Clearly out of season, but whatever - I'm giving it a try... Medium-gold and clear with a coupla fingers of white head... Has a mild citrus and gentle spice character - kicks off herbal and floral aromas... Feel is smooth but lively, amply carbonated, mildly sweet, mildly bitter... Very easy to drink...

Definitely not my style but a decent enough beer for what it is...

Yellow in color, tastes fruity like a summer beer, and feels heavy on the mouth.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is very good. A wheat and citrus aroma. A little grainy and spicy. Taste is a little off. Wheat and grain. Some citrus and mild spiciness. Honey? Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.
