4.5/5 rDev +20%
Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: 1/2 inch head, high carbonation, straw yellow in color, clear
Smell: honey, lemon, and fresh grass
Taste: lemon, big time floral flavors--not hoppy floral, but floral, light grain
Mouthfeel: sweet with slightly bitter backbone, high carbonation, light bodied
Overall: I graded this to style and frankly this blows away most of the beers in the style. If not to style, I would still give this over a 4. This is one of the best Jack's Abbey brews. Floral, clean, and complex for the style. Could easily throw back several of these.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Illegible bottling date.
A: Pours a slightly hazy looking light pale yellowish gold with a small white head on top.
S: The wheat certainly comes through in the aroma with a background of coriander and other spicing.
T: As with the aroma wheat is the forefront of this beer. Solid bready flavor with just a touch of spicing. Mild citrusy fruit flavor. Digging the subtle spice in this as it doesnt overpower the lager qualities.
M: Light body with low carbonation. Something you can easily knock back a couple of on a warm summer day.
Overall a very enjoyable summer beer with a perfect balance between wheat, spice and beer. Pick one up.

Slightly hazy yellow with huge white foamy head. On the first pour it was almost transparent but the second pour dumped all the yeast sediment rendering it mostly opaque. The head sticks around for the entire ride but lacing is minimal.
I can smell a lot of citrus and spicyness, a lot like a Belgian witbeer. Oh this is really good - not as much spice as in the nose but I can definitely taste orange in there. A lot of floral notes as well. Goes down really smooth and it’s as refreshing as a hefeweizen with all the added crispness and cleanliness of a lager. After it warms up a bit I can taste the lemongrass in it as well, but I’d rather drink this one cold – it’s definitely a summer beer.

Poured from a .5 liter bottle into a pilsener- pours a very light, hazy, yellow strawy color with two fingers of bubbly head, decent retention, minimal lacing. Visible effervescence.
Smells of wheat and garden herbs as strange as it sounds. Lovely but not very strong.
Taste is great. I don't like wheat beers as a general rule but this one is an exception- it's incredibly well balanced between light, round wheat notes and barely noticeable but present hop and herb overtones. Not a blast of wheat sweetness as per usual.
Excellent feel- very light body with moderate to full carbonation. Slightly sweet finish but as I said before, very well balanced and incredibly refreshing. Instead of buying a six-pack of UFO or any other cheap hefeweizen for that "summer beer" vibe, pick up a few bottles of Leisure Time and you'll be much happier.

S: Nice floral coriander and orange peel with slight fresh lemongrass, more citrus than anything.
L: Hazy, golden yellow with creamy, carbonated white head with solid retention. Solid lacing.
T: Clean, slightly wheat taste with a medium low citrus and earthy flavors. Low bitterness with a very clean, slightly doughy finish. Any bitterness from the coriander or chamomile.
M: Light bodied, medium low carbonation.
Solid stuff. Perfect amount of spices and fruit, melds well with the wheat. Could use a bit more carbonation for that "refreshment" aspect. But solid overall and quite unique.
