look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

750mL bottle into tulip. bottled on 10/01/2013.

A: great clarity. amber/orange hued brew. head is very frothy. slightly off-white. good retention. frothy lacing.

S: floral. a lot of sweet soft fruit. melon. very full fruit body.

T: tastes is similar to the nose. starts fairly fruity. a little slick. grain picks up towards the finish. a little chewy. reminds me of wheat a bit. definitely not bitter. finish is all grain. chewy bar.

M: mellow carb on a medium body.

D: a little underwhelming. under two months old and this already lost a lot of zing. not getting any flaws due to age, just missing a step. I am a fan of the collaboration brews, but making a high quality beer should always take precedence and this misses the mark for me.
