Bottle to Lawson's sniffer
A: it is a orangey honey color that is very cloudy with a few hope floaters and a thick white head that goes away quickly
S: it smells like tropical fruit bomb there is melon and it has a sweetness that I might not go to if it wasn't in the name but kiwi it's not quite citrusy and there is no malt.
T: there is a lot of fresh hop flavors it's very crisp it's grassy and though I don't like term like a farm house ale. There is some citrusy notes that stay there all the way through the finish which is full of hop bitterness
M: it is fairly smooth, very oily and very thin. It is crisp and fairly drinkable which I like as most lagers are too flat for me this resembles an ipa in feel but staying true to a lager
O:I liked this beer a lot and I usually hate lagers but this has many ipa qualities which is a huge benefit for me. It is pretty tastey looks, smells great and had a real good mouthfeel not just standard local fair a really good beer and it reps mass well.

A - Strong haze on a bright apricot wheat body. Pure white, fine bubbled head has nice retention and awesome lace.
S - Light nose, but what's there is really nice. Lemon pith, parsley, white bread, and old wood tables.
T - Bread crust forward flavor profile with lemon zest and light parsley highlights. Touch of tangerine in the center.
M - Super smooth, slightly slick, medium frame.
O - Nice, smooth, well integrated, and easy drinking. Not sure if it's quite top 250 material though.
