Pours a nice strawberry red. Nose is fresh berries. Taste is sweet strawberries followed by a hint of tart raspberries and slight rye kick at the finish. Well played for a 8% beer. Shorts doing what Shorts does well!

jercraigs (8509) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
2015-07-04. Hazy red body with a tiny beige head. Aroma of fruity berries. 6+ Flavour is pleasant fruity berry mix, with no distinct type standing out. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Decent, enjoyable. Dangerously drinkable - I didn’t realize how strong it is! On tap at Grand Trunk, Detroit.

Bottle shared poured a pinkish light orange color with minimal white head. Aroma straight up is blueberries and strawberries. The flavor up front is blueberry followed by strawberry. The warmer it got the more pronounced the strawberry flavor became. Overall quite decent for a fruit beer and I do think wine drinkers would enjoy this.
