22oz bottle acquired in trade with ogglethorp (thanks!). Poured a lighter yellow color with a large sized white head. Aromas of berry-liciousness and a little fruity. Tastes of the same with some wheaty/graininess. Berries definitely dominate. Sweet. Like drinking a sweet berry candy. You have to be in the mood for this one!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to miketd: Pours a transparent golden with a thin ring of spotty white head. Nice aroma of fresh strawberries and blueberries. Body starts about average with some mild fructose sweetness and light grainy maltiness before a dull, candy-like finish. Needs more body and balance, but has some decent fruit character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a ligher amber color with a pink tone to it with a pink head. Aroma is strong of berries, mostly raspberry, and not much else. Berry flavor dominates but does have a slight backbone of some malts on the finish. It’s ok for a fruit beer.

Bottle. This beer was kind of a let down. Aroma was pretty berry overall but not much else really came through. Overall seemed more like a juice than anything else. Didnt taste bad at all but not what im looking for in a fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at 69 Taps in Akron. This beer is a mostly clear light reddish-brown color with a medium-thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Sweet berry and malt aroma. Medium-bodied with a tart fruit character balanced by sweet malt and grain flavors. The finish is raspberries and malt and lingers awhile. Overall a pretty good Fruit beer.
