3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Most people who drink this will get it in bottles from the Craft Beer Tour Sampler.
It is easily, easily the weakest of the three brews included. It has a nice sweetness to it, but really doesn’t strike you as anything particularly special...especially when paired with a masterpiece like Widmer Bros Brotha From Anotha Motha or Red Hook’s excellent hoppy blonde (and all credit to them for not calling it a ’blonde ipa’), Blondage.
This isn’t a bad wheat beer with some added hoppiness, but it doesn’t taste like anything special. It’s a little hoppier and a little sweeter than your average macrobrew, but I get nothing in the malt or mouthfeel that makes me crave a second.
I buy the variety pack containing this beer frequently, and I always have 3 of these left at the very end...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A get a citrusy sweet aroma from this pale hazy crew with a small white head. A bitter sweet slightly citrusy beer light bodied and crisp. For a pale its pretty hazy. There isnt much body. But not a bad brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
~Strong refreshing citrusy, orange lemon zest aroma, slight piney character, crisp biscuity maltiness.
~Pours a clear golden color with small white disappearing head.
~Hops arent as assertive in flavor as in aroma, but orange is still very present along with the lemon more balanced with biscuity malt characteristics.
~Medium bodied, smooth on palate, medium CO2, long lasting bitter hop finish beckoning for another sip.
~I could drink three of these on a hot day. After three I would get bored and want something else. Good thirst quencher and into hop forward beer for newbies.
