look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Giant 3 fingers of blush head and a copper/coral clear brew. Unfortunately the head doesn't last long and leaves no lacing - but it's clean and clear with just a few flakes
of yeast floaties.

S: Familiar Unibroue yeast smells, with tart red berries of cassis and raspberries. Dry notes like that of a rose wine, followed with grains and blond malts.

T: Dry and tart up front with tart, similar to rhubarb. Some yeasts followed by some pale malt. Finishes tart & dry with subtle grains.

M: Lots of carbonation pickles up front and a dry enough to suck onto the tongue.

O: It's a light drinker with a mild presences suggestive of a rose or prosecco. Not the strongest offering from Unibroue, but would make a terrific mixed beer cocktail.

T - initial: sour current, orange, cherry, maybe some cranberry. finish is a sour fizziness.

M - high carbonation, low viscosity, fizzy, light, tickles the tongue - very similar to a fruity champagne.

O - Too much carbonation. drinks like a champagne but the flavor isn't as good.
