From a six-pack. Appearance is cloudy gold, not a lot of smell, but a bit of citrus. Taste is flowery and grassy. Feel is light, refreshing, thirst quenching, an excellent session beer. I bought this beer to keep in the hotel room after running a half-marathon. Excellent choice.

Had on tap at brewery,a nice brew that is a light easy beer to have in warm weather. I found it a bit bitter and too dry on the finish but might try it again. Everyone's described the taste accurately, it's just whether this does it for you or not

No date on the bottle, purchased from the brewery.

Hazy, pale gold in color, with a small white head. Light bready malts with citrus hops. Wheat malt and lemon flavor. Soft finish with a hint of spice. Medium-light bodied, good carbonation, and unoffensive. An easy drinking American Blonde Ale, nothing more, nothing less. A nice option for a hot day in the sun.

Nice smooth with a good flavor. A bit lighter feel but not watered down. Would certainly try again.
