What can I say...I'm a sucker for pale wheat ales and this is a good one.

Pours a hazy bright orange. Nice big white fluffy head. Great retention/lace. Looks like summer.

Smells of orange peel, citrus, little banana.

Taste is a nice orange citrus fruit flavor up front followed by a little sweet banana flavor that lingers. Finishes with just the right touch of hops to make it refreshing.

Nice creamy mouthfeel. Could easily pound a few of these out on the back porch doing some grilling.

Overall, this is one of my favorite summer seasonals, and one I will keep coming back to.

This ale embodies summer in every facet. The pour is a hazy pale golden hue with a fluffy white head that leaves a nice film and some lacing. The nose is a refreshing blend of citrus (mostly oranges) and light malts and subdued hops. The mouth is light and easy, definitely something you could knock back a sixer of and not be full. The flavor is delicious and very light and refreshing. There is a very natural citrus flavor along with a slight malt finish. It is actually surprising that the abv is as high as it is given how smooth and light this drinks. Definitely a beer to enjoy sprawled by the pool or on the beach. Refreshing is the best I can say.
