This one took me by surprise. I just grabbed an 6 pack today and tried my first one. Impressive for such a seemingly simple profile. Smooth, malty, slight non citrus hops, attractive. Feel is maybe a little too bright for my liking, but okay for the taste. Just an ale that tastes like a beer, and comes across very fresh, which is the best part.

The grapefruit juice and sage (!) make this.

A pretty gold color in my pint glass. Small white head.
Grassy aroma. Herbal. Citrus.
Definitely a wheat beer. Grapefruit. Herbal.
A thirst-quenching beer with flavor.
Great!

On-tap 8/28/2016 at Flynn’s in Mansfield, MA, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light gold color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains citrus, wheat, light caramelized malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a light malt character. Then some mild sweetness comes in from citrus and caramel. The hops presence is very mild and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better choices within the style.
