look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into an imperial pint glass

A: Extremely cloudy gold, like a glass of orange-juice. Can't see your hand through it. The head dissipates quickly leaving small white lacing on the side.

S: Sweet, fruity: citrus and mango

T: Really weird, but not bad. Kind of like the bastard love child of a fruit smoothie and a beer. Crisp, extreme fruit presence between citrus orange notes and semi-bitter tones. A bit of sweetness, but not enough to note

M: Moderate carbonation. Rather thick, surprisingly so for a beer of this color. Not oily, but definitely not runny.

O: Archetypal summer beer. Delicious, crisp, refreshing; the fruit doesn't hurt. It's a bit strong for a summer ale, but it's not so chuggable as to make an issue out of it. Pool, grill, beach: this beer is a good friend in these situations.

3.54/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: The color of this beer is medium light with a pretty cloudy look and a thin white head.

Smell: There is not much of a smell besides a faint wheat aroma that is pleasant but underwhelming, and just a hint of fruit.

Taste: There is a very faint bitterness balanced out by wheat and very mild fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Slight carbonation with an otherwise smooth mouthfeel.

Serving type: on-tap
