look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Stella Artois Chalice.

A- an incredibly light lemonade colored yellow with a medium sized frothy white head. Despite the light color is exceptionally dark and murky.

S- Lemon aid. Very sweet and sour. Citrus notes of lemon. Has a malty backbone and a slight alcohol smell.

T- Has a pale sourness while being slightly sweet. tart with a slight pale malt backbone. Has a faint bitter finish. Leaves a malty aftertaste on the tongue. There is also a slight wheatiness to the finish.

M- Medium to high carbonation. Crisp and medium bodied. The carbonation takes away from the rest of the feel.

O- Very drinkable and very refreshing. Very session-able. The perfect delicious beer for people who don't really like beer.

This is like a more lemony version of the sunset wheat and little more watery and a little more perfumey. At times I can't tell this and the sunset wheat apart, thought that hint of perfume in this one is the field mark I look for.

If I am going to mix lemonade and beer I will stick with sol or corona,
