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.

750ml growler. Poured into a snifter 11/19/2014.

A- Beautiful hazy deep yellow body, one finger white head with nice retention time, nice film and collar; good lacing rings as well. [4.25]

S- Toasted grain and a ton of Galaxy hop goodness. Citrus, grapefruit, mango, tropical fruit. This isn't particularly complex, but it showcases the pure essence of the Galaxy hops quite well here. If you're a Galaxy hop fan, you're in for a treat. [4]

F- As in the nose, just the right amount of grainy sweetness to balance out all the aromatic hop flavours. Tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit abounds. Nice sharpness to it as well. The base beer seems to essentially be a blank canvas for the hops here; I see why Tree House is trying all kinds of single hops with this base beer. Very nice base beer with delicious hop aromas. [4.5]

M- Medium bodied, soft, creamy with the right amount of carbonation. Very refreshing and crushable at 3.9%. How did they pack all this flavour into a 3.9% ABV beer and not have it feeling thin? Very nice work. [4.25]

O- This is very tasty, drinkable and flavourful. This is one of the best tasting beers that I've had below 4% ABV. Colour me a Tree House fan, they certainly do know what they're doing in Monson, MA. [4.25]
