Picked this up last week and wondered how much wheat was in this. This poured golden and was perfectly clear but this reminded me of the Southern Tier Hop Sun in its taste and mouthfeel. Since that is one of my favorite go-to beers when the weather warms up, I also "warmed up" to this pretty quickly.

Nice head and aroma to this and lots of hops could be smelled as soon as I opened the bottle up. Nothing heavy for the senses as there was lots of pine and lemon to go with the up-front sweetness. Only the pine lingered in the aftertaste which was long-lasting but never too strong. This had a nice, crisp mouthfeel to it and the carbonation enhanced the flavors without being too up-front.

I couldn't taste any alcohol to this beer even though it certainly is there. That's the strength of this brew, without a doubt. It went down so easily but never did it feel weak or watered down. I'm not sure how it was pulled off but this is a warm-weather beer that doesn't have the weakness that the "lawnmower beers" have and everyone should get a little something every now and then - even if it comes from a bottle such as this!
