On tap @ Founders (Grand Rapids, MI) on 4/22/10. Served in a pint glass. ABV listed as 5.4%.

Pours a hazy gold (not unlike grapefruit juice), with a thin head of bright-white foam. Retains with froth around the edges, leaving some light spotty lace behind. The aroma is floral up front that then gives way to some fruitiness (grapefruit, lime, and pineapple are all coming out) and a touch of spice. A silky undercurrent of toasted wheat fills out the nose.

The taste has a crisp sweetness to it from the wheat and seems a little more kissed by that fruit character than the aroma was but is still coming off as more on the subtle side. Light spicy bitterness adds some light zing on the tongue. Finishes with bitter grapefruit notes, spice, and good bit of dryness. The mouthfeel is lighter bodied but still very crisp and most of all easy drinking.

This was decent. Sweet, fruity, well balanced, and thristquenching, this was a pleasant little distraction to fit in between all of those bigger beers that I was imbibing on this visit.

On tap at Founder's.

A: pours a nice shade of yellow, a bit cloudy though. Small tight with head with no retention or lace.

S: Described as a citrus wheat beer. The fruit is rather mild. Light grapefruit and lemon. A touch of tangerine if you really concentrate. Beyond that your usual wheat beer aromas.

T: The fruit is there a bit more in flavor. Citric for sure with touches of sweet citrus as well. Light sweet candy malts, and a hint of wheat.

M: On the lighter side of medium,

D: Solid, I thought is was pretty drinkable, my wife really liked it.
