Poured bottle into glass. 7.5 % abv

Appearance- Pours a translucent golden yellow with a lively two finger head that hangs around.

Smell- Ripe orange along with grapefruit citrus hints. Sweet bready malt as well.

Taste- A fresh toasted biscuit malt flavor arrives and quickly develops into a strong wheat character. This wheat flavor blends along nicely with the citric hop bitterness as the two tastes co-mingle with each other. This wheat/hop taste pairing of this beer is interesting and different to me. Very easy drinking.

Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light and thin for the vibrant taste and 7.5 percent abv. Well done.

Overall- A very interesting and delicious beer that is both wheaty and hoppy. A top among the APWA style for sure. As my first Lagunitas beer I was impressed. A must try for those seeking a tasty and potent warm weather brew.
