I absolutely love this beer, if you can call it that. It hardly tastes like one. Upon opening a bottle, you’re instantly consumed by a crisp scent of what smells like fresh, carbonated berry soda. The head when poured is very thin, the aroma is crisp and refreshing, with an overwhelming berry scent, it’s hard (for me) to tell how hoppy/malty this beer is exactly. Overall, i love this beer on a hot day, better than Linenkugels Summer Shandy for said season, in my opinion. Is a bit expensive also.

Bottle into a larger glass. Pour is a light purple. Aroma is a sweet berry. Taste is sweet almost a cooler in stead of a beer. Finish is smooth and crisp.

Really, really, really, really sweet. Like soda sweet. Berry aroma is on the same level as koolaid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml embossed twist off bottle. Rozy pink color, aroma of kool aid cooler. Falvor is berries, hint of honey flavoring, wheat. This is one of the best shitty fruit beers out there. And the original.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Amber and clear appearance with purple hues and a lacy white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of berries and artificial sweeteners. Similar flavor, sweet, fruity and a little syrupy. Light bodied and pretty easy to drink at first. It’s just a little too sweet after a few drinks, though. Meh.

Old rating from 2006. Bottle from Old Town. Big blueberry and strawberry koolaid aroma with a slight hint of wheat. Tastes almost like a jones soda but still refreshing with a lot of carbonation. It is what it is, but at least it’s done well for what it is.

Pours a pinkish amber color with a off white head. The aroma is berries mainly. The flavor is the same, very fruity.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium red amber with a thin rim head and no lace. Taste reminds me of a framboise, but without the body or the nice edge. There may be malt, but it is hardly present. There is also tart raspberry, which makes up nearly all the malt. Maybe it’s the beer equivalent of all those wine coolers.

So this beer is very good when it first touches your palate. If you like fruity beers it's good and tastes almost like a fruity juice. But as soon as that fruity taste goes away, the taste of wheat overwhelms your tongue. Like you're chewing on a stalk of wheat. It's bad.

another backlog review...kind of a weird one here, but i like it better than their other wheat i’ve had. the aroma is more enticing and the feel isn’t quite as overly carbonated. best part? not a drainpour.

Transfer from Ba review on 9-28-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy pinkish-purple color with a hint of an orange reddish color and a big billowy pink colored head. The fizzy head fades rather slowly over time as big carbonation bubbles pop within the head. Once the head fades away it leaves some rather nice foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big and sweet. Right upon opening the bottle you can smell it. Its biggest aroma is that of a raspberry and blackberry smell. Mixed with these smells are some other berry notes of strawberry and even a little bit of current. A grain and wheaty aroma as well as a bit of yeast are there as well, giving the beer an overall very berry and slightly grainy smell overall. Taste – The taste is hugely sweet with tons of sugary raspberry and strawberry. The flavors are mixed with a blackberry like sweetness as well as a bit of lemon and honey. There are some lighter wheat and malt flavors that develop more toward the middle and a very light herbal flavor that develops at the end. These malt and herbal flavors are very light overall however, being overshadowed by the sweet fruit flavors. Overall the brew is very cloying and due to the lighter malt base, the beer has, and leaves, a very wine cooler like flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a higher carbonation level. The higher carbonation is nice for the very sweet and fruity flavors of the brew, although a bit of a thinner body may have been more fitting for the sweet wine cooler characteristics of the beer. Overall – From what I have tasted this is pretty much a wine cooler. If you want something very sweet and lower in alcohol this may be it, but if looking for something that tastes anything like a beer then you may want to stay away.
