On tap at Sunset Bar & Grill in Allston, MA. Reviewed from fresh notes.

A - Good medium amber color. One finger of light brown head that stays somewhat throughout.

S - Floral, with hints of fruit. I can absolutely understand the name of it now. This is the most floral beer I think I've ever experienced.

T - Once again, very floral, with hints of (very subtle) fresh fruits. Unfortunately for this beer, there is a slightly unpleasant bitterness at the finish that I wasn't expecting that detracts.

M - Good carbonation, good mouthfeel. I like the way this beer feels in my mouth throughout, but after I swallow, the finish and aftertaste are not doing it for me.

D - Good drinkability, can't taste the alcohol. Very solid brew, but I wish it was more evened out, as the finish is what makes this beer get all around 4s from me.
