Nose: honey barley malts, hints of berries. (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp-micro fizzy, incoming berry maltiness

Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-rounded sweetness, (MAIN) strawberry/raspberry, honey, sweet malt -> astringent tangy acidity

Finish: lingering sour-tangy, soft bitter hops, berry malt off-dry finish.

Summary: Drinks decently with an unexpected berry note to it. Not a whole lot of depth to it though and a bit thin in the mids and finish.
