3.71/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 12/30/13.

Pours a murky orange brown with a 1/2 inch khaki head that quickly disappears completely and leaves very faint spots of lace. This looks like Kern's Peach Nectar.

The smell is somewhat muted and consists of sweet tropical fruit and faint tart raspberry.

The taste is strangely flavorless and water-like at first but, the mango and raspberry presence kicks in on the back end.

The texture is medium bodied with low carbonation.

This is an interesting effort, if nothing else. It reminds me of a refreshing tropical drink... minus the paper umbrella.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

S- bottle, shipped from Cali
A-Cloudy ,
S- raspberry
T- bland, boring. Exact same raz flavor as Rubaeus but tamer.
M- lacking any significant mouthfeel
O- in summation: nothing great or inspirational about this. A flop, shot down in flames, crash/burn waste of time

Windowsill was much more interesting

I try everything I can get from Bruery, and really like most of it : this was lame for such a heralded brewery
