2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 Bottle. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a small white fizzy that had no retention at all and no lacing to speak of. The aroma hits the nose right off the bat with a strong dose of berries then light grain malts and a light sweet yeast, and not much else. It tasted very lightly sweet with hints of berries from the beginning to end with the flavor fading very rapidly after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall nothing special at all about this brew except the berry flavor. I felt like I was drinking flavored carbonated water!!

i’ve tried this a couple times and decided it’s totally avoidable other than a very soft mouthfeel that doesn’t seem to fot the beer, but is there nonetheless. weak wheat and a nice refreshing sweet tart berry aspect. ok."

An orange hazy color. Didn’t get much head, but there is carbonation. There’s a hint of sweetness and it is a mouthful, but if I down it...I can reclaim some of the flavor. In slow sips, not so much. I would drink again, but have had better.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tastes like a cheap soda. Aroma of olives. Very strong berry flavor but without a natural taste. Slight bitter aftertaste. Doesn’t linger on the tongue. I appreciate interesting flavors in beers/ales, but this wasn’t one of them.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear rich-looking medium amber, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is wheat malt that has a light, but definite, berry overtone. Everything is markedly understated, to the point of being thin and watery. Simple thirst quencher, not much more.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from a 12 oz. bottle brought by a rep into Boulders on Broadway. Pours a pale clear gold with a small white ring. Notes of sweet berries, sugars, and wheat. Not much to it; artificial in character. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Not terrible, but not my thing.
