This is a great beer for in the sun. Definitely a beer for the summer! I’m not sure I’d even like it any other time of the year. It requires hot weather. Though, tonight when I picked up a six pack it wasn’t very warm outside. Just sunny and in the 70’s. It’s the perfect beer for sunny weather is what I’m trying to get at. It’s very refreshing and the low alcohol makes it great for that hot weather. I’m pretty sure any new beer drinker could enjoy this beer. It’s not a beer I’d typically order or buy a six pack of but I was feeling reminiscent of our honeymoon on the Big Island, so I picked up a pack at Whole Foods. This was a great beer on the island. Sunshine, heat, humidity, and a cold Big Wave was perfect. I’d recommend this beer for anyone looking for a nice summer session beer. By the way, that Big Wave in the picture below was $8 at the resort — extortion!
