Pour - straw-colored with some hints of orange. Not all that cloudy actually. This is just a bit opaque with a nice inch of pure white foam on top.
Aroma - hints of orange, lemon and tangerine along with some tangy, sweet and sour smells that might be the malt or the yeast. Not entirely sure. Mostly I'm getting citrus, which is quite nice in a summer brew.

Taste - first sip actually brings about the flavor of pears and lemons. Not all that sweet, more tangy and light on the tongue. Some mellow malt sweetness comes out but even that is pretty subtle. Nothing overpowering whatsoever in this beer, it's low ABV and lighter malt bill make this very palate friendly. The finish is very crisp and with that comes the sense of refreshment.

Overall - I really enjoyed the subtleness of this summer beer. The pear and citrus flavors were quite nice and the finish of this beer really makes it enjoyable on a warm summer day. This is a style that does well in a can as its great for just relaxing while the sun is out and it's not going to put you to sleep.

Would I buy more of it? - if I was in the market for a 12-pack to bring to a barbecue or day of playing yard games I think this would do quite nicely. I'm also guessing the price point on this is very reasonable.

3.63/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz twist-top bottle poured into a weizen glass.
0811 on the neck, "Limited Release", no info.

A - Poured with the swirled-in-bottle sediment, the beer is a cloudy golden straw color that's topped by a fluffy white head. Good retention but no lace left behind.

S - A hint of skunkiness underlines the pale malt and wheat aroma. Average potency but refreshing-smelling regardless.

T - Soft, tasty wheat with grainy pale malt and very lightly hopped citrus, hint of spice finish.

M - Smooth, soft, and medium-light-bodied, the crisp, refreshing finish is certainly welcome on this hot morning.

O - While the nose is pretty lacking, the taste makes up for it. A nice, easy-drinking summer brew with good wheat and citrus notes throughout.
