A: Very pale straw, bright and clear, a few lazy bubbles rise to the medium-large, stark white cap of foam that falls quickly & leaves just a of splats of lace.

S: Floral sweetness blends into floral/grassy & lemony hops. A bit of a grainy & doughy wheat malt background. Aroma is decent, but lacking in roundness & depth, a bit stretched, and low on strength.

T: Like the nose – more floral than honey. But it does play a pleasant and central roll. Softly sweet rather than cloying, and with a fair light honey flavor. Base beer is more of a light , macro lager than a wheat beer. A bit of crackery malt and husky grain. Some lemony citrus hops that turn grassy in the finish with soft bitterness. It has a hint of a bite, but this is so minimal that it could easily be just some carbonic acid from the carbonation.

M: Medium-light with carbonation well matched. Smooth & refreshing. Slightist tart hint up front with a bit of a soapy impression at the finish (particularly as it warms). Manages to stay semi-sweet throughout.

D: A light summer thirst solution. Not all that different from macro swill. Floral honey sweetness and lemon hops don’t really work well together, and – along with the appearance- contribute to a diluted, honey-sweetened shandy impression.
