A - Pretty, lightly hazy light pekoe orange tea. Nice large near white head slow to leave. Tons of fine bubbled lace.
S - First thing I smell is the fruit and booze. Frankly, it reminds me a little of a mixed berry cider I made, which is not a good sign. Malt present but fainter.
T - Sweetness from the malt and the fruit battling it out, a little cloying.
M - Thick, sweetish, not very good balance.
D - A nice one to try as very different, but I don't know if I will get much past the first few sips.

Clear copper colored with a ruby tightly bubbled head that slowly recedes to a fine cap.
A low aroma of yeastiness and fruit, but tough to discern the type of fruit without knowing.
Yeasty flavors upfront, phenolic and footy, hints of fruit come through, would like a bit more. Tough to discern berries, seems mostly blueberry emerging. Spicy bite in the finish. Yeast dominates too much for me, which detracts from the ex-berry-ence.
