A: Pours a cloudy pinkish brown with a small head. Little sustain or lacing.
S: Like a mix of ocean spray and Carlo Rossi rose. Not very inviting, but thankfully, not very aggressive either.
T: Somewhat tart with a dominant cranberry taste and an odd, wheaty flavor in the finish. The balance is just plain weird with the tartness and sweetness of the fruit competing against a non-assertive but present hop taste.
M: Light-bodied with medium carbonation. A taste of artificial sweetener lingers on the palate.
D: Not as bad as most people make this out to be, but not very pleasant either. Perhaps a good gateway beer for those who like fruity things.
Serving type: bottle
