Pours out light yellow and sits a shimmering gold in the glass with a small, frothy white head. Fades to a light skim with good lacings around the glass.
Bright flowery hops hit the nostrils on first whiff. Hints of tangerine, orange, nectarine, goldenrod, and kiwi float by. Hard to pick up any malts in this rather fruity and flowery bouquet.
Light citrus notes on the palate, with a mild hops presence. There are flavors of orange zest, lemon, and a bit of light pine off in the distant background. Malts are, again, at a minimum, perhaps water-cracker would be the closest comparison--very subdued.
Crisp, spring-clean mouthfeel with mild hops bitterness. This is definitely light and easy-going in the mouth, a true session beer.
I'm decently impressed. Not by any means a beer to be blown away by, but absolutely true to the style and solid beer at that. Just as they suggest, this is one to be consumed at its absolute freshest, and I'd say I've had the privilege of doing just that.
