A-Whitish bright yellow with a thin bright white cap that held on and left spotty lace.

S-Bright lemon zing with musty yeast undertones and a touch of biscuit malt sweetness.

T-Sharp, biting lemon rind with a touch of spiciness. All of this supported by a light biscuit malt bill.

M-Medium-light body, sharp with good lingering spiciness.

D-Nice and refreshing, feels light and bouncy with a nice spicy zip and tart lemon zest. I can see how this brew won a summer contest.

Finally got to try this one after hearing about it for what seemed like forever.

Nice pour, light in color and cloudy with a nice head of white on top that reached up and capped the top of the glass. Aroma of clove, hints of banana and peppery spice tingle. Very light and as it warms a light note of almost grassy nature starts to come through. Smooth and delicous, and very mellow the first sip coasts across the tongue with ease leaving hints of clove and light spice, almost a rye like taste at the back end. Crisp and clean with a banana and light fruit note left on the tongue for a short time after the final sip.

Overall very solid. A light and very sessionable offering here. I could see easily why this would have won the competition in the middle of summer, it was soo easy to drink it was obnoxious. Well done.
