On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a clear medium straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. Must be filtered. There was Goid retention and lacing.

The smell featured light esters and a touch of coriander.

The taste was likewise light in the esters department with a bit of spice and herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was very light for the style and lacked the expected chew.

Overall a light easy drinking ale, but not do much a wit in the traditional sense.

Served on-tap at The Pony Bar (Hell's Kitchen) in New York, NY

A: Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy and sudsy white head that slowly reduces to a large medium thick film surrounded by a very thin film and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of pale malts with some hints of light fruit (melon). There is a light amount of bubblegum and orange citrus with a hint of wheat.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat with some hints of light fruit (melon) and bubblegum. Some light to moderate citrus orange flavors. Just a hint of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amount sof carbonation.

O: Very easy to drink and the perfect beer for a hot muggy summer afternoon - refreshing.

Amazed this hasn't been added\reviewed yet.

A - Light golden color, hazy, and with small bubbles of carbonation. White foam disappears quickly.

S - Scent of melon, apricots, and honey. Sweet and fresh grain smell.

T - Refreshing, and since today was 90+ outside it was just perfect. Sweet flavors of fruit, and a light grain taste. This is beach beer!

M - Highly drinkable, light and yet has plenty of flavor. All the things you like in a good summer seasonal.

O - Great local beer, and a quality example of the style. Long Islanders should get his on tap or growler fills.
