Postmortem Brew Review
Lemony yellow, straw color; bit of haze.
Pleasant citrus orange-like aroma with wheat and hint of spice.
Two-finger head that mellows to a wisp leaving scant lacing.
Very refreshing leaving pleasant sweet aftertaste of citrus.
Modest amount of carbonation.
Light and airy
mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This is an extremely fine refresher, whether it's a hot day outside or just as a switch up between sessions of hoppy beers.  I found the Satsuma to be satisfying and easy to drink.  The satsuma makes the wit especially pleasant in aromas and in taste.  Very unique.

Simply put, I can imagine this being my new go-to beer at the beach, by the pool or after cutting the lawn.  ABV is a very modest 5.1% so it wont slow down your day.
