COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
• Sexy penetrable fruit intensity for the experienced and novice
• Beer Type: High Gravity Ale fermented with blueberries, strawberries and blackberries

Imperial Soft Parade is a gourmet specialty pour that is brewed with toasted rye flakes and two-row malted barley. Loaded with pureed strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, we refer to this fermented potion as a fruit infused rye ale. The result is a refreshing fruit delicacy that’s easy to drink, appealing to look at, and finishes dry.

Red/orange pour with a small beige head. Aromas of malts and lots of berries. Flavor is similar. The berry flavors really mingle well together and you can taste each one in the beer. Not overly sweet either. Abv is totally hidden. Pretty tasty!
