Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice orangish straw color with a bubbly white head that dissipates very quickly. Smells of sweet berries, but with some balance with the grain. Has a bit of a tart taste, but it is very good and balanced with the rest of the beer. This light bodied beer is a bit over carbonated, but still goes down real smooth. Overall, an above average beer.
