3.2/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours slightly hazy golden with an abundant white head that dissipates. Carbonation does not appear to be abundant. Aromas of wheat and citrus are present in the smell. There isn't much spice in the smell if it is detectable at all. The citrus flavor melds well with the flavors of the wheat. The peppery nature of the grains of paradise cuts in nicely to help balance the flavors of this beer. The mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. It's very refreshing now that temperatures have reached the 80's here in Louisiana. It will only become more refreshing as the temperatures climb. Overall, this is a good beer that is crisp and refreshing. It serves its purpose in many ways and I feel it does it well.
