COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional summer wheat beer marries a west coast Pale ale. Brewed with locally grown wheat, providing a complex mouthfeel, and single-hopped and generously dry-hopped with Amarillo, creating a glorious citrusy aroma and finish. The approachable 5% abv makes this the perfect session beer on a summer day.

12oz brown bottle. Medium yellow pour with a little haze. Good looking white cap, very creamy and long lasting with some sticky shoulders. Nose has lemon and grapefruit hops. Int he mouth the beer is dryish and wheaty with nice Amarillo notes, slight lemon and grapefruit notes. Some yeast and wheat in the aftertaste with some mild bitterness. Light body and refershing carbonation. Better than I expected. a nice simple hoppy, wheaty quaffer.

Comes out of the bottle a slightly hazy solar yellow with a fluffy and somewhat persistent ivory head. Wheaty and slightly citrusy aroma has a surprising hoppy overtone. Wheaty flavor is quite refreshing - if it’s hot you’ll wanna chug it (but please do so responsibly!) and enjoy the hints of hops and lemon. Texture is smooth, though not too fizzy, so it glides down the pipes easily. A perfect way to welcome summer, or bit it farewell.

I will just say that this is a very bland beer. I may be biased towards heavier beer but this is a cross between a pale ale and Michelob ultra. Very floral aroma, but missed the mark with a grainy aftertaste. Not my fav.

Tap at Victoria Gastro Pub. Pours hazy straw yellow/gold with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is wheat malt, lemon peel, citrus and pine hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light wheat notes, lemon and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Little bit hoppy for a non-ipa summer beer, but still easy enough to drink. Light and mild.

I'm not a big fan of beer so hoppy it could be growing in the bottle. So this summer session is a fairly good fit. The nose is pleasant. Initial taste is not overly hopped however you know it's there. The other flavors are light and perfect for swinging in the heat while standing in front of the grill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Finback during a bar crawl through Bar Harbor with my wife. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, sweet and bready. Little buttery, soft and musky. Light sweetness, crisp musk, dusky grain. Tolerable, but not worth it.
