This pours a semi-clear reddish color with a slight white head. The scent is fruity, but it’s not as strong as you would think for the style of beer. The taste is kind of a disaster with the clash of fruit with the “high gravity ale.” This essentially tastes like a cheap 40 that someone dumped day old fruit juice in. It’s hard to pick out the blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. This is something they really need to take back to the drawing board and I think eliminating the high gravity ale is a starting place. Finishes with a slight raspberry taste and chalky after taste.

I am torn on this one. This reminds me of a few other Shorts beers where I had to have a few before I reached a decision. I only had a sample, so will try to find a single bottle. It poured an interesting pinkish color. A fruit beer with a sour finish. Supposedly high alcoholic content but cannot taste it.

Bottle bought at Ölbutikken in May 2013.
Clear ruby red with a small head. Sweet aroma and taste of strawberries, bread, notes of earth and light blueberries. Soft and very easy to drink. 8% alcohol? Impossible to notice that.

Aroma is raspberry, parfumed and artificial. Taste the same. Sweet, no bitterness. Like red sodapop.
Thin body, watery. Waste of money..

Easy drinking fruit punch.... or beer. Not much smell. Pours reddish purple. Thin white head. Poured in pint glass. Taste is straight BlackBerry, strawberry, a little tart, carbonated juice. Beer.... ehhh... but so easy to drink on a hot day.

Pours a clear amber body with a fairly small head. Smells of blueberry and raspberry, not too strong, but a soft malt and fruity aroma. Tastes of berries and malts, Overall a fun drink with plenty of flavor
