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.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
On tap at The Ginger Man. Wheat aroma. Pale yellow cidery colour with some lace. Nicely drinkable, a bit astringent but also well malted finish. Refreshing. Mineral water carbonation, average or above mouthfeel.

jredmond (5194) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Draft at Rattle N Hum in NYC. Pours clear yellow body with small white head. Aroma is sweet candy - maybe some bubblegum as well. Taste is very smooth, but a bit too watery. If this had more flavor it would be a top notch wit.

imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at CdC release. Hazy copper/gold pour with fizzy white head. Aromas of oranges, spice, and slight hops. Flavors of citrus and not much else. Lots of carbonation though. Kind of a boring beer.

crazyvin (1896) - New York, USA - SEP 29, 2008
On tap. Although smooth, I found this to be a bit thin on the palate. I know the style is supposed to be a little on the light side and easy to drink, but i found it to be slightly watery. It did have nice balance between citrus notes and spices and a good wheat presence.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Draught at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. Golden, orange-tinted pour, not super cloudy. Wheat, lots of citrus, curacao, coriander? A bit cloyingly sweet/fruity. Thin palate. Good summer beer, for sure, but too sweet to be a sessionable one for me.

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2008
@ the brewery. Out of all that I sampled this was my least favorite, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. Cloudy gold body with white fizz. Main flavors of spice with soap undertones. Aight.
