A - pours bright yellow with a big, dense, white head that has good retention.

S - heavy lemon zest, faint straw

T - straw, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest

M - light to medium bodied, smooth, very crisp

This is a light, easy to drink beer. It has a heavy citrusy character and the carbonation is a bit heavy, but overall it's not bad.

Served from tap in to a shaker. Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a half finger amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and very subtle fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this one wasn't too bad with all of the usual aspects o e would expect, but sadly it didn't really do much more than that for me. It could have used a little more of a sweet profile to help balance out the earthy notes going one. Still not too bad for a nice sunny day out.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a whiteish/yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, some citrus. Taste is crisp, spices, wheat, lemons, mild but very refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

A new one for me, not really sure how long this one had been out, but looked like a nice was to start off the night. Served in a pint glass, and consumed on 02/09/2010.
 
The pour was good for the style. Very light, pale golden in color with a good bit of visible carbonation that could be seen streaming up toward the surface of the glass. Really nice little head of white foam forms on top and settles down gently into a great little head. Aroma is very light, very bright with a nice touch of lemon and citrus on the nose. Light, very bright, crisp and clean feel here. Almost sparkling at times. Very, very light. Flavor fades quickly on me though as light grains, and a light touch of citrus are really all that remains after just a few moments and the very light and dry final sips seem to pull it all together quite nicely.
 
Overall while not being the most terribly interesting thing in the world, it was enjoyable and the purpose and follow through were both definitely there. I could see myself having this one a couple times on a warm day.

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!
