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.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2012
(Bottle) Pours muddy brown with some dark red hints. Tiny head. The aroma is both tart and sweet with clear notes of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. The tartness is woodsy and lemon-driven. Some malt is present to back it up. Maybe a whisper of toffee. The flavour is light sweet and light to medium acidic tart with notes of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Discreet maltiness. Buttery hints. Dry on the finish. Medium bodied.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Deep caramel, a little burnt brown sugar hues, moderate fizzy off-white head, dies immediately.   SOunds like a cola in its fiziness, the head at least.   The nose reminds me of the days when I would take 16oz of sweetened strawberries, mixed with ice and vodka... all in a blender.   Very berry on the tongue.   Also pretty alcoholic.   Very fizzy, bubbley.   The Berry aspect is there, but not as bright or sweet as say... New Glarus.   Reminds me of the Founders Blushing Monk without being as heavy or sweet.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Warming alcoholic finish, berry, but not the sweet kind.   Decent, but leaves me wanting Blushing Monk for the same effect but with more fruit flavor.
