look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.25

A: Weak yellow color, clear. Like a regular pilsener. Like pee ;) Not especially inviting.
S: Citrus fruits. Light bittering hop. Slight sour yeast. Fruity sweetness. Inviting ...
T: Not as full flavored the smell might suggest. Actually the first beer i've experienced that's ruined by the mouthfeel, killing any flavor sensation with an overload of carbonation. I do still get the citrus fruits with a good balance of sweet, bitter and sour.
M: Well, too much carbonation. I don't like the feel at all.

O: The mouthfeel just ruins it for me. Maybe it's because of the taste i had on the day, but somehow every sip i took was taken over by a lot of carbonation tingling. Also the flavor is too one dimensional. There's not much more then citrus fruits. The only good part is that you don't get any alcohol at all, which is an achievement considering the ABV.

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

Appearance: dull, light gold; almost clear; snapping, bubbly head, but burns out after a minute - poured in a chalice, but even so, not good retention

Aroma: sharp, acidic tang; apple, pear, like cider; grape

Taste & Mouthfeel: buttery and fatty feel on the tongue stand out at first, although getting a good sizzle from the carbonation; a mash of fruit flavours, almost juicy, and again apple, pear are standing out, and there's some yeasty spice too; a faint whiff of alcohol at the finish; acidic, but not to the level of the nose, and slightly tart - like a granny smith; a hint of wheat and cereal, but it's quite hidden; nearing the end, the sweetness is getting cloying, tasting of candy syrup, and the aftertaste actually begins to be unpleasant

Overall: the fruitiness is enjoyable, and the mouthfeel is decent, but as time goes on it all becomes too much, just too sweet for my taste
