This tastes like a warm windy day. I can't explain this. Hoppy but lifted flavor.

I really didn't know what to make of this, not quite a wheat beer,not quite a true Belgian,not quite pale...lemongrassy and light on the palete a nice summer beer, but I think after one I may move back to a stout.

Light, but inviting aroma. Hops and an imperceptible otherness, which is figured out immediately upon tasting the beer as being lime. The wheat malt lends a nice crispness and the beer is subtley, but nicely hopped. A very nice summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amazing but mild aroma, green grassy, light citric, even some Saazy badness. Clean across the tongue, refreshing, lightly salty, the zestyness is there, so are the hops. Nice head retention. Very nice!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hmmm. I expected something different when I opened the bottle. Oh well, you take them as they come. Uninteresting in appearance, some head, clinging and lacing over a vibrant yellow-gold body. A pils-plus aroma, i.e. in a blind test you might group this with some pilsners at first whiff but there are some deeper aromas to distinguish this, notably grapefruit, flowers, grass, wheat, perfume, and a hint of spice, perhaps cardamom. Good hopping. The taste is less interesting, being gently malty with a sweet backside perhaps suggested by the citric tang (the lime more noticeable here). There is some life to the carbonation but the palate is still odd, at times seeming heavy and hurt by the slightly astringent effect of the sour and bitter combination. Different, you'd have to say, and it is drinkable, but it needs a food pairing (perhaps food from a summertime grill, like burgers and brats) it isn't especially captivating. I.e. it doesn't fly my kite.

Light amber color decent carbonation and foam. Aroma has hints of wheat, lemon, grapefruit and lightly carmelized malts. Lemon and light malt sweetness initially showing a little carmel later on. Bitter hoppy finish with signs of grapefruit. Very light overall but a decent refreshing beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Looks like a pilsener with its clear yellow body & white frothy head.
Aroma: None, but I don't have a good sense of smell.
Flavor: Slightly velvety on the tongue w/ a bit of a tangy finish.
This is a good beer for a hot day.

First had this beer at a beer festival last year in August. Loved it back then, and still do. I think it's a beer you love or hate. Very different with a peppery taste. Wonderful aroma. A wheaty but ale aftertaste. Just a joy to quaff on a hot day.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What an unusual and delightful beer. Not much in the nose, and a deeper than just 'light yellow' color. Very dry for the most part. There is a big hole in the flavor but this is part of why it's interesting. It is a sharp, perfumy, hoppy, and odd beer. If you want something middle of the road look elsewhere, if you want something strangely different... here it is.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish,golden color,small white head.Malty,mildly sweet aroma with some definate hops and hints of citrus.Malty taste,slight sweetness to it there is a mellow hop taste that comes out,the finish is a little weak mild hops with a some what watery feel.Not a bad brew but i think maybe just a little alcohol bump up would help it out with a few other tweeks to get it there,but over all it is still a very refreshing brew.
