1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Agreed. It's your girlfriend's beer for when she can't get a Dewey Stevens. Looks like Champale when you pour it. Gotta admit it smells nice. But tastes like a wine cooler with a bit of malt in it. Sweetness is almost saccharine. I mean it would be okay as a hot-weather cooler, but if this is all Miller can come up with in the fruit beer category, New Glarus has nothing to worry about.
On a second tasting, I had to drop this a few more points. Straight out of the bottle, all I get is a vaguely Trix flavored mess. And that's not even seeing the disturbing blue color.

Pours orange pink with some haze. Aromas of berries. Very sweet taste fruity. Almost a malty wine cooler. This is the first craft beer I tasted many moons ago. I liked it then and still do on a hot summer day now.

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

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
