The perfect cure for a summer heat wave. Bought a case the other week. Pours a hazy copper yellow. Nice white head that lingers slightly. Smells of wheat and a lemon citrus character. Hops are evident but tucked away in the background. Tastes of the same vein in that lemon & wheat dominate. Does have a slight puckering but the carbonation gently displays the flavors. This one is an extremely drinkable ale in the prime of summer. Not sure how it would hold up in other months but it's a really good BBQ brew.

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
