This is a perfect summer beer. It has the fullness of a heavier beer with a lighter hint of fruit in it. Perhaps not the most appealing winter taste but is best for summer evenings in the sun. Has a similar feel to a Magic Hat #9 but is considerably more seasonal and less versatile.

A - Pours a light lemon/straw golden with lots and lots of sediment, mmm. Decent half inch of near white head, mediocre retention, decent lacing.
S - Sweet caramel and slightly toasty malts, grassy, lemon, a little biscuity, wheaty, and slightly yeasty.
T - Grainy to grassy/lemony, biscuity and then wheaty/spiced (coriender?) at the finish. Citrus flavors linger from begining to finish.
M - Lighter bodied, very very drinkable, medium/appropriate carbonation.
O - Not really my favorite style of beer but definitely a solid/refreshing beach/lawnmower beer. Well balanced, one of the beast light pales/wheats ive had easily

Drank this out of a mini-keg on the fourth o' july.... so on-tap, right?
Pours a great looking unfiltered orange-gold. Smell is spice, wheat, pepper, with uted floral/grassy hops. Taste is much the same: wheat, spice, flowers, grass, pepper. Very easy to drink, moderately carbonated, with a light feel.
Pretty good session beer, especially in the summer time.

Pours a cloudy yellow-ish cream with incredible invited 'ick'. Yumm. Smells saison-like in a way, fresh, rural, bready; off notes muted and inviting. Taste is malty, grain, slightly bitter, creamy. Hinting notes of banana and lemon citrus. Some sustain. Mouth-fell is creamy, substantive and refreshing with fair to medium carbonation.A good solid, well constructed craft beer. I've looked at this for year never trying, but want to discover other hoppy ales more often than not so haven't reached for this until now. Yet it is a well constructed American ale derived from hefe-weizen style, and I see that shouldn't ignore.

Pours cloudy yellow color with a massive 2 finger frothy snow white head that faded slowly and left good lacing and rings sticking to the sides.
Smells of wheat, toasted grains, hay, grass, lemon, light floral hops, biscuit and yeast; pretty grainy for a summer beer and lacking the typical lemon and fruity essence.
Tastes of wheat, toasted grains, hay, grass, lemon, light floral hops, biscuit, light caramel, tea leaf, yeast, herbs and spices like coriander; it's grainy for the most part, and while the taste is decent, it is just not refreshing for a summer ale.
Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp, with a medium body, average carbonation and a malty finish.
Bland and average come to mind thinking about this beer overall. It was not bad tasting, but not very good tasting either and lacked any real summer beer excitement for me.

a hazy orange yellow with a half inch of foamy white head and good retention.
smells fresh and citrusy. scents of lemon, wheat, orange.
slightly bitter up front with a sweet malty/citrus backbone. slightly tart finish from the citrus. very tasty.
light body, high carbonation, very refreshing summer ale.
not bad for a summer beer, and definitely glad i got to try it.
