Fairly complex beer among the crisp & clean smorgasboard of your standard summer brews.
Very slightly hazy with a spritely white, two-finger head. Aroma slighly tangy, reminding me of witbier. Lemon & oats is my first impression of taste, before a very slightly grainy mouthfeel rolls a round, blunt flavor over and around the sides of my tongue. Finish is maybe a little more sticky than I'd wish for; like an aged, squashed citrus fruit peel.
Overall summary: Pretty hearty for a summer beer, but pretty refreshing, too.
