3.78/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presented in a bottle with an interesting label with a swirly sun which immediately invites summertime feelings. The beer was poured from the bottle into a pint glass. It is dark yellow/golden and cloudy. The smell is relatively mild with some hints of sweet malts and citrus. The taste is also very mild with a little hop on the finish, but not much. Not as much wheat flavor as I was expecting, either.

This beer really shines in its drinkability. Its flavor is mild, but still interesting and it would make an excellent session beer for any number of summer events.

2.38/5  rDev -37.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A- cloudy off yellow colored body, small fingernail head that reduces to a thin discontinuous layer

N - something about this that turns me away.. I can pick up citrus but there's something else on the forefront that I can't quite put my finger on

M - light and noticeable carbonation feel

T - eh.. Same as the nose. I can pick up citrus flavor which is great but there's something that turns me off

O - this bottle was 2 months old but that's not bad.. I don't know but I wasn't a fan of this. I wouldn't cringe if offered one but I would ask what else was is available..
