4.1/5  rDev +30.2%

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, cloudy

Smell: lemon rind and grain

Taste: lemon juice, grain, sweet wheat, and perhaps a touch of ginger

Mouthfeel: sweet, light body, high carbonation

Overall: Very lemony, but wow what a sessionable beer. Found myself having a few of these over the holiday weekend. Goes down way to easy and is an improvement on several of Abita's other seasonal beers. Very good for the style.

Probably gonna hate this, but picked it up as part of a mixed sixer, so what the hell?

Pours a slightly hazed straw color with 3+ fingers of pearl colored head. Good lacing & above average head retention

S: Lemon & grassiness, plus perfumy notes

T: Slight lemon taste, grassiness & a bit of breadynesss up front. Light lemon notes, faint grainy notes as this warms. Finishes lemony, grainy & grassy

MF: Light bodied, fairly assertive carbonation

Easy to drink as a thrist quencher, but doesn't really hold my interest flavor-wise. Every once in a while these guys one I like, this is not one of them

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/whitish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very lemony. Taste is slightly tart, lots of lemons, just a touch of wheat, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent summertime beer.

2.85/5  rDev -9.5%

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of some faint lemony notes and not much else.

Tastes of some faint lemon and wheat. Lemon notes lead off going into some slightly sharp wheat notes. A bit of sweetness comes in the middle.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is another mediocre American style wheat beer that doesn't deserve any attention.
