Had this on a weekend pub crawl in Montreal.

A: Poured a slightly cloudy golden with absolutely no head into a pint. Possibly a bad pour from the bartender, I didn't see it being poured.

S: Very fruity aroma dominated by berries.

T: Very round maltiness followed by a balancing mild hoppiness. Surprising sweetness, much like the berry smell, that fades away quickly. I think this beer could benefit from a bit more hops to balance out the sweetness.

M: Leaves a dry finish. Kind of mild carbonation that could be a bit higher.

D: I don't know the abv, but it certainly didn't feel strong and the taste wasn't aggressive so I could easily have a few.

Overall, probably great with food. On its own, it lacks in the taste department. Nothing exciting here.

Rich medium gold pour with a small white head, that laces a little. The aroma is lightly fruity with sweet malt and berries under a fragrant blanket. Nice fruity smell, with hints of brown sugar and a nice mild hoppiness to cut through it all. Could do with a little something to tip it into the very good category. Medium-light body and carbonation. Sessionable, but a bit plain.

This one's got the basics covered. Clean and drinkable with a nice graininess, good balance and decent bitterness. Decently study with a medium body. Very sessionable, refreshing brew but not terribly exciting - maybe even a bit on the bland side. Strong point is drinkability and balance.
