Sampled from the tap at The Bridge. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a touch of light tart fruit with a bit of Belgian yeast and a touch of grass. Flavor a nice grass and light fruits with some Belgian yeast and a touch of grain.

12 oz can purchased as a single at Wine & Cheese, If You Please? on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The pour is a hazy golden yellow with a rocky one inch egg white head that falls slowly with nice lacing. The aroma is lemon and apple fruit, hay, grass and bready malt. The taste is a pleasant combination of the fruit soft sweet notes, along with the general hay bread malt. There is an interesting tang to the finish which also dried it out considerably. The palate is light to medium bodied, active carbonation and the clean dry finish. Interesting beer, quite easy to drink.

Earthy lightly citrus hopped aroma. The citrus really shines. Slightly opaque more translucent gold with a white fluffy head. Taste is light melon and watery. Bright but a true session.

Nice light warm weather beer. Crisp with some lemon zest, a little bitterness at the end; very clean with some subtlety ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Pours hazy pale hay yellow with a thick and foamy eggshell head. Aroma is sweetness, bread, citrus, light spice, yeast. Light bodied, easy drinking. Flavor is light citrus, pepper, grain. Both aroma and flavor have some hefeweizen similarities, but with a distinct, crisp pilsner flavor. A nice lighter beer.

Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a thick forming, frothy white head. This was a nice drinking lager. Sort of drying, but ultimately very refreshing with a prominent yeast spice character in the finish. Some husky, grainy, maybe rice-like tones, but clean. Low bitterness on this one too and with 4.5% it is a great session.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a rich, dense, three to four centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of very light hops, hay, grass, herbs and a bit of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp light malt flavour with cardboard and grain with very little else on the body, just a big dose of strong hops, hay, grass and a bit of wheat. Aftertaste shows just the hops, grass and hay with a touch of sugar at the tail end. Overall, a very interesting beer - smells great, and the first few tastes are good, but then you realise there is no body and no depth at all. Still, not a bad beer, but just not amazing - great to sample and neat to try this based on the malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon (not even local to me/brewery) on 27-September-2013 for US$2.38 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2013.

Can from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent light gold with a large creamy white head. Aroma of a floral hoppy pilsner. Med body. Flavor matches aroma - flavors are not super strong - but quite tasty. Develops a bit of earth in the finish.
