look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, copper colored with a 1" white head that dissipates leaving some lacing, clear
S: sweet fruit smells of apple and pear, citrus hops, sweetest and fresh
T: taste is watery with little happening, sour fruits mixed with light lager
M: thin with a ton of carbonation, constant streams of bubbles,finish is crisp
O: I got excited over the look and smell, let down by taste, I would have liked more complex flavors to match the delicious smell
