Pours a light straw color with a decent head that leaves lacing behind.

Smell is of straw, pear, pineapple, white wine, mild aromatic hops, and ginger.

taste is similar with a nice light complexity of wet hay and mild hops, with tropical fruits hinting throughout the taste.

Mouthfeel is about right, medium carb and decent slickness.

Overall I think this is a beer some people may like, but it's not perfect. It's kind of light on the taste, and has an effervescent feel.
