Pours a pale straw color with a weak white head. The head was thin (half a finger width) and faded very quickly.
The aroma was sweet with a hint of raisin and sour fruit. This beer has a tart, almost sour ale flavor. There is a mild hoppiness but not pronounce enough to be enjoyed. A little buttery with a clean finish and a mouthfeel that isn't all the pleasant.
A good attempt by a larger established brewer, however not a refreshing enough beer for summer.
