Pours a cloudy, attractive gold color with a 2 finger, dense bright white head. Great looking.

The aroma is light and fresh with notes of grapefruit and tangerine, though not too sweet.

The flavor follow the smell with well-balanced, light and fresh citrus and tangerine flavors with a hint of florals brought on by a semi-sweet light malt base. The finish is clean with orange notes.

Feel is soft with a light effervescence and very low bitterness.

This is just a fantastic, unpretentious beer that is masterfully crafted with balance in mind. It should be an award winner IMO.
