2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is obvious of fruit, mostly the berries. It’s hard to rate this beer really, it’s a fruit beer.... lots of berries, nice and sour, gets your girlfriend drunk. A panty dropper, you will. It works, trust me. Not my type of beer though.

Straight from the bottle sitting at the campfire. Fruity. Seems like a solid base underneath.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy ruby red. Looks like grapefruit juice. Thin white head. Aroma is raspberries, blackberries, blueberry, and wheat. Taste is strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and blackberries. Sweet and a bit tart. Wheat and grassy hops as well. Thin to average. Nice and refreshing.

From bottle. Hazy pink pour with no real head or lacing. Fruity aroma and strong fruity berry taste. The 8 ABV well hidden by the fruit. Not particularly sweet or tart. Medium mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice sour aroma. Strawberry blond pour with a thin white head. Taste is berry all the way, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry seam to be present. Palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, not my cup of beer. A bit too fruity, but it is balanced and drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear pinkish red with a thin white ring. Little carbonation and no lacing. Aroma is slightly tart and sweet fruit. With all of the mixed fruits I thought this would be either sweet or sour. It was dry and somewhat harsh. Very disappointing!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at First Draft. Pinkish color with a whitish pink head. Lots of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry over a light, crisp, wheat beer. Fruity and girly, but drinkable. No artificiality at all. Tastes like the berries were steeped for weeks. I dunno, I kind of like it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m not sure what a Soft Parade is; to my knowledge, The Doors have never explained. Undoubtedly it’s something gross. Probably scatological. Color is pinkish. Aroma is grainy sweet. Fruity flavor with a lot of berry - as you’d expect - yet it’s not cloying or artificial. Feel is smooth, medium-bodied, and surprisingly warm. This is my introduction to Short’s. I probably should’ve started with some hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish pink. Nose of cherry berry and wet wheat-like malt. Flavor mild, sweet, tart cherry/strawberry with a bit of rye spice and more wheat ale-like backing. Lingering fruit and bitter rye. Pretty good on a hot day.

Light cloudy pink with small head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor have nice sweetness and subtle strawberry and tropical fruits. Easy to drink and refreshing!
