look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy copper color, but with a quick head and only a ring o' foam after a sip or two. OK bubbling though, average appearance overall.

Berries, chalk, and medium toasted barkey and wheat. A hint of banana powder. Smells easy drinking, fruity, and refreshing for the Summer in my area.

Mild berry flavors from start to finish, which I enjoy on a hot Summer day after work. Dry palate, banana powder, and toasted barley and wheat bread crust flavors coming together in the middle of the flavor profile.

Easy to drink, makes me feel happy, and refreshed on a long, working, Summers' day.
