2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sparkling clear amber-gold with a decent dense white head. Very citrus-fruity aroma. Also lots of berry. Interesting flavors that clsoely mirror the aroma, citurs, berries, and all that, but it really falls flat about half way through. THis flatness carries over to the palate, which is very soft and borderline watery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, clear peach-gold. Nose is very fruity, peachy with lots of berries, intriguing ctiric character, has some real IPA-esque aromas. Berry and citrus pops into the mouth at the initial flavor, then some sweetness. Flavor definitely drops off a bit, a bit of breadiness at the end, but the fruit burst at the start is nice enough to carry it through. Nice palate as well, sticky and coating.
