Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is quite intense on spices but it's not too pungent. Some sweet wheat malt and vanilla in the background. Taste is also quite spicy but the flavors blend very well together. Overall leans toward the sweet side but it's really mellow. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate but also quite effervescent. It's a great example of the style with it's nice wheat and vanilla sweetness, smooth mouthfeel and tasty spices.

Poured from a can dated APR/28/16 (4 months old),into a Funky Buddha snifter.

Thin,soapy,white head,that dissolves fast.Light gold in color,with some floaties.Light carbonation.

On the nose I get yeast,sweet breads,and sweet malts.All of the aromas I am getting are very bright.Also getting a healthy dose of honey notes in the nose.

The palate follows the nose,yeast,sweet bread,and sweet malts.The overall flavor of this beer is SWEET.

Medium / thin body,with a medium dry finish

This is a pretty good beer.They didn't get very creative on this one,and that isn't necessarily a bad thing.Very smooth,and drinkable beer.

-can to tulip. canned 07.06.16. consumed 11.28.16.

A: Golden yellow with a quick paced effervesce. Spongey and spotty chalk white head is thin and whispy and quick to dissipate leaving little to no dressing.

S: Sour lemon and sour oranges on the nose, sunflower seeds and daffodil flowery scent.

T: Flavor was dry and flowery orange, lemon grind is fresh and wet, with a some fresh flowery hops. Lightly tart, lemony and spicy, with some light corriander, bread and tequila lime.

M: Crisp seltzer like carbonation makes things lively on the tongue, with a light and creamy body.

O: Crisp, tart and lemony, good to style, flavorful worth a check. can appreciate.

Good, but would prefer that it taste strIngersoll, same taste just more intense. But since I can get it anywhere almost it's definitely welcome in my fridge.

Bright golden with orange highlights, short lasting white head with small amounts of lacing. Orange, banana and clove-typical for this style of beer on the nose. Citrus; lemon peel and manadarin orange, clove, faint bubblegum. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, expecting that lighter, fluffiness feel.
