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.

On draft Soft parade pours a slightly pinkish yellow with a very thin off white head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is sweet fruit, blueberry and strawberry and wheat. The flavor is wheat, strawberry and blueberry. Overall this beer is average.

JStax (3315) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Draft pour into a tulip glass. Pours a purple red with a pink head of foam. The arom has dark cherry and berry notes. Sweet and fruity taste. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad, really.

dinkle50 (1033) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Clear reddish to pink colored pour with a thin head. Aroma of musty fruit, notably strawberries. Medium mouth. Taste is light overall. Strawberry and hints of medicine. Something really strange about this beer. Melon rind & a strange mustiness.

Thanks DrSilverworm! Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this. I tend to like the style, but the tartness was too much. Worth a shot.

Bottle from Drake’s Party Center. Pours brown with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Wasn’t expecting the rye note on the nose. It kind overshadows the fruit on the tongue but I do get some fruity goodness on the finish. I don’t mind fruit beers that taste like fruit and this could have been bolder.

One of the best fruit beers I’ve had. Plenty of fruit taste but still tastes like a beer. Much better than I expected.

dfearnley (1097) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Blueberry, I guess, but maybe only because it says that on the label. There’s a fruitiness, for sure, but blueberry isn’t quite it. I do get some raspberry and strawberry and I also get hay, pumpkin, and some sourness. Nice clear amber with a wafer thin and ringed white head. A kind of amorphous fruitiness, but I don’t pick out any specific berries.

Ferris (5267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle - Raspberries and plae malts. Clear gold copper with a decent beige head. Light berry, slight tart bite and a pale malt finish. Not too sweet, but also not very interesting.

jcartamdg (2136) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a pinkish orange with a thin white head. Aroma of berries, loads of berries and sweet caramel malt. Taste is sweet, berries, caramel malt and not much else. Not great
