L: Pours slightly hazy pale gold under a 1” white foam collar that slowly recedes. S: Light fruit and citrus, palte malt. T: Citrus, slightly sweet start with a dry finish, some light biscuit. F: Medium to medium light body, soft palate. O: This is brewed with spice but there is not a lot of spice character in this beer. Very drinkable.

This is a mild one, for those who enjoy saisons and summery wheats.

I got it on a great sale which made it a bargain. Totally drinkable. Wouldn't seek it out, but I'm glad I grabbed it from the fridge tonight to pair with slightly spicy barbequed shrimp (cooked in butter, Old Bay, Worchestershire sauce, and lemon juice). They played very nicely together.

08/07/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This is one of those beers that is so smooth on the tongue you don't get the benefit of the cold temperature. The glass was cold...there was condensation & all...but the creaminess hushed it all. As for flavor it's just fine. Great finish & actually leaves a hint of the crisp as it fads away. Well done.
