12 oz. bottle in a shaker. True to it’s description... Pure and simple. No complex flavors, but pretty enjoyable nonetheless.

Light, hazy blond pour. Flavors is largely neutral, with some white bread. Even the carbonation is slight.

Dacrza (502) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: June 27, 2014... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... OCCASION: a ton of yard work done today--time for a reward...APPEARANCE: cloudy, slightly murky yellow-orange body; good effervescence; white, thick, soapy head; sporadic whips of lacing... AROMA: some lemon zest, some dishwasher detergent as well; faint wheat and clove... PALATE: slightly lively; easily drinkable, as the style would suggest; light in body and not fizzy--flat?... TASTE: instantly off-putting funk that doesn’t subside with the next sip (wet cardboard?); malt is somewhat abrasive as well; this is NOT what summer tastes like to me... OVERALLL: sadly, a second chance at a first impression, and yet the same result: a bafflingly unsatisfying flavor married to a thirst-quenching body; plenty of other summer ales deliver more taste and harmonious experiences...

BLADT (577) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Tap pour. Pale, corn colored. Minimal head. Some lacing. Aroma is corn chips and cereal. Did I just open a bag of Frito’s? Taste is similar. Captain Crunch. Huh.

A nice light beer, aroma was very nice and in my opinion was better than the actual taste. Will buy again due to drinkability

John25 (434) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow. Yeast, wheat, and citrus aroma. The taste is light and summery with a lot of lemon flavor and tannins. The mouthfeel is crisp with high carb and there’s a slight metallic note in the aftertaste. Not very good, just a basic summer brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank out of the tap at the brewery. Delicious summer blonde ale. Nice citusy aromas and tastes, without being overpowering. I can see myself enjoying a few of these this summer. Comparable to Hoegaarden.
