Thanks to JLindros for sharing this. Filled yesterday at tree house.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy light straw hue with a good half finger white head that leaves nice creamy blanket and spotty lacing. Quite nice.

S - Aromas of galaxy galore here with nice pineapple and tropical notes, sweet malts, light resinous hops, good light wet hop notes, incredibly aromatic and in your face.

T - Taste is much more bready than on the nose, light malts, solid bitter lingering finish, light tropical notes, pineapple, faint mango, quite nice. No alcohol, obviously, dry.

M - Mouthfeel is rather underwhelming, crisp carbonation, light dry bitter finish. Bit thin though.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, love the tropical notes and the explosive nose. An improvement on the regular version.

A-Pours a milky yellow color. Almost like pineapple juice. A strong pour and a swirl gives life to a thick, fluffy, bleached head. Head leaves circular lacing scars along my glass.

S-Galaxy hops have a very distinct aroma and this brew obviously is loaded with that enticing smell. Citrus and pineapple and guava. Some leaves and wet earth. A juicy, bright nose thanks to Galaxy hops and great brewers.

T-The flavor has more bitter bite than I was anticipating and I love that. Packs a punch for a super-low ABV beer. The hops are earthy yet still maintain much of their tropical fruit essence here. Very zesty and tangy in its hoppiness. I get noticeable white bread and some hay as well. Pineapples and definite guava.

M-Coming in at a diminutive 3.9% ABV, this beer is obviously an upgrade over water for continuous drinking. Sneaky bitterness. Well carbonated. Finishes dry. Pleasing.

O-I love Tree House, I love Galaxy hops and I love low ABV hop bombs. This little beaut is further proof that Tree House is one of the best in the business.

The beer comes in a light hazy golden color.

The aroma is extremely Galaxy. Light sugary citrus, lemon, dry grape, passionfruit, kiwi, along with some grainy malt.

The flavor follows with that grainy wheat throughout with the Galaxy being the showcase. The tropical notes linger around with a wonderfully light bitter dry finish.

I was really surprised by how much flavor this beer had at under 4%.

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB WIlli Becher glass pours with a 3/4" white head, over the cloudy orangey amber brew. Head is promptly down to an uneven froth, strong around the edges, with lasting lace. Aroma is citrus with a bit of skanky earthiness, in a good way.

Taste follows the nose, citrus from start to finish, with earthiness also throughout, and a tart close. Slight numbness with lingering citrus after the swallow. Mouthfeel is way soft and smooth, with oh-so easy drinkability. Hello, session brew, glad to know you.

Filled Thursday at the brewery, shared with rudzud on Friday.

Filled yesterday at the brewery. Nice lighter creamy head covering, decent lacing, very hazy blond almost banana yellow color.

Nose is great, fresh hop, nice kiwi hop with fruity aromas, bit of that grassy slight earthy new Zealand terrior, floral light leafy. But with all that comes the pungent citrus slight tropical fruit galaxy hops, a musty dank resin and bit of passion fruit and guava like, great combination of hops. Very little malt bit of touch of blond grainy malt.

Taste starts a little light, light blond malt with little doughy grain like, little watery malt feel. Then great hops though, nice kiwi again, fruity, more grassy slight leafy terrior again, then into tropical fruit and resin, dank musty resin, quite dank, light guava and papaya, no real citrus though, mild passion fruit. Mild to fair overall bitterness with more dry grassy like feel than juicy. Finish is dry, fair bitterness, little watery still, nice kiwi terrior and fruity hops lingering.

Mouth is lighter bod, little watery feeling, decent carb.

Overall very nice but little watery feel too really backup the hops, but the hops are awesome.
