4.2/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Creamy white head made up of small, even bubbles. The beer itself was reddish orange in color with a bit of clouding in it.
Smell: Very sweet smelling with a strong black currant smell. This beer really smells like a Marie Calender's pie. It smells very tasty.
Taste: Sour, tart, and sweet berry taste but very light. The berry taste is mostly up front and does not match the nose in its strength. The ending is malty and a bit watery. I don't detect any bitterness anywhere in the beer.
Mouthfeel: Light, clean, smooth.
Drinkability: It makes for a pleasant quaff but it would be better if the taste and the smell matched up a bit better. The taste is only slightly fruity and so the beer doesn't have much else to stand on.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pink. A very unique color that I've never seen in a beer before. Tiny white head on the top throughout.
S: Berries! Blueberries, boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries. Smells like a berry lollipop.
T: Sweet berries on the front end, finishing out with some lemon peel and coriander. Finishes very sour.
M: Super bubbly. Champagne type bubbles.
O: A very unique beer, very fruity and unique. Will seek out again.

3.53/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: It has a nice hazy deep golden/orange color to it with some sediment floating around. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (raspberries, black currant) yeast, citrus and wheat malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some dark fruit (raspberries, black currant, cherries) witch are somewhat tart, citrus, faint yeast and some wheat malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.
