Smells like citrus and pine hops - very nice. Perhaps this is the "flirty" the bottle informed me of. Decent pine and wet grass flavor but this beer tastes malt-less. Watery even for a session. Camping in the adks drinking Adirondack ale makes me happy.

I've certainly had worse. Hoppy, lacking backbone,

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high bright white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops and funk are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the funky flavors are a little stronger and seem to somewhat resemble bits of Brett yeast. Slight amounts of bitterness are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With the notes of funk in the smell and taste, this beer tastes like a hybrid between an APA and an American Wild Ale.

Got in a beer of the month club thing.. pours a hazy golden yellow, thick white head. Candied orange in the nose. Tastes much dryer, with dry orange juice, citrus pith, some astringency and citric acid bite accompany the wheatiness at the end. Very prickly, spritzer-esque carbonation. Almost like a shandy, but more spritzery. Drinkable, not too sweet, which I like. I think it would be a lot better if it had less carbonation and more hop presence, but very good day-drink nonetheless. 7.6/10
