Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint tropical fruitiness, some grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dry, grassy – some citrus hoppyness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy blonde with some lively carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is suprisingly complex for the style: hops, citrus, sweet fruitiness, earthy, a some used bookstore. Sweet malt at the front of the tongue, some earthy bitterness on the finish, and a touch of peat and sourness. Medium body. Dry finish. Overall, delicious, fresh tasting and well balanced.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 smells slightly hoppy w/ a little oak. not very nice.
full body but tastes like sun tea gone a bit off
not good. i’d think it had sun strike if i hadn’t bought it at the brewery and kept it in a box.
