Cloudy golden hue with visible yeast particles and a foamy white head. Fruity nose, full of banana and pear with a malty background. The palate is lively and refreshing with a mild sweet maltiness and a clean, dry finish.

clear straw color (the yeast clouds it somewhat). inviting hoppy nose, and a nice fruity tang in the body. somewhat fizzy, and finishes a little dry. overall pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden honey colour, cloudy appearance, lacey white head. Lots of cottage cheese sized floaters. Sweet wheat and yeast, with fresh banana bread aroma. Flavours are quite nice. Light apple and cooked pears with banana. Complemented by a soft carbonation, yeast and some burnt notes. Not as great as I originally thought but it was a nice surprise.

Cloudy amber in color with a white head. Malt and yeast in the nose. Bitter-sweet flavour with a dry acidic finish. I know it's called sparkling, but I'm not into all the carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky straw color,small white head that had a decent amount of hang time,and left a small lace.Malty light fruit aroma with a decent hop presence.The flavor is fairly decent,malty and sort of semi sweet with a mild fruit taste maybe some form of citrus,decent hops flavor.The finish is mild with a malt hop after taste.Pretty good brew IMO and i wouldn't mind having another one for later.Well worth getting if you can find it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very basic, uninspired ale. Average in every way. Nothing bad, but nothing to make me drink again.

After trying one of their extract kits, their pale ale, and now this, I'm thinking I just don't like this brewery. Maybe if I tried a completely different style, if they have one, it could change my mind. Everything seems to have the same yeasty taste that reminds me of the really bad IPA kit of theirs I tried.
I'm not going to go through too much detail, but I will say that while I don't mind sedement in my beer, and I usually like it, this had chunks. Also, the head was non-existant and there was no lace at all.
Tastes okay; a little hops, some citrus hints as well as some grain, but nothing special at all. And I can't get past the yeast taste.
