Reviewed from detailed notes after filling a growler at Hill Farmstead on 4/6/2013. Poured into a Weizen glass at low altitude in upstate NY the following day, 4/7/2013.

A: Pours a hazy light orange-yellow with a small stark-white head. No visible particles, nice lacing and a good looking beer overall.

S: Citrus and tropical fruit notes up front with sweet caramel malt notes in the background. Not particularly complex, but smells clean and juicy -- generally appealing.

T: Grapefruit citrus notes up front give way to tropical fruit sweetness and tanginess. The water has a distinctive mineral quality and the bitterness lingers for a while on the finish, but not so much as to overwhelm the balance. Fits the style nicely.

M: Medium-bodied with an appropriate level of carbonation. Wet and quite refreshing in combination with the tropical fruit and citrus flavors noted above.

O: Clean flavors that highlight a single hop. Very refreshing and would love to drink this in hot weather if it were readily available (alas).
