look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours golden yellow with a two finger foamy head. Dissipates to a light lacing and cap.

S - Sweet aroma of honey and citrus. Very heavy fruits, though they don't all seem to go well together.

T - Sweet honey at first turning into a slightly sour pear, I get a bit of a white wine feel from it. Light yeast flavor in the background throughout.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Good for the style.

O - A decent beer, but not one of my favorites. The odd aromas and the sourness in the flavor throw it off for me. Remove those two problems and it would greatly improve this beer.
