look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a very hazy orange color. A finger or so of a white head that slowly fades away

Smell: grassy and wheaty. Some citrus. A bit musky

Taste: opens up with a grassy wheat taste, not as musky as the smell. Gives way to a light citrus fruit taste

Mouthfeel: light drinkable.

Overall: a good not great summer beer. I love how it is at almost any bar with taps in Michigan over the summer, but that also means I will only get it as a last resort and certainly never in a bottle besides to drink a super fresh one every year

A perfect compliment to a summer afternoon. This beer pours well with grilled fish or steak. This seasonal brew is available from April to October. Best served in a chilled glass this beer will provide a modest head. Usually served with an orange slice, this beer will satisfy any thirsty mouth.
