A good beer for summer. Pour was a light yellow with a bit of a haze in it. The smell was mostly citrus and fruit, some banana which I thought was interesting. The taste is primarily that of wheat mixed with hops that have big citrus flavor. It was thin, but with the taste added for a refreshing summer beer. Found in the summer variety pack and was pleasantly surprised by it.

Please forgive me as this is my first review on BA.

Appearance - Golden beverage with a little clouding pours with a thick foamy head that quickly dissipates.

Smell - Slight clean citrus smell, not very overpowering.

Taste - A nice, mellow beer with hints of citrus and spice. Hints of wheat stick to the back of the tongue afterwards.

Mouthfeel - Refreshing and mid-ranged lightness.

Overall - Decent summer/fall beer. Good to pair with a pub burger every now and then, but not a beer that I would buy a full case of.
