Perfection. Nice funky, citrus nose on it. You definitely get the white wine barrel taste in this beer with a hint of lemon peel.

The look was crisp, gold, and refreshing. The aroma was fruity with orange being the most potent. The taste was great, it was refreshing and light. Overall a great beer that I would definitely go buy
