Reviewed on 3/28/2009

I bought this at The Wine And Cheese place the other day, they sent an update through e-mail saying they had just received them in and they were bottled on 3/11/2009!! Super fresh. So I had to go get some while they had them.

12oz bottle with a squigly drawing of a sun with a face. No freshness date.

A- Poured it into my Bitburger pilsner glass. Pours a light copper color, looks slightly unfiltered and I see no sediment. Many tiny bubbles make their way to the top of the glass at a quick pace. Fluffy, even white head, with some lacing on the sides. Looks good to me!

S- Smells of many light (orange) citrus fruits, sweet like clementine or tangerine. Very light hop presence.

T- Sweet, perfect amount of carbonation, again all of the light citrus fruits are coming through. Orange, tangerine, and clementine. Leaves a pleasant after taste!This is a very tasty wheat beer!

D- Very. I could drink these all day at a good speed.

Notes: Great for any outdoor summer or spring lounging or activity! Unfortunately today is a very rainy, glum day; the weather channel is even saying we are supposed to get a couple inches of snow! But despite the cold and ugly weather, this is a beautiful beer good for any occasion. Thank you, Bell's for another great beer.

Poured at the brewpub. It has a cloudy straw colored body with a think white head. The aroma is very wheaty with a fairly strong lemony character. The flavor is nice and light with a slight hop flavor. It is very light bodied and makes an excellent summer drinker.
