Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - Crystal clear, pale yellow body with a thin white head.

S - Citrus, hay, and wildflowers.

T - Builds off of the nose, but much more pleasantly intense. Lemon and orange flavors meld with an almost strawberry-like sweetness from the wheat. A final touch of oniony dankness and more citrus leave the taste buds satisfied.

M - Fairly heavy and glutinous with a slight carbonation bite.

O - A very tasty beer that has that good ol' Lagunitas hop character. However, something about this beer, maybe the mild carbonation, really struck me as being similar to homebrews I have tried. Nonetheless, a great summertime compromise between fruity hops and fruity wheat.
