I got this as part of a build your own 6 pack of New Glarus beers at a price of 6 for $10. 12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
This beer poured a clear, medium yellow color with a 2-finger white head that lasted several minutes. Tons of nice lacing all over the glass.
Smells like you're in a grapefruit grove.
This stuff is delicious! Superb balance between malts and hiops. Big citrusy grapefruit flavor with just a touch of pine bitterness. I'm also picking up a bit of pineapple. Sweet biscuity malt is the perfect compliment to the blend of 5 hops.
Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a light to medium body with high spritzy carbonation that makes this crisp and refreshing.
What a great session beer. Not a trace of alcohol in it. Next time I'm in Wisconsin I'll forget about the mix six and bring home a whole case of this stuff. It's that good.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.
S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.
T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.
M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.
This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.
