Smells sweet and slightly of plum. Tastes sweet, but not overly so. This is only slightly bitter and quite refreshing. It’s not bad on a hot day, but it’s far from memorable.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet pear aroma with a nice malt backbone. Flavor is mildly bitter at the start with a nice prickly pear sweetness and a bitter aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burnt orange pour with thin, lasting head and lacing. Pear smacks you right in the kisser after opening. Pear, berries, and other citrus aromas/flavors are the showcase. I thought I would hate this based on the rating, but it’s passable. A bit sweet though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear amber brown. Looks like a Pale Ale in the glass. Fruity berry aroma with a hint of cereal. Dry on the palate. Crisp dry ’raspberry’ flavor to it with not a hint of sweetness. Nutty malt aftertaste. Overall, it’s good and has a bit of complexity to it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent caramelish orange with fizzy eggshell head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells floral and fruity alongside what I assume are notes of cactus. Tastes like it smells, but less hoppy and balanced, with an odd, off-putting tartness. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with a filtered lager crispness. The taste ruins the nose, which isn’t great to begin with.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Too much like purple haze. Too fruity and not crisp or carbonated enough. Raspberry is overwhelming, watermelon waters the flavor down and the kiwi-kind of nose makes it sweet all around. Perhaps adding a more assertive hop or doing this in a pale ale style would make the syrupy flavor more refreshing. Too sweet and swampy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
More fruity than I imagined. Aroma of raspberry and watermelon. Light amber color and watery palate. Fruity flavors with more berry and melon. Maybe some hints of tea. OK I guess.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a clear, amber color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was a touch of sweetness, with notes as cherry and melon, and an odd hint that was ripe, earthy, and didn’t seem to meld well. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was as light cherry juice, with soft bitterness, a bit of tartness, and subtle dryness. Interestingly okay.
