This was a real surprise. Pours a pale golden, decent head but dissipates quickly. Smells of tropical fruit, wild honey. Tastes of mango, melon, lemon, sweet tea, only the slightest bitter hops on the end. Mouthfeel was spot on. Just the right amount of carbonation, perfect summer beer. Very impressed, good on ya GSB.

Took this one to go after hearing nice things. Poured with vigor. Pure white head. Good lacing. Beautiful clean aroma. Soft full and delicate. Subtle grass and fruit. Perfecrt balance in taste. Great hop finish. A bit chalky in the end but otherwise great. Light tart and refreshing. Overall a solid beer and very well done.

Had on tap at finney's on fire island. Brew arrived with a clear gokden color and a thin frothy white head. Really nice sweetness. Very tasty smelling. Almost a bit of lavender in the smell. Taste is equally impressive. Again nice sweetness, malt heavy. Finishes a tad nitter. Smooth and easy to drink.
