A 12 oz bottle purchased at Capone's. Seem's perfect for a mid-August day.

A: The ale is indeed pale, looking like a hefe weizen with a slightly lessened turbidity. Light shone through the glass reveals a deep yellow color, burnt cornbread-like. The head has laced a few patches in the glass.

S: Light and airy, the beer has a low level of sweet tartness that makes the mouth water in anticipation. The tartness has some citrus (fruit, not hop) notes floating around too.

T: A spectrum of flavors strike the palate on first sip. Orange peel and lemon sweetness highlight the first. They are followed by a solid wheat and malt body, thick but restrained enough to allow the fruits to shine through. As I sip this, it conjures up memories of the St. Bernardus witbier, refreshing with a slight tartness and some pepper.

M: The mouthfeel is light but full of flavors, citrusy with a peppery bite. Solid beer, I'd love to try it out of one of those 5L kegs.

D: Easy to drink, this is a great summer ale. The light flavor will not overwhelm the palate and its tartness makes you go back for more.
