Easy drinking substitute for a Belgian Wit. Silky smooth, fine carbonation, nothing over the top. Would go down a treat in a warm summer’s day, seasoning beers in the sun.

Bland micro brew with a craft label. My grandfather might have liked it...along with Sunday evening radio shows...but the world has moved on. And craft beers now have FLAVOR!!!

can. slightly hazy pale gold with a very large, foamy, whipped white head. tangy pilsner malt and a generous handfull of green grassy hops. dry and slightly dusty flavor from some sort of phenolic, banana-noted, belgian yeast. shockingly hoppy and pretty drinkable with the new twist of the classic style.

Cans drunk 2014 and onwards, most recently 7/5/15 at Brava
Clear, light golden colored liquid is quite bubbly, producing a large white head that slowly recedes to cover.
Dry, citric and stone fruit-like hoppiness in the nose also allows some room for light pils malt suggestions of honey and light dough. Yeasty (basement, cobwebs, plaster, that sort of thing) notes abound with warming but give depth and Belgian character to the crisp, dry finish. Perhaps a touch of light resin, but it certainly wasn’t problematic for me and the cleanliness was very surprising. No alcohol or flaws.
Bitter, very well-hopped citra-like hoppiness gives off tart, bitter lemons, limes and grapefruit skins. It is balanced by lightly sweet, but well-attenuated pils malts. Crackery, nearly-astringent flavors (rice?) mix with the bitter, borderline resinous hop assault on the finish to keep the beer extremely crisp and snappy. Despite all of the talk of big hops, resin and bitterness, it goes down very easily. Carbonation is high, texture is lightly watery and very drinkable. Quite delicious and if not as accomplished as Premium, maybe a bit more of a mindless crusher, which is great in its own right.

Can in fl. Honestly, awful. Has a citrus aroma but an old rusty ass taste. Like summertime took pabst, skunked in their trunk (fl sun) for a month. . Then canned it with extra hops

355 (?) ml can from Astral Beers. Unfortunately I just realized that it’s 10 months old, so I’m not going to rate it. I’ll give it 3.5 as that’s the average score so far, not to mess up with the genuine ratings. Great looking can though!

Lemon brine pour. Aroma is light citrus light tang. Taste is light also - tang but not much to remember this one by. Overall, not one I would return to - kind of forgettable.
