Dude. How am I expected to like a beer that plainly says in the RB deScript "brewed special for those LADIES who enjoy their wine."? Iíll give it a shot. How off-putting. [A] Aroma is non-offensive berry. Banana. Strawberry. Pleasant fruit. Without being too rotten, artificial, weak, or up front. [A] Clear amber. Reddish, with pink-white head. [F] Its a fruit beer. Did you expect roast, maybe? No. Fruity, slightly tart flavors. Actually, banana, or yeastiness follows through. Rye, not so much. And the fruit variety is actually, yes, that of an Arbor Mist or MD 20/20 wine. So-so. [P] Bottled, on a hot day, I could probably do this much better than any other fruit beer, period. 9% could catch up quick, as it is not at all noticeable. Drinkable. But, you have to look past the fruit, I guess. Light. Highly carbonated, crisp mouth. [O] Decent fruit beer. One of the few impressions from Shortís brewery Iíve had. And itís no Berry Weiss. So I guess I could have hated this more. But I donít think Shortís needs to worry about its feminine appeal.

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!

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.

Iím not sure what a Soft Parade is; to my knowledge, The Doors have never explained. Undoubtedly itís something gross. Probably scatological. Color is pinkish. Aroma is grainy sweet. Fruity flavor with a lot of berry - as youíd expect - yet itís not cloying or artificial. Feel is smooth, medium-bodied, and surprisingly warm. This is my introduction to Shortís. I probably shouldíve started with some hops.

arkurzynski (2107) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
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!

basaywhat (107) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
12 oz bottle. A slightly hazy red beer with a huge pinkish head. The aroma has strong notes of strawberries, which is smelled far from the glass. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of berries to start off with, leading to a dry lightly tart finish. Not a fan.

Nate (3994) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
From bottle. Clean aroma with nice fruity character, berries but not one particular type identifiable. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Moderate sweetness with winy acidic and berry tartness. Smooth fruity-berry flavor throughout. Just a bit of bitterness and astringency at the finish with nice light fruity-sweet after.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear reddish color, looks like a strawberry cooler. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Tart strawberry nose, flavor is light tart strawberry reminds me of a unsweet wine cooler. Slightly higher ABV is hidden. $2.69 for a 12oz bottle from Julioís Liquors Westborough, Ma.

imdownthepub (12585) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Bottled, 355ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Reddish amber with white head. Phew this is sweet, artificial bubblegum flavours, strawberry, raspberry but in a slightly chemical way. The sweetness continues throughout, aspartame in character. Borderline stuff.
