Taste is once again citrusy, almost like someone put the proverbial lemon wedge in here, a bit of piney resin for balance. Mouthfeel close to medium, a bit heavy for the style, fairly dry, astringent finish. Not exactly my cup of tea, a bit heavy on the lemon esters and tres hoppy for the style, but ABV relatively well hidden, though this is my no means a session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

4.24/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured bottle into glass. 7.5 % abv

Appearance- Pours a translucent golden yellow with a lively two finger head that hangs around.

Smell- Ripe orange along with grapefruit citrus hints. Sweet bready malt as well.

Taste- A fresh toasted biscuit malt flavor arrives and quickly develops into a strong wheat character. This wheat flavor blends along nicely with the citric hop bitterness as the two tastes co-mingle with each other. This wheat/hop taste pairing of this beer is interesting and different to me. Very easy drinking.

Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light and thin for the vibrant taste and 7.5 percent abv. Well done.

Overall- A very interesting and delicious beer that is both wheaty and hoppy. A top among the APWA style for sure. As my first Lagunitas beer I was impressed. A must try for those seeking a tasty and potent warm weather brew.
