1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bot. Looks great in the glass, all pinkish light brown and all. has a good fruit tart beer nose about it. Oooooo, my. This stuff comes across like grain alky fruit pop o the palate. Better take it easy on this. Whew. QUITE STRONG, QUITE VOLATILE, QUITE IN YER FACE. Difficult medicine all round. The looks and nose were a decoy. High gravity doesnít even begin to describe this brew. Come to think of it, it starts to come across like a fruity barley wine in the end. Will kick your ass if yer not careful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, the pour is reddish pink, clearly made with fruit, the head it white with pink hues. The aroma is bread yeast, a little berry and sweetness. The taste is pleasant, berries are abundant but not overpowering, they compliment the ale. Being an imperial ale, it calms the sugars from the berries and makes the beer taste like a ale with berries in the background. In the finish is sweetness, strawberries yeast, and almost a slight ice cream flavor. With all this makes this seam overly sweet it is not, it is balanced and the flavors pull through with the right amount of sweetness. The carbonation is strong with a thin mouthfeel.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark salmon color with a large foamy pink-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet strawberry jam. The flavor was sweet strawberry, cardboard, yeast and turned a bit dry at the end. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Blindfolded, I think raspberry would be the only fruit I could pick out in this but thatís okay; I like raspberries fine. This is sort of a deep orange color w/ maybe a hint of red to it w/ a big, fairly creamy head. The raspberry hits me up front but isnít over-the-top or anything, allowing for a good bit of cookie-like malt character to come out as well. This is full bodied and creamy w/o being sweet or heavy feeling. Combined w/ a touch of acidity from the fruity and it makes for a nice, refreshing experience. It is kind of annoying they say this is for "ladies" since I donít see why anyone canít enjoy a nice fruit beer but, say what you will, I think Shorts nailed exactly what they were going for on this one.

From beer club. Pours murky dull red with medium foamy white head. Aroma and taste of berries slight carbonation. Pretty much what I expected from the brewers description but it's just a little too fruity and sweet for me.

Bottle. From Mom. Pours a pinkish amber color with fast dissipating head. All kinds of berry aroma on the nose. Average carbonation. Medium sweetness. A nice blend of light fruit flavor with some malts. Not overly fruity. A slight warming alcohol too. Not too shabby.

This is a really good beer. This is like a dessert beer. I could drink that fruity beer for a long time with a nice piece of cheesecake.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt, berry, and a little yeast. Clear medium amber with a pink hue, head that quickly drops to a thin ivory rim, no lace. Taste is malt and light berry that moves abruptly through light fizz to a bitter cardboard finish. I canít accept that this is what the brewer intended. This one starts okay, but makes a quick descent into hell. Only drank 4 ozs. of it, which was too much.
