Bottle:
Clear very light copper, a little bit of head forms, but does fade to no bubbles at all before too long.
Nose is floral, minty, and even a bit of bubble gum. I don't get much sour, and I assume it's the gin/juniper comes across as minty to me. The rose hips leading to that bubble gum note?

Taste is different than the nose, and the tartness is definitely there. It starts out a little funky when combined with the cucumber notes in the watery opening. It grows in pucker nature, becoming tart and making up for a barely tickling light carbonation. End tastes are a mix of pine and mint, or a generic evergreen flavor, more or less.

Subtle beer that has definite flavors being offered up - they just aren't whacking you upside the head. A nicely made beer, I feel - and I like how the additions work with the base beer.
