From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):
LOOK: Hazed yellow glow, good frothing
SMELL: Herbal, mineral, citrus rind, grassy, biscuits, lime juice
TASTE: Lighter body, smooth, macerated limes, herbal, lime leaves, lemon rind, fresh grass, grainy, bitter; slightly dry, bready finish
Not your typical summer brew—rather than just pushing out the usual citrus-infused Wheat or Blonde Ale, Baxter uses both lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves on top of the lemon and lime additions. Each sip smacks of all of this. Stays drinkable and keeps our palates in check. Baxter, making the summer interesting.

Poured from the can, part of a sampler 12 pack.
An unattractive beer. Hazy yellow, with a nice size white head that left some lace. But a lot of particulate matter that sedimented on the bottom of the glass.
Strong citrus aroma, a little wheat.
Strong citrus taste, particularly lime. Not much else to taste
Metallic lime mouthfeel, harsh.
Not a beer to drink again. I poured two to see if the first can was an anomaly; it wasn't.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.
Appearance: Hazy yellow with a thick white head, no lacing on the glass.
Smell: Pine and lemons for the most part, with some hints of other citrus fruits and hops.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste bitter and sour from the lemons, with some grassy wheat notes as well.
Overall: Not bad, I have had it a couple times now, and I would drink this if it was offered to me again.

From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped on the bottom with "Penguin-04-07-14-SSA5661. " Sampled on June 18, 2014
It has a cloudy, foggy pale yellow pour with a modest white fizzy head that eventually fades down.
The thing about the aroma is that it has a kind of olive oil or buttery sensation with those pale malts and crisp, clean hops. Sometimes that's bad but in this case it seems to balance out well.
The body is light and refreshing.
The taste has a nice toasted biscuit malt character but unlike the aroma there is more of a citrus-like character kicking in. This works on a hot day like today.

A) Pours with a big white head that slowly settles leaving big bubble lacing at the edge of the glass. Unfiltered hazy yellow gold body. Semi-sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Fruity notes of orange and lemon. Grainy. Not overly aromatic.
T) Definitely pick out the spice from the first sip - Lemongrass and Kaffir lime. Other citrus notes mix in well. Noticeable hops in the in finish.
M) Light bodied. Smooth and creamy. Slightly dry in the finish.
O) A delicious brew for a hot day. The spices are a pleasant addition.
