look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy light orange with a foamy white head, lively carbonation

S - Wheat, bananas, bit of orange, minimal hops smell. Cloves.

T - Bananas, honey, malt with a lingering orange finish

M - Light bodied with nice carbonation. Super refreshing on a hot day.

D - I find this beer extremely drinkable, one of my go-to summer beers. I can easily throw back 2-3 after a day of yardwork in the sweltering Georgia heat. Great beer from one of my favorite breweries.

This beer reminds me a lot of the GooseIsland Summerale.
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden yellow with a decent head that is gone after 2-3 minutes.
S: Lemony, citrus smell that is pleasing to the nose. Nothing skunky here.
T: A little tart, a little biting, good carbonation. A good bier to have with BBQ or other meat products.
M: Fine. Nothing exciting.
D: This is a good session bier; could have many of these and not feel guilty.

Find youself some of this and enjoy.

pours a cloudy orange candy hue, with a nice light-caramel pillowy one-finger head that has impressive retention. Fair lacing down the glass. The color is really inviting.

aroma is mild, but definite wheat malt and citrus. candied grapefruit, orange, a hint of lemon. maybe a hint of yeast - bread dough... with more citrus.

wheat, fruit, caramel. reminds me of candied grapefruit. and those candy citrus slices. Deliciously flavorful, with a nice soft wheat backdrop and bright citrusy accents.

Mouthfeel is solid. fairly full-bodied and creamy from the wheat, with a nice slightly hoppy crispness. Reminds me of summer, in a nice, thick, popsicle sort of way.

I would drink this one all day long in the summer if i could. It reminds me of summer and california citrus. Deliciously pleasant. Not incredibly unique, but the wheat notes are beautiful and the citrus fruit accents are almost heavenly. Definitely a must try.
