unfairly low ratings for this beer here. i admit, a lot of their strong and belgian styles have been lackluster, but this is a pretty good summer ale, certainly a good one to buy a case of in a box state like PA for hot weather mass consumption. pale blonde in color, bubbly, and emitting aromas of orange peel and extremely lightly toasted barley. the flavor is quite simple and straightforward, with a real soft grain front end and then a clean, slightly citrusy balanced finish, crispy clean drinking, supremely refreshing, and with the low abv, its a good summer slammer right from the bottle. i think it probably deserves a little more credit than it has on here, i mean, there are no off flavors, and the feel is great. i guess folks may be looking for a bit more hop character, or even just more robust flavors throughout, but this beer is for the light beer drinker looking to go craft. i think it works, and aside from being awfully light, I've got no real critiques. i like the biscuity front end and the hint of orange zest as it closes out.

A very good summer Beer, lite and refreshing. Will not fill you up or weigh you down. My first choice in the summer months. If you see it grab a six and enjoy.

will not go over the flavors as it seems to have been done by other already. Good luck finding it at least in hunterdon county are in NJ seems to be on and off with availability in the summer months, sells out quick.
