Delicious refreshing beer but is a bit thin. taken the low alcohol considered a very well done summer beer.

11.2oz bottle. The beer pours a bright hazy straw with an enormous fluffy white head that fizzes a bit on its way down to a hefty cap. Aroma has citrus elements, especially lemon zest, with a lot of grainy notes. There is light sweet pale wheat, grass and a Sprite-like lemon-lime thing going on. The taste has more of a sour wheat flavor than the aroma and definitely has more pale malts and grains. The citrus seems to be dialed down a bit up front, but comes back in the finish, which leaves a lemony tartness on the tongue. The mouthfeel is light bodied and very spritzy. This is a solid summer beer and very drinkable though it doesn’t measure up to the best pale wheats out there, largely because of the substantially different ABV. As a low alcohol beer, it’s actually quite good.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 8, 2011
bottle-pours highly carbonated lite orange with a huge foamy white head that lasts forever! at least an inch thick. nose is bready, yeasty, light grains, lemons, lite floral hops. flavors of metallic hops, lemons, spicy yeast and some lite tartness. most definately one of the best low abv beers out there. lots of flavor and little body make this an easy drink. wish it came in a 6 pk or something. very lite but with lots of flavor is the name of the game here. wish it was a bit more fresh but regardless, if this were to be sold while i was on deployment, i would have had it all the time!

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow color with a finger of crisp white head atop. The head fades fairly quickly leaving behind lots of lace. S - The aroma is a mix of lemon and other citrus elements, some grainy malt, and a bit of herbal hops as well. T - Starts off with a kick of slightly tart lemon flavor balanced by some grainy malts. Through the middle, a bit of yeast and some herbal hop flavors mix in. The finish is a mix of grainy malt and yeast that linger. M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Super smooth and crisp without feeling watery or empty at all. D - Super drinkable. It is a bit remarkable how light and low abv (2.4%) this beer is, and the fact that it still tastes like beer and has substance to it.

12oz bottle, purchased at Whole Foods - Coddingtown. Pours a bright, hazy golden color; huge, foamy white head with great retention and lacing; looks fantastic and refreshing. Dry-hop aroma just spilling out of the glass: grassy, citrusy, herbal; some notes of hay and just a touch of honey; dry and crisp. Medium-light to light body; high carbonation (good choice); a very dry core of basic honeyed and toasty sweetness, with a sharp, zesty citrus and grassy hoppiness (floral and herbal notes in there as well: a vibrant, fresh-tasting hop character); just noticed the hop additions are Amarillo (comes across more grapefruit and lemony than orange) and Tettnanger (that spicy and herbal quality especially comes through beautifully on the nose); hugely drinkable, satisfying beer for 2.4%; very impressed by this. If only it wouldn’t cost me a couple hundred dollars to session this... Delicious. Medium-length finish: lingering citrus and herbal bitterness, just a touch of honey, nicely bone dry.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Sampled on tap at Mikkeller Bar Hazy, almost muddy pale yellow with a small white head. Light and fresh hop scents of grass and citrus. Flavours of hops in the taste. Finishes with a good bitterness. Amazing for being a low alcohol.

This hazy golden concoction is anything but what you would expect from this low abv brew. High carbonation, big foamy head, but a wonderfully light and crisp flavor with a hint of breadiness that makes you think is a normal beer - rather than the ultra-session beer that it is? Mikkeller amazes me again.

Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours cloudy golden with a massive white head and a floral aroma. There is a subtle fruity flavor with a little funk and a flowery bitter finish. Very fresh. Lots of flavor for a low alcohol brew.
Earlier Rating: 7/29/2011 Total Score: 3.4
On tap at The Trappist. Pours cloudy golden with a rich white head and a light floral aroma. There is a slightly thin but refreshing pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. Packs a lot of flavor for a low alcohol beer.
