Pours a clear light orange with big fluffy white head, mess of lace sticking. Smell: spicy, floral, honey bread. Taste: bready, apricot, spicy and herbal with sweet orange peel note. Light-plus bodied and quite creamy. Similar color scheme as Hotter than Helles, which was a good beer! This is fine in a 20-years-ago-craft kind of way.

Pours a nice gold with a 1 finger head that quickly disapates. Taste is wheat, lemon and some sweetness. Goes down easy. Very nice, light offering.

Appearance: The beer has a large off-white head with very good retention. The body is a medium shade of gold with only a slight haze through the glass.

Aroma: The beer has a flowery aroma.

Taste: Up front there area lot of flowers and herbs. It has a bit of a lemon zest flavor mixed with an array of unidentifiable flowers. There is a light bit of honey sweetness at the end.

Mouthfeel: The beer is light and refreshing with a dry and effervescent finish.

Overall: This would make for a good Summertime beer. It isn't strong enough on its own to overpower a meal but it does a decent job of accompanying one. The beer has a nice floral quality which works elegantly well with the soft yet dry finish. I would recommend this beer to others and I could see myself enjoying it on a picnic.
