Poured from a 12oz. can into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

The color is hazy yellow with some orange highlights and two fingers of foamy white head that leaves a thick white film on the glass.

The smell is piney with the hops being the first thing that is detectable. There is a pithy aroma of citrus fruits in the nose as well with slight grapefruit and a touch of lime. There is a sweetness coming off the aroma that stays in the nose for a moment like an aftertaste. A nice bouquet of floral hops here in the nose.

The taste is hoppy but subtle and lets the fruity flavor takes the wheel as you are guided into a lemon flavor that pops at the first turn then leads into a earthy character that has some nice malt character letting things balance slightly as mellow hops flavor comes back into frame to meet you on the way out at the end. There even some berry flavors that come out as you sip this beer, light green grape flavor skirts the edges till you dig deeper into this beer and they appear.

The feel of this beer is medium to light with a really thirst quenching body that goes down easy. This is fantastic, a session ale with an ABV lower than 5% but still manages to give up the good with flavor and fantastic feel.
