3.69/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a hazy, grayish yellow with a small head that quickly dissipated. This beer looks like a wheat: hazy and a strange yellowish color. Still, looks appetizing and reminds me of a saison with its appearance.

Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet. Slight hint of citrus rinds, blueberries (!) and treacly light grains. Nice hint of a low-level hop...I am thinking Saaz?

Taste 3.75: Front is spicy, with a somewhat flat malt taste. Middle brings out more of the spicy yeast taste and a big hint of perfumy citrus (it tastes better than it sounds). Finish is also somewhat flat, but is very dry and refreshing. Aftertaste features more of the blueberry, citrus and spicy yeast and fades very quickly... .

Mouthfeel 3.75: Crisp, refreshing and complementary level of carbonation.

Overall 3.75: Very good, borderline excellent beer. The blueberry taste grows on you and reminds me of a boysenberry ale that I loved that is no longer being produced. This beer is light, refreshing and entirely sessionable. Recommended...if you can find it!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a pale, straw colored yellow body beneath the pillowy pure white head which slowly dissolves to leave a scattered lacing about the glass.

Aromas consist of fresh citrus zest, straw hops, and just a touch of white pepper spice.

The flavor is similar offering fruity citrus zest, sharp grassy hops, a hint of peppery spice but also a nice grainy back bone.

Crisp, spicy, and zesty on the mouth with a medium body and carbonation wth a grainy finish.

A nice white ale with a fair amount of character. I look at this as more of a white ale or an American Witbier.
