COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the sun starts to peek out from around the dark winter clouds it is a clear reminder that brighter days lie ahead. Brewed with pale & wheat malts for a refreshing backbone & hopped with some bright citrusy American hops this beer will help you fight off the sun all season long.

Pours clear blonde. Smell is weak, some malts. Taste is bit sweet, some aromamalts and slightly a hoppy character. Rather thin, but good carbo. I can imagine it wouls make a nice drink in the summer.

Bottle (12 oz) bought @ RP Beer Emporium. Based on the last rating, this might be from last summer so quite old already.

Appearance: Clear pale golden with a large quickly diminishing but easy to revive white head and some lacing.

Aroma: The fact this light beer is quite olad might not be a problem after even if the aromatic hops are mostly gone because it appears that really nice herbal brettanomyces are taking most of the place now. Combined with light citrusy notes and light spiciness, this is quite interesting.

Taste: The herbal brettanomyces are there too, though they are a lot less powerful. There’s also citrus, light wheat acidity and mild peppery notes.

Palate: Very light body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Dry and mildly herbal finish.

Overall: The body is very light so this is like a diluted Orval, but still a diluted Orval is better than 90% of the beers. Amazing drinkability. An old beer supposed to be past his prime that turned out to be quite a fun one.

Ehhh. Bottled. Hazy pale color big head. Aroma is hops, some weak banana and cloves. Wet cardboard. Taste is mild hops up front, wheaty clove and banana in the middle and mild hops finish. Disappointing.

A hazed blonde wheat ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light fruity malt with grassy hops, ok. In mouth, an aggressive wheat ale with mineral notes, light Brett, grassy hop, veering on Orval. On tap at Coney Island on tap.

PhillyCraft (4069) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Tap, Light golden pour with light head and lace. Notes are tons of wheat, vanilla cream, and faint hops. It’s refreshing but sweet and filled with an abundance of fruity wheat. Finish is forgettable with nothing left behind on the palate.

pineypower (2754) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours an attractive golden color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, lemon peel and some grainy cereal/bread. Taste is clean, grapefruit peel, lemon, light spice, toasty bready malts, light lingering lemony bitterness. Easy drinking, and decent.

12oz bottle from a Wegman’s in Buffalo, NY. A cloudy pale amber pour with a thin white head; citrus aroma with some wheat in the background; an explosion of grapefruit in the mouth supported by a firm grainy body; and a crisp finish. A great refresher.
