Had on tap at Fremont. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head with nice lacing.

S: A good amount of wheat as one would expect mixed with some light citrus, mostly lemon and lemon rind.

T: Rather similar to the aroma with a heavy dose of wheat mixed with some fresh citrus/lemon and light grainy malt.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: An easy drinking pale wheat ale, will be nice in the summer months.

Served in 12oz tulip. Poured a cloudy, hazy golden yellow color with a very thin cap of white head that had OK retention, and very light lacing.

The aroma was very bright, with lots of good, earthy grains, and a healthy dose of citrusy hops. The flavor profile was similar, just bolder and more well-defined. Lots of good wheat, and the hops were a contrasted nicely, without being overpowering.

The body was light, clean and crisp, with a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was very good, I'd more of these, if Fremont would send them North. Overall, a very nice beer, another example of why Fremont is one of the leading breweries in the PNW.

On tap on board an Argosy boat tooling around Puget Sound. Pours a hazy lemon yellow w/ a thin white head.

Aroma is lemon zest and some vague spice notes.

Taste is clean, soft what malt, lemony citrus. Just a touch of acidity.

Mouthfeel is soft and light, crisp finish.

Overall a refreshing, drinkable summer beer.
