Poured into a standard pint glass. A cloudy golden colour with a very big, solid-looking white head.
Smell is fruity -- pears, berries, grapes -- with some malty sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Also, I've yet to get one of these that didn't have a bit of skunk to it -- not sure if it's part of the beer's normal flavour or if I'm just unlucky. I think I take care of them pretty well.
Taste is quite sweet, almost cloying at times, with, again, a bit of skunk. Some fruit and floral elements as well, and a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Not terrible, but probably not something I'd buy again considering all the numerous beers of the same type that are available around here.
