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.

Draft @ Shorts. Pours a hazy orange/pink/amber color with a medium sized pinkish head. The aroma was very fruity; strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, thrown together and mixed with a touch of sugar. The flavor opens with the same burst of fruit; berries that have been freshly picked, mild sweetness, and a slight herbal quality. Midway the fruits fade and the finish is dry pale malt and slightly bitter. Medium-full bodied. The alcohol remains hidden throughout.

<i>Tasting at Papsoe</i>
Hazy reddish color; creamy head. There is a bad aroma of fresh printed magazines, glue; and light fruits. In the flavor, some bitter side clashed with the tart/fruity elements. Confused. Bad.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Hazy amber pour, some reddish brown hues. Fresh creamy berry aroma. Nice and sweet. Fresh sweet/tart berries, creamy sweetness. Lightly bitter fruity finish. Spritzy carbonation. Lingering fresh fruit. Very tasty, but my against the grain rating is a testament to how much I love fruit beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy reddish with a rough, off-white head. Sweetish cherry-like aroma. Medium body with distinct raspberry notes. Dry and somewhat astringent bitter finish. Kinda funny that I pick up cherries and raspberries while it’s actually three other berries it’s made from. 311008
