A: Pours a soapy and foamy finger head. Color is an opaque rotten orange. Lots of yeast particles floating around. Lacing is nice.

S: Pungent smell mixed with raspberries and other berries. Wheaty at the end. Slightly fake smelling

T: Berry flavored Bud lite with slightly more taste

O: Easy to drink while watching football. A basic beer
