3.4/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy straw color. White head.
Aroma: Some yeast and malt. Citrus.
Taste: Pretty average wheat beer flavor. Good amount of malt with a little bit of citrus hop at the end. Bready.
Mouthfeel: Actually pretty thick/full bodied. Still drinkable. Slightly low carbonation.
Final Thoughts: Oh the dreaded 'Summer Seasonal'. Wish breweries would get a little more creative with this. Basically an average wheat beer. If that's your thing then go for it, if not then try their Boston Lager of something a little more robust.
Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Golden orange sunset transparency, sliver of head, mild random carbonation visible, TONS of lacing.
S: Hops forward, slight spice or grain presence.
T: Mellowed hops, slight orange.
M: Light body, light-medium carbonation. Really pleasant and refreshing.
O: Love it. Wondering if the mellowed hops on draft turns into A LOT of hops out of the bottle. If not, this will most definitely be in the summer rotation with Dos Equis and Troegs Sunshine Pils.
Serving type: on-tap
