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

ABV 6%.
Poured into a tulip type of glass. One finger of head, white in colour and thick, that didn't stay for long. Colour is pale golden,slighty haze in my second pour after I shook the bottle a bit. with average activity in the glass.
Sweet aroma. A smell of old bread that thankfully is quite faint and it's cobered by aromas of dark fruits.
Dark fruits like plums and dates also traceable on the taste. You could say it has a sweet taste.
Medium thickness on the body and average carbonation.
Overall, hmm. There are better samples of the type out there, and I know because I have tried some.

Poured from an inch or so above the glass gave this beer a big white head that settles into a pretty nice lacing above a hazy honey golden colored blonde.

When I first took a whiff of this I really didn't get much coming off it so I swirled the glass as I held it close to my nose and this released a lot of light and different aromas. Light hops, grains, grapes, yeast, dark fruits and even lighter of alcohol, spices, and apricots.

A light darker fruits taste, light yeast with some washed out grain malts sneaking in there.

A light dry slightly bitter aftertaste on the medium bodied affair.

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

Pours a clear, dark yellow liquid with a fluffy white head perched atop. Great retention, good lacing.
Smell is malt, citrus, vanilla, cardboard(?), clove and pepper. Nice balance and complexity.
Taste is the same without the light vanilla note.
Medium body though it leans slightly fuller. Medium-light effervescence. Drying, clean finish. Nice brew.

Pours a golden/amber color into my goblet, with a very clingy, overflowing head. Leaves cotton candy like residue as the lacing. There is some re fermented yeast at the bottom. Aroma - Very sweet fruitiness, like watermelon and pear. Yeast and malt character is going to be dominant going by the aroma as well. Taste - very bready, with wheat, banana, kiwi, melon, and candy apple. Very carbonated and medium mouthfeel. A fine, refreshing brew that is 'for anyone.'

1.14/5  rDev -70.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

Appearance: light gold; slight haze; head fades fast

Aroma: metallic; a bit tart; sour apple or grapes

Taste & Mouthfeel: sharp bit on the tongue, very acidic; thin body; below average carbonation, almost flat at times; very short; somewhat vegetal, metallic again

Overall: very unpleasant and bland - like drinking tin; can't even finish it

* Wondering if it was a bad bottle, doesn't seem consistent with other reviews
