Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a fruit aroma that is not overpowering, fairly inviting. Appearance- the beer is an amber color with an average head Taste-has a muted fruit flavor, but i do not care for the taste of this beer. Palate- this is a thin bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall- I do not care for this at all and I do like fruit beers overall.
