Bottle from giant eagle. Light hop smell and turbid pour. Crisp clean taste and sharp initial mouthfeel followed by smooth floral aftertaste. Not too spiced. Overall a decent warm weather beer. ---Rated via my mouth

Pours medium yellow with a white lingering head and lacing. Nose is light resinous hops. Palate is light medium with a vegetal - not bad - taste. Very little bitterness.

Light amber color, poured from 12oz bottle. Dandelion is noticed, but is not obnoxious.

Nice nose of honey and flowers that helps to offset the ugly appearance (I wondered if I poured into a dirty glass!). Pleasant, but not overly complex. Enjoyable summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, lemon and orange zest, and a bit of bananas. Taste earthy, like grass and plant stems. Hints of citrus and a medicinal banana flavoring. Like children’s medicine that has been flavored. Nice carbonation and refreshing. Just doesn’t taste all that great.

Dont think this is as bad as other reviews suggest - at least hats off for trying something different - A bit watery but reminds you spring is just around the corner. Reminded me of a mix between a pale and a wheat without the funky coriander & orange flavors of some spring seasonals.

From the Summer Scene pack. Cloudy orange pour - actually, more "floating particles" than cloud. Medium fluffy white head. Aroma is definitely floral, with a swampy earth background and some malty and hops hanging around. Flavor is hard to place - definitely a bitterness coming from something other than the hops, along with a dry mint taste and some grapefruit. a little malty at the end, sort of hurts the effect. This is pretty interesting, just doesn’t come together.

Very interesting beer. Aroma and flavor is of fresh herbs, citrus, lemongrass. No bitterness. Herbal aroma and flavor strengthens as beer warms up. Very good for summer.

TomTron (452) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus zest, lemon, and light malts. Flavors of citrus, lemon, acidity and a rather dry, almost puckering finish. Honestly not as bad as expected, but still nothing I really cared for.
