Just way too sweet and syrupy. Lacking balance in flavor and body.

At my local bar/bottle shop we keep this on tap almost all summer/fall, and it's a great go to on a hot day or just a nice day in general. As refreshing as a beer can get. This and Steigl Radler are two beers to have around for a hot summer day.

Very sweet and fruity beer. Remind me of a Belgian Krieg. Nice to change things up every once in a while.
