look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - one inch white head, yellow is color almost orange

S - sweet smell of fruits, wheat

T - very strong taste of wheat and bread, very tart fruits including peach, almost like a hard cider but less sweet and more carbonated

M - very bubbly and carbonated, tart and sour in the mouth

O - I found this beer hard to drink because it was very carbonated and tart, almost reminded me of a mix between a soda and hard cider. It was very unique to say the least. I couldn't drink more than one, but for its originality I think it is average to good.
