3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of pure blackberries, a lot of rasberries, a hint of black currants and some hay and grass in the mix with a touch of yeast - nice very fruity smell, even on the cork. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a pungent raspberry and blackberry flavours coupled with some malt, alcohol, hay, grass, hops and a kick of yeast. Aftertaste shows pretty much only fruit, but some light hay and grass notes are there - sort of like a glass of champagne mixed with fresh berries. Overall, a decent beer, if interesting, but the combination doesnít show too well to me - Iíd rather have a fruitier beer with more malt or a dry beer with barnyardie flavours and less fruit notes. Still, great to try and good if you like dry fruit beers with more of a saison texture and feel, but a pungent fruit note. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 04-January-2013 for US$4.99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2013.

Bottle. One of the most inviting smelling beers Iíve opened in a long, long time ... full of fresh springy sweetness and floral appeal. Sudsy and light colored, this isnít what I expected for a beer labeled "breakfast" but what the heck. I guess itís more juice than coffee. Drinks with a beautiful herbal character, sweet with cherries and light grass, this is good stuff. Delish. (#5274, 10/1/2013)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: Draft. It pours a hazy, light amber color with a small white head. Odd nose that is very fruity. The flavor is sweet with notes of grain and fruit that I canít quite place. Like some sort of cherry strawberry mix. Light body. While itís not offensive, itís not my mug of beer.

0,15l on tap @ OlutExpo 2013. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is some malts with loads of cherries. Flavor is malts and artificial cherries. Not bad, just not my cup of tea.

Light haze on this gold beer, tiny white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry pale malt. Mild minerals. Touches of sweet apple and bubblegum ester. Semi dry finish. Itís all quite acetic and estery but oddly, quite drinkable!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not for me. This has a fine aroma of fruit or flowers, that moves to a sherbet. Then you get a mouthful of something that is chemical concoction between bubble gum and something sour. very short palate, no length of cary, very thin. It looks great in the glass, and the packaging is superb. However looks and appearance donít match and this fails the crucial taste test.

Unclear yellowgolden in color with a small whitish head. Bit of hay, some pineapple in aroma. Quite fruity indeed. Taste has got same strong notes of pineapple. Would suite well as a morning juice perhaps, atleast considering the overwhelming notes of pineapple thatís present in this one.í

Bottle from Hop City Birmingham - pours clear gold, very, very aggressive foaming. When I removed the cage from the bottle, the cork hit the ceiling seconds later. The bottle had been sitting in the fridge for a couple days, so I was quite surprised by the show. Aroma reminds me of cherry limeade from sonic. Cloyingly sweet. Weird.
