3.14/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

This almost pours like a Radler with a lemon juice like color and a frothy white head. Lots of small bubbles course throughout and some stick to the glass.

The aroma is floral with rose petal, perfumes, honey suckle and banana. Almost like a Hefeweizen this has a clove spiciness with a liquid soap type aroma.

The taste has a wheat and grain taste and dryness but is overwhelmed by the floral hop and yeast flavors. Rose petal and perfume, clove and yeast, soapy and phenolic this is not my favorite.

The feel is a touch dry at first but then has a resiny slickness. It also has a carbonated harshness.

I'm guessing this is quite frankly not my cup of tea. It seems to be well received but not by my palate.
