I donít drink many fruit beers so Iím not sure how to rate this. Very sweet with a berry flavor that doesnít blend well with the hops. Tastes artificial. Ok for a summer drink but Iíd rather drink a cooler.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy reddish, orange, amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have berries and pale wheat malts, almost candied sweet, seems a touch artificial, pass in the future.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of fruit, hay and cream. Cloudy red amber with a bit of head. I taste raspberry sherbet, club soda, a bit of wheat and earth in the aftertaste. Lotsa carbonation. An interesting summer brew - seems more of a malt beverage than beer, but not bad.

This is the perfect beer if you are fond of drinking Robitussin or other cough medicine.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE REVIEWED: May 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Lindemanís flute... OCCASION: NFL draft, day three--building the future (again)... APPEARANCE: slightly hazy, slightly bubbly light amber body with reasonably creamy white head; lacing forms icicles... AROMA: immediate raspberry that evokes cough syrup and Valentineís candy hearts... PALATE: a chiasmused mullet in mouthfeel--fizzy party up front, swift, flat drop at the throat; refreshing but also awkwardly lingering...TASTE: cranberry, raspberry, and malty--not offensive; like an Italian soda but extra sweet due to the malt; refreshing, but undesirably tart...OVERALLL: this is at home on the deck in the heat, or at a party where the other beer choices are pedestrian...not sessionable, and not worth a close-up here....

12 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy pinkish orange colour with a small beige head. Very sweet aroma of berries and a hint of wheat. Very sweet flavour of artificial berries, syrup and a touch of wheat. Tastes a lot like a wine cooler. Too sweet for my liking.

12oz bottle 5/02 (Old Notes)-Pours a pinkish amber with a small head. Aroma of berries, wheat, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is fairly good but a bit too sweet. Wife loves this beer cause it doesnít taste like beer.

Iíve had this a numerous amount of times over the years and it never changes.
Hereís my notes on it.
I poured it into a pint glass.
The appearance was a ruddy almost brown to purple color with a less than one finger white foamy head that fizzles immediately. Boy, that wasted no time in dieing, ok, well, if anything, Iíll proceed. The lacing, well, ok, there wasnít much there at all no matter how many times Iíve had this beer.
The smell, ok, well it had the "berry"-ness that it says it has on the bottle. Is this authentic? Hmmm...Iím not exactly sure and leave it at that.
The taste was exceptionally sweet but added a decent tart blackberry-ness to it. Thatís pretty much all I can say for honestyís sake.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionable quality running about it. The carbonation is fairly smooth.
Overall, for the most part, I guess its a somewhat smooth drinking fruit beer. Would I have this again? Probably not, there just seems something that Iím not exactly getting with this one and I canít quite pick it out no matter how many times I have this beer. Weird, but Iíll leave it at that.
