Tough to review this one. Right off the bat I'll say, I really like this beer.
The appearance is a cloudy but bright golden orange color. I know it says unfiltered on the bottle, but I felt the cloudyness was a bit over done. I'm in the land of Keller/Zwickel biers and they arent cloudy.
The taste is great! Very floral and just a slight citrus zest to it. Perfect perfect perfect for this time of year. The malt backbone is subtle and slightly sweet.
The mouthfeel is also where point wise, I gotta knock it down. It's slightly full and slick. It should be crisp. It's not.
Overall, I know I said some bad things about this beer, but I love it. Stylistically, if it were an ale, it would be a different story but since it's a keller bier, it had to knock it. But I love it. It's just starting to warm up and it goes great with the first two BBQ's I've had this year. Really reminds me of a lighter maibock.
