I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a decent transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell had a dry citrus cleaning grassiness about it. I guess that's the You juice but I've never had You juice, I'm only going with what I read on the beer.
The taste was the same with a nice spice added in.
The mouthfeel was light, somewhat drying but not too much. Semi - crisp and forgiving on my tongue.
Overall, other than Deschutes Summer Ale, this is one of my favorite Summer brews and is quite possibly BridgePort's best.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Leave it to the beer world to teach me about the yuzu fruit. This stuff pours a clear sunshine brass-gold topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises lemongrass, light greens, slightly-funky lemon peel (I'm assuming this is the yuzu?), and a hint of cracked wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more wheat, a breezing of biscuit, and an enhanced bit of what I'm taking for yuzu. What's more, I think I'm learning I don't enjoy the yuzu... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I can't say I was much of a fan of this. Maybe it was the yuzu, maybe it was just a mediocre beer, I'm not sure, but the result is the same regardless.

pale gold, foamy head dies down to rim. very clear, consistent flow of tiny bubbles from bottom of glass. smell is clean, grassy, bit of hops, bit of malt, sweetish. taste is fresh, thin, refreshing, thirst quenching, hit of fresh lemon, missing all the crap that bmc would normal add to stretch something like this out. not my normal fair, but really, it's a pretty decent summer beer. nice job, bridgeport.
