4.11/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. brown bottle. Has Date of Birth printed on bottle.

A: Pours clear golden yellow. Large white foamy head. Good retention and decent lacing.

S: Wheat, floral hops, crisp citrus and a little malt sweetness. Surprisingly hoppy aroma.

T/M: Crisp medium bodied. Wheat, bitter hops, citric. Finishes between a nice malt
sweetness and more of that dry bitter hop taste. Has a lot going on here, especially for a
summer seasonal.

O: Very good. Borderline excellent summer ale. Has both a great taste and easy drinkability.
Which is great because many summer seasonal beers lack in the taste department.
The wheat, hops and malt work well together with no specific ingredient being noticeably
dominant.

Cheers!!

3.58/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- pours a clear pale straw color with a small foamy white head that retains nicely, leaving behind some nice lacing

S- crisp wheat with some toasted malt, fruity hops with berry notes, herbal notes with some lemon grass, slightly bready finish

T- citrusy hop flavor up front with an emphasis on lemon, clean toasty malt with slight sweet bready flavors, crisp wheat on the finish with an herbal hop linger

M- medium body with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crop dry finish

O- simply profiled, yet well balanced and drinkable. A worthy option for those hp summer days
