3.78/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Niec cloudy orange color with sticky lace that is in no hurry to leave.

Big herbal hoppiness up front in the nose followed by some spicy lemony (Lemon Balm) esters and a sweet finish.

The taste is sweet up front before mellowing out into a well-balanced bready/herbal/lemony finish that numbs the tongue just a touch.

Mouthfeel is refreshing but when it is baking outside I am more likely to snag something more effervescent and with a bigger hop bite.

Drinkability is above average...I'll buy again.
