3.48/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Lawson's Finest Liquids glass.

The color is a slightly cloudy gold with a finger foamy off-white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.

The smell is wheaty with some fruit aroma up front in the nose with some elder berries and a touch of light toast in the far background.

The taste is fruity with more of a citrus flavor then expected. Filled with berry flavor through most of this flavor this fly off the in the back like the slight wheat, and bready flavor but they come and go. There is a slight citrus flavor that pushes out at the end as well past the berries and gives a juice-like flavor.

The feel of this beer is light a pretty drinkable. A good summer beer it has some all the hallmarks of something that is light enough to have on a hot day and is full of some nice flavor.
