Look: Yellow with a slight haze. A nice white head that dissipates fairly quickly.
Smell: Distinct yeast/bread aroma.
Taste: Tastes a lot like the smell with a slight almost IPA bitterness at the end.
Overall: For a guy who prefers dark beers, not bad. A good change of pace beer but wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it. It was a gift from my son who lives in Michigan and I appreciated the opportunity to try it.

Yellow golden body with slight haze, awesome white fluffy rocky head, streams of fine bubbles. Nose is mostly spice, with mild wheat-like malt acting as a backbone. Black pepper is the vastly dominant flavor, with ambiguous spice and yeast following up, faint tang and chalk on the finish. Light-medium bodied, prickly carbonation.
Obligatory yeast, out of control spice, odd tang towards the end... did not care for this one.

Pale yellow color. Smells of yeast and spice. Taste up front is fruity, mild citrus with a backend of pumpkin type spices. Feel is seltzer, carbonation. Too much of a medicinal feel for me.
