wyzzywyz22 (2058) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Hazy reddy-amber pour, with a small off-white head. Sweetish nose with berry fruit notes. Flavour was similar with some raspberry and blueberry alongside a little tartness and some pale malts. Fruit seems somehow artificial and a bit thin overall. I was expecting more here - disappointing.

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.

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 (1075) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3599) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
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.
