this is a great beer and highly received by all types of drinkers. it's very refreshing and at ~4.5% ABV, you can keep 'em coming all day long. there's plenty of orange zest and coriander in the nose, and every sip finishes with a slight taste of honey that leaves your palate craving more. its medium-light body makes this beer highly drinkable and allows the drinker to acknowledge the grain bill.

i recommend this beer for outdoor, daytime events (i.e. picnics, barbecues, tailgates). the hotter the drinking weather, the better this beer tastes!

happy brewing.

Just brewed this and have it on tap. Nothing but compliments so far. Pretty similar to blue moon but not as fruity. Very refreshing

My last picture didn't do this beer's head any justice.

Bottled from the keg. This is roughly two months after fermentation was complete, and this beer is absolutely fantastic.

I have 3 pints left and every time I taste this beer I am more and more impressed.
