3.6/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: The beer is hazy light pale yellow in color (almost like a Berliner Weissbier) and has some fine particles floating in suspension near the bottom and no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light aromas of peppery spices in the nose along with some hints of lemon citrus.
T: Like the smell, the taste has initial flavors of lemon citrus and is followed by hints of peppery spices that linger into the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn't seem to fit into any particular style-it is more like a witbier ans less like a Belgian IPA.

Pours a murky dark straw color with a half inch white foam head. Dissipates quickly. Leaves a small amount of lacing. Very interesting color, actually.
Aroma is grassy, with a little bit of wheat and a squeeze of lemon. A few other tropical fruits. A hint of spices.
Wheat up front, followed by some floral hops and fresh squeezed lemon. A little bit more of the spices that were found in the nose. A little bit of yeast. Aftertaste leaves a very pleasant but subtle lemon zest on the tongue. A nice touch.
Mouth is light. Very crisp, smooth and refreshing. Strongly recommended on a humid summer day.
Overall, much better than the ratings indicated. Very refreshing. Not normally a bughe fan of Belgian IPAs, but this one hits the spot. The balance of lemon and grassiness is sensational. Chalk this one up as a very pleasant surprise.
