Pours a gorgeous bright gold color, cloudy with a robust 4 finger off-white soapy head that retains well but does settle down eventually leaving spotty lacing. Good start. Aroma has some piquant citrus with maybe a touch of stone fruit. It does not smell overly sweet with fruit. The flavor is surprisingly fresh and strong with some lime and pine notes - again, not on the sweet side, which makes it feel lighter and more crisp. The finish is moderately bitter and the mouthfeel is soft if not a touch watery (it is only 4.9% after all).

As a session ale this has some of the richest flavor and smooth mouthfeel around these parts. Have to say I may have found a new fave lighter beer for the summer now.

Looks like Sunday morning OJ, a.k.a mimosa. A beautifully matched aspen white head seems promising. Alas, it's gone before two (semi-quick sips) and then proceeds to deny me lacing. Superficial aroma of spiked grapefruit juice. Deeper inhales give off a more nuanced tropical earthy and citrus aroma: the end of a sandalwood-orange air freshener; and, a raspberry pie topped with a passionfruit meringue and lime zest. Taste straight up is a licked, sticky sour tangerine altoid rolled thru a glen filled with cedar boughs. And, for dessert, a scoop of raspberry lime sherbert. Has a deceptively smoothie like body to it, but deceptively thinner and crisper thanks to the booziness. This doesn't translate to the best of both worlds.

Overall impression: perfectly flawed.
