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.
