3.25/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Got this from the brewery itself.

A: Pours a hazy, straw yellow body with a small, white head with pretty low retention and some lacing along the glass, but nothing too impressive.

S: A fruity, menthol smell (most likely from some diacetyl) with some slight, lemon undertones.

T: A juniper tasting beer with a slight, lemon taste. Lemon was more evident in the aftertaste. A slight, sweet, honey malt taste with some additional cardamom aftertaste.

M: A pretty light bodied, slightly thin, mouthfeel with a crisp, slightly dry finish.

D: A decent mouthfeel and taste combination. A decent, light, summer beer overall that seems nice to have on a nice, hot, summer day.

I had this on-tap at Defiant Brewing Company in Pearl River, NY. It came in a 10ish ounce mug.
Appearance: The body is a cloudy yellow color. The head is white, small, no retention or lacing.
Smell: The aromas are banana, clove and tobacco.
Taste: The flavors are banana, clove and juniper leaves.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is edgy.
Drinkability: This is a great beer.
Don't drink and review.
