Good coloring. Berry taste. Fruity smell but not too strong. Good beer if you are in the more fruity mood.

One of my favorite beers. Has great fruity and floral notes and not too hoppy. Great on a warm, spring day with salty foods. High alcohol content so sip on it.

Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Pours a hazy, translucent, really reddish mahogany - quite appealing to the eye. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of berries, especially raspberries. Raspberry dominates the flavor, which includes hints of blueberry and strawberry as well as malt and hoppy bitterness. Jazzy, tingly, fizzy texture leaves a lively finish.

This beer is nice and fruity and very refreshing. Good if you don’t like really heavy beers and with a lot of hops. Fruity notes of berries.

I absolutely love this beer and would recommend it to anybody, especially those who aren’t big beer drinkers. This beer tastes really fruity; you can definitely taste all of the berries that are in it. For those who drink a lot of wine, this is the perfect transition beer.

A - The beer pours a hazy red color with a touch of pink mixed in and a big finger of frothy pink colored head. The head fades down extremely slowly leaving behind lots of thick lace. S - The aroma is full of sweet berries with lots of strawberries especially. It is really nice and sweet and tart. T - The flavor starts off with some mellow berry sweetness with a bit more pungent tartness. The sweetness starts to build right away with a touch of grain in the background. Through the middle the sweetness gets quite a bit stronger with lots of strawberry flavor coming through. The finish is a mix of berry flavor with lots of strong tartness and sweetness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a tart and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. I rally like just how sweet and tart it is and how strong the fruit flavor is. It also finishes really strong with some great flavor.

Draft. Blueberry/raspberry and light caramel malt aroma. Reddish amber with moderate head. Sweet berry and caramel malt flavor. Great balance. Alcohol very well hidden. Spectacular.

HopCat in East Lansing. The pour on this beer is the most incredible light ruby color, showing some flashes of gold. There is a decent white head, and decent lacing. The aroma is very heavy with raspberries and blueberries, with a light earthy undertone. The taste starts out great, very raspberry like, then fades through a malty blueberry to a somewhat dry finish. Some booze comes through on the back end, and there is a bit left to be wanted. This beer has so much potential early on, but fizzles a little on the back end.

Beautiful bright and clear beer, with a red color similar to cranberry juice, but a little lighter. No head at all. You know how a port wine clings to the side of a wine glass (is that called legs or something)? Well this beer does the same. Pretty cool. Smells fruity and not beery. I detect mainly raspberry and cherry. Tastes like it smells, wonderfully full of sweet fruit (again raspberry and cherry) and some honey flavor. Not sure if the honey flavor is from actual honey, or if it is from the malt. No detectable hops, but even with all that sweetness going on, it was not cloying at all. Tart raspberry in the aftertaste. Oddly, no detectable alcohol flavor. This is one sneaky beer, weighing in at 11% it is also known as Ol’ Leg Spreader. Nuff said about that!
