2.59/5  rDev -21.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a Sam Adams glass

A: Amber, clear, about a pinky sized head, little carbonation, big air bubbles stick to the glass.

S: Pear, honey, and a perfumy smell that comes under the pear. It smells very fruity.

T: Sweet. This is probably a little sweeter than I would like but I would attribute that to the fact that there isn't much hop flavor to balance out the sweetness. It's not bad, it's just very fruity.

MF: Creamy, smooth, and leave an oily feel to the mouth. Very light beer.

O: I've had other fruit beers before but I didn't enjoy this one as much as I would've liked. I thought it wasn't very balanced and was overly sweet.

3.61/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Clear light copper pour with a foamy white one-finger head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Very nice taste that is mostly sweet but does have a slightly tart edge. Predominant flavors are light fruit (pear or tropical?), mild malt and a touch of floral hop bitterness that fades quickly on the back end. Finishes with a touch of tartness. Its different but good and very refreshing.
