look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Enjoyed in a chalice

A: pours a very very pale and light hay color that is just slightly hazy with a small amount of carbonation bubbles and a three finger head that is pure white, very light and fluffy and lingers very nicely, leaves a decent amount of lacing
S: very night slight peppery notes and a gentle lemon peel scent, a nice grainy note like honey nut cheerios
T: really nice taste, reminds me kind of like a really faint apple juice, slight spice and clove notes, finishes with a bit of a bitter note, there is a slight bubble gum note in the front of the sip as well
M: gentle carbonation tingle but definitely fizzy, smooth and airy across the palate, leaves the mouth feeling slightly dry
O: given its overall rating, i had expected more complexity, i do suppose that this is a spot on representation of the style, it hits right as it should, drinks nicely enough and the alcohol is not perceivable
