look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque yellow with a one finger cap and solid lacing.

Aroma: citrus peel, mostly orange but a touch of key lime as well.

Flavor: Key lime peel comes through more as a tart citrus, and is balanced well by the sweet orange. Hints of coriander, over a fairly neutral grain and yeast profile.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dissipating finish.

Overall: I'm a fan, cool twist to a popular beer style.

Appearance - Poured from bottle into a standard pint glass. Appearance is a light yellowish with a fair amount of haze. Very little white head.

Smell - Quite a bit of wheat and just a little hint of citrus.

Taste - Slightly tart upfront. Not as wheaty as you would think based off of the smell. Just a hint of lime/citrus. Lingering after taste that's slightly piney.

Mouthfeel - Really light body on this one. It's almost like a sparkling water.

Overall - Not bad, but not really great either. It's pretty light and goes down fast. You could probably crush quite a few of these on a warm day.

From a bottle, pours a hazy light yellow with a fizzy white head that disappears just as fast as it arrived.

The nose is heavy wheat, lemon, hay and straw notes. Very earthy with just a faint bit of citrus. The flavor is similarly as boring and non-complex. There is this disgusting corn syrup flavor that I don't like, mostly just more wheat and lemon.

This isn't that good. I am sure it may be refreshing in the warm weather and my options are limited, but I wouldn't seek this again.
