Draft at the brewery. Almost didn’t try this one bc I’m a raging snob but was much better than expected! Color of blush wine 3
Drier all round no overt fruit no soda, just the slightest whisper of fruit acidity blends well with the malts slight bitterness in the finish. Light body and thoroughly refreshing, no complaint really.

On the patio at O’Hare’s Richmond. Pleasant, hint of fruit aroma. Beautiful in the glass, Still tastes like beer with a hint of fruit, not vice versa. Creamy on the palate and fresh. Def a great patio beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby peach body, with lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, lactose, with a faint fruitiness. Taste is grainy, a slight sweet fruitiness, but also a dry tart element as well, but all of this pretty subtle. Certainly doesn’t taste over sweet or artificial like a lot of fruit beers. Not bad.

Not sure what a huckleberry is supposed to taste like, but this seems like a pretty middle-of-the-road berry flavoured wheat beer. Cloudy pinkish orange pour with a bubbly off-white head. Bread and berry notes, strawberry and raspberry, slightly metallic, medium sweetness and a bit of a tart note.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Pink-red, strongly opalescent color, medium white head and a bit of lacing. Aromas are neutral, hard to distinguish anything really. Maybe a bit fruity. Tastes soury, like berries and also a bit fruity, but nothing besides that. Boring to be honest. Slightly soury aftertaste. Medium carbonation, low body, a bit watery. Overall nothing happens here, watery body, it is refreshing, but it’s just boring... Tastes like a communist-era Polish compote from variety of berries & rhubarb, but much more watery ;)
PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa różowo-czerwona, mocno opalizująca, piana biała, średnia, nieco lejsingu. Aromaty dość neutralne, ciężko coś tu odnaleźć. Może nieco owocowe. W smaku kwaśnawe niczym porzeczki i też nieco owocowe, ale nic poza tym. Pisząc wprost dość nudne. W posmaku nieco kwaśnawe. Średnie nasycenie, niskie odczucie w ustach, dość wodniste. Podsumowując nic się tu nie dzieje, mocno wodniste, co prawda jest orzeźwiające, ale nudne jak cholera... Smakuje jak PRL’owski kompot z różnych owoców, ale znacznie bardziej wodnisty ;)

Not great not horrible. Not offensive but quite boring. Pours a nice pink grapefruit committee. Aromas are mostly wheat and a bit of berry. Flavours are a touch hoppy and a bit tangy from the berries. Well carbonated. Meh.

This beer is strangely thin. It almost tastes like it’s been mixed with water. For a fruity beer, we want to taste it ffs.

On tap @ CRAFT. Sort of an amber pour with white foam. Really not too much fruit to this. Mostly just caramel malt and a bit of jam. Maybe a hint of tartness. Really bland flavor. Watery and sweet. Some caramel and toasted malt/bread. Slight biscuit, grass, and lemon. Maybe some sour fruits.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear blush/pinkish color with a small white ring. Aroma of light fruity esthers and some sweet pale malts. Taste is light fruit, berries and a light sweet pale malt bill with not much on the finish. A touch light but what makes it enjoyable is that it’s not overly fruity and is refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light purple/pinkish pour, with a small off white head.
A distinct malted wheat aroma, with touches of diacetyl, and some random berry juice, and light stone fruit. Low carb, muddy mouth feel. Low bitterness in the finish, muddled flavours, sweet berry juice, buttery malts. Meh.
