WOW !!.... This is the best beer I've had thusfar out of an already appreciated brewery.... As I poured a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass, a massive head appears atop a clear golden brew.... While I'm drinking it, a beautiful and plentiful lacing occurs....

I take a smell, and my initial thoughts are of how hoppy this beer is.... It has a mostly hoppy and wheaty dominated scent with citrusy notes of lemon and orange.... Funny thing is that this beer is so complex that it even has sweet notes of candy.... Almost like cotton candy.... Pretty crazy....

As I'm sipping it, the complexity really comes to life as I taste not only the wheat, hops, and citrus of this brew, but also taste hints of honey, pineapple, and mango....

It has an average medium-bodied finish that has a wonderful aftertaste....

Overall, this is by far the best Lagunitas brew I've had to date.... I wish this weren't a seasonal, because it's excellent.... Definitely pick yourself up a six-pack of this brew while it lasts.... I certainly will be grabbing another.

Massive white foamy head. Beautiful lacing remains on the glass. Brew is moderately clear.

Lots of sugary pine needles. Cotton candy comes to mind. Very wheat forward and smooth scented.

YUmmm. Bitterness is mild. Carboantion is high. Piney, resinous wheat flavors.

Highly recommended! This is an often overlooked jem... Style is very unique and stands outs as being on the top.
