This is a very refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Light bodied, but still a lot going on. Sweetness from the berries, and a little bit of wheat. This beer has a lot of great flavor going on, but nothing seems to really tie together the trifecta of the berry sweetness, the wheaty flavor, and the good old Wisconsin lager. A great concept, decently executed, but a little too watered down to be excellent. Light body, thin feel, lively, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour.

Smells great. Looks very appealing. Way to fruity for my liking...perhaps in smaller quantities with dessert might have been abetter

12 oz. bottle. Aroma of a berry wine cooler. Taste was berries and very very sweet.

Goblincat (394) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Orange-red in color, almost no head, and a nice fruity aroma. The taste comes off like a highly carbonated sweet fruit juice. It doesn’t seem very beer like, more like one of the alcohol punch drinks the hard lemonade people release. I liked drinking it, but it became almost sickeningly sweet toward the end.

Pours a pink-tinged light brown with a weak spattering of white head. Aroma is more wine cooler than beer, as is the flavor, with black rasberries being the predominant component. The malt component is hefty enough to carry the berry sweetness though, and it does not come off as cloying, though the fruit is heavy handed. Just a hint of hops can be detected at the end of the swallow in an attempt to balance. Too sweet and too-unbeer for me.

HourGlass13 (334) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Pours a pink to light red color. Head is pink that fades. Aroma is sweet with heavy berries, like Strawberries, raspberries. Taste very fruity, sweet. Light body. Highly carbonated. Overall very good, well done.

Pours a juicy red, immediate nose of berries. Taste is tart. Not bad but not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured into a shaker. It had a clear reddish color with two fingers of a pinkish head that slowly dissipated. The aroma and flavor was strongly blackberry. It really reminded me of a blackberry wine cooler. While easily drinkable, it has a rather strong berry sweetness.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated Jul 06 15. Strawberry orange color with a quick lasting head. Smells a lot like berries and honey with an emphasis on the berries. Light but smooth body. Huh, I actually pick up the vaguest breaded malt character in the taste but otherwise it is fruity and juicy.
