look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pale yellow and cloudy. Lots of yeast on the bottom of this bottle. Healthy white head at pour - at least a finger on 10 oz. The smell is floral and fruity - definitely citrus - I get strong citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit watery - mild carbonation. Flavor is very nice - again fruity up front and sweet on the end.

Bottle into tasting glass

Pours a bit like lemonade. Thin white bubbles, pale, minimal head.

Aroma is sour pears and citrus. Appetizing.

The taste itself is watery, though I don't find that the case with the mouthfeel. Lightly citrus with white pepper and gently spiced. Little force of flavor up-front and no aftertaste.

Good carbonation. Very light feel and finishes with a light spice.

Very easy to drink; so smooth across the board.
