probably the best ballpark beer I've ever had. Enough taste to move it out of the massprolag catagory, but also easy drinkin with nice citrus notes and a solid hop background.
Love this beer.
First sip is sweet, but the aftertaste brings out the sourness of the fruit. The beer really morphs in your mouth. There's a little malt profile there to balance things out, but this beer is really dam^ tasty.
Could make this a lawnmower staple.
this really lives up to the name as it's light enough for summer, malty enough for fall, and hoppy enough for spring... would like to try this on tap.

12oz single purchased from Wegman's in Collegeville, PA. BB date of June '14. Appropriately (or inappropriately) poured into an '09 NY Yankees World Series Champions pint glass.
A-crisp, clear golden/orangish color. ton of bubbles. solid finger of white foam, decent retention. looks refreshing and tasty. good amount of lacing left on the glass.
S-citrus. some bready notes. I don't detect a whole lot. no hop aroma.
T-toasted flavor. some caramel malts. lemony/sour finish
M-light bodied. little carbonation-which is strange given the continuous bubbles rising. very smooth, creamy texture.
O-easy to drink. low ABV. smooth and refreshing. These factors make this a very drinkable ale. however...there is nothing that makes it stand out. definitely wont satisfy those looking for the big hop flavor. not a favorite, but could see myself putting another back as I'm grilling after work.
