This beer pours a murky golden color with a slight pinkish hue. There is a decent amount of foamy white head that leaves a small amount of lacing behind.

This beer smells really good, its dominantly fruity but there is still a wheaty bready smell undernearth.

Flavor wise its a pretty crisp and sweet beer. You can taste the fruit juice and the rest of the beer, I kind of like that aspect of it. The fruit juice comes in near the end and it has a sort of dry finish. I don't really like the amount of carbonation it has but its not too bad. Theres no distinctive hop or malt character though.
