What the brewers say

“A spin on the classic American wheat ale, Neon Bloom is enhanced with Lemon Drop and Citra hops, backed with natural lemon peel for a fresh and fragrant experience.”

What our panel thought

“Distinctly orange peel and tangerine tropical aromas give way to a slightly dry, crisp flavor profile with aspects of lemongrass, wheat, and coriander. Accentuating the citrus notes are hops characteristics that are equal parts grapefruit pith, orange peel, lemon, and pine. The slightly thin nature of the mouthfeel and the moderate carbonation seem to accentuate the dryness in the finish, making it crisp, but a bit watery.”

What our editors thought

“Strong lemon on the nose overpowers everything. On the sip, the hops push forward with a balanced bitterness over the citrus bite. It flirts with lemon-cleaner disaster but pulls through in the finish with a balance of sweet and sour.”
