The beer is golden with a soft white head. The aroma offers grain, floral hops, light spice, citrus, grass. Light candied oranges in the flavor. Mild sweetness countered by a touch of funk. Light in body with somewhat low carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

A. This one is a bit darker than the Surette, a kind of yellow/orange color, totally cloudy, I can't see any bubbles and there is a limited foamy white head that leaves a bit of lacing behind.

S. Has a nice grassy and celery scent to it.

T/M. This is a bit plain. It is very smooth and light to medium bodied. Some carbonation and a mild tingle on the tongue. There is a mild grape malt taste and a hint of hoppy bite. A very mild diacetyl sourness.

O. It's good, but in a plain way, if that makes any sense. Definitely not worth the price tag (in NYC, $13 for a 12.7 ounce bottle), but if you can find it for a more reasonable price it's definitely a nice sitting-outside kind of beer.
