Had this one on tap for brunch at some big shopping complex outside Dade City, Florida. From notes.

A - Medium golden pour and bright. Mild carbonation. One finger soapy head. Slight lace with a film of retention.

S - Peach, sweet fruits. Very, very mild.

T - Apricots, gentle hop, berries, sweet grain, flavourful but nothing directly up my alley.

M - Mild but good carbonation. Light to medium body. Fruity and short finish.

O/D - Definitely not a standout. Very much a gateway into craft stuff with the obvious fruit addition. Decent, but I probably wouldn't try it again.
