Definitely surprised by this one. Aroma is quite fruity, with raspberries and strawberries the predominate fruits, followed by malt and rye with a hint of yeast. Flavor is fruity, but the fruit is very fresh and not sugary or overwhelming. Alcohol is well covered. Many fruit beers tend to be not palatable...with the fruit either being overdone or tending towards an artificial flavor. This one is very drinkable!

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.

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 (5005) - 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.

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

Hazy bright red amber pour. Aroma of wheat and raspberries. Taste is wheat and berries, slightly tart.

czar (4688) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
pours cloudy orange with a small off-white-pinkish head, some retention and shy lacing. fruit salad juice - rasp and strawberries standing out, very fruity, rosé wine - zinfandel-ish, light astringency - like when chewing raspberry leaves, if at all normal, some fruit jam, slightly cheezy, light citric notes, but also few lactic notes. moderately low carbonation - slightly lacking, light to medium body - oily and thick, slightly astringent and spicy-herbal-grassy finish. quite close to fruit wine or rosé zinfandel - conclusive experiment - boozier than wine though.

From a bottle. Just effusively a Michigan beer in so many ways. Bold and strong flavor, but that flavor is sweet and juicy. No alcohol burn or aftertaste despite high ABV. A very sneaky and well crafted ale that happens to have fruit in it.

Tap. Semi opaque amber red. Small head, decent lacing. Berry centric perfume with a healthy amount of raspberries and strawberries. Like sniffing jam. Light wheat behind. Taste continues the berry parade. Jam and wheat. Wheat and jam. You get the idea. Toes the line between fruity and cloying.
