2.65/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

poured it out of a bottle into a pint glass

a: it looks nice enough. like honey. a little cloudy but without much large sediment. sea foam head. nice bubbles.

s: bring it in and you get a nice floral bouquet... like daises in an open field... I'm pretty excited to taste!

t: hmmm... not what i was expecting from the nose... kinda like drinking gatorade at the laundry mat... I think we can actually tie in mouthfeel here... it has the "gummy" feel of gatorade and the "fruit punch" start... then it leaves this weird floral aftertaste that lasts a really long time ... that when left with the gummy mouthfeel tastes like you're standing next to a running dryer with a nice fresh bounce sheet...

overall not poor but a bit unnerving... I frequently like fruit/floral beers. had a smuttynose with chamomile earlier this afternoon that was great and grew up on abita purple haze. but I probably won't go for this one again.
