Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a Monday night. I’m not particularly a fan of this one, unfortunately. The wheat and lemongrass give this a soapy profile with spice notes. Just not for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pour Phil’s in Oak Park, IL. for this year’s Tale of Two Parks Pub Crawl. Served as a full sampler with a cloudy, straw color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and wavy streaks & spots of lacing. The nose was lightly sweet, grassy, floral, and citrus. I looked around to see if anyone had just gotten a hair cut, then concluded that a combination of the spice & lemongrass gave off a light, Pinaud aftershave scent! The taste continued the citrus and light sweetness in a light body, with lively carbonation, spritzy mouth-feel, and some dryness on the finish. Light, and decently quaffable.

Very fruity and tangy wheat ale, the lemongrass plays a big role in the taste, decent.
