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.
