3.88/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Pours out to a clear golden copper with a 2 finger off-white head that subsides gently.
Smell is strongly of fruit with slight bits of pear, citrus, and mango (I know, weird). This is a really good smelling beer.
The taste really brings out exactly what one expects from the smell. Nice big fruity, citrusy flavor with a rather delayed and prolonged hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel is a bit grainy and thick with not too much in the way of carbonation. Really good stuff.
Drinkability isn't the greatest due to the huge fruity flavor this has. Also, it doesn't finish as crisp as I'd like, but on the whole, a very decent beer.
