GMCC2181 (1501) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Draft at the brewpub... Bright yellow orange color. Good head. Smell nice, lemon, lemon peel and zest, citrus, wheat notes followed by spices. Taste is nice summer brew. Crisp and light. Light spices, lemon, lemon peel and zest with a nice touch of wheat. Body is light and refreshing. Like the low alcohol content, could of put down a whole bunch of these bad boys

Draft at brewpub. Pours cloudy pineapple with an inch of white foam which fades and leaves no lacing. Not a ton on the nose except a faint lemon thing. Thin on the tongue which is nicer in the summer a hint of spices. Finishes clean. A bit muddy on the execution.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2012
On tap at Rustico Ballston. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a fairly-hazy yellow with a nice, fluffy white head and a good bit of lacing on the way down. The nose is pretty muddled with the rooibos and zest not meshing with anything. Just ends up with coriander and an earthiness. Flavor is similar, but also has an odd bitterness from all the additions. Body was light-medium. Not a fan.
