3.91/5 rDev +9.5%
Appearance: Deep gold/amber. Foamy off-white head with LOTS of effervescence. Lacing down the sides of glass with a thin white cap of retention.
Aroma: Very fruity with a slight hop aroma. Very nice.
Taste: Tart & spicy, salty, clean. Reminds me of Columbus Brewing Company's Summer Teeth Kellerbier; but filtered, with lots of bubbles, and not as slick. Hints of apple and pear.
Mouthfeel: Mid-to-light weight, very astringent and clean.
Overall: Light, fruity, astringent. Well-carbonated (but not overly so). A well-balanced craft summer ale. Would buy again.

3.71/5 rDev +3.9%
Serving Type: 355 mL bottle poured into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass.
Appearance: Fizzy head dissipating to a light haze with minimal lacing. Clear, pale golden color.
Smell: Full cereal malt aroma with slight citrus and resin of hops.
Taste: Malty bread flavor with gentle underlying citrus rind from hops and a slight (and pleasant) tendency towards saltiness. Semidry finish.
Mouthfeel: Clean, slightly creamy. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Light and refreshing, but complex enough to be a more enjoyable summer seasonal, especially with its slightly savory, salty flavors.
