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.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark salmon color with a large foamy pink-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet strawberry jam. The flavor was sweet strawberry, cardboard, yeast and turned a bit dry at the end. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Blindfolded, I think raspberry would be the only fruit I could pick out in this but thatís okay; I like raspberries fine. This is sort of a deep orange color w/ maybe a hint of red to it w/ a big, fairly creamy head. The raspberry hits me up front but isnít over-the-top or anything, allowing for a good bit of cookie-like malt character to come out as well. This is full bodied and creamy w/o being sweet or heavy feeling. Combined w/ a touch of acidity from the fruity and it makes for a nice, refreshing experience. It is kind of annoying they say this is for "ladies" since I donít see why anyone canít enjoy a nice fruit beer but, say what you will, I think Shorts nailed exactly what they were going for on this one.

From beer club. Pours murky dull red with medium foamy white head. Aroma and taste of berries slight carbonation. Pretty much what I expected from the brewers description but it's just a little too fruity and sweet for me.

Bottle. From Mom. Pours a pinkish amber color with fast dissipating head. All kinds of berry aroma on the nose. Average carbonation. Medium sweetness. A nice blend of light fruit flavor with some malts. Not overly fruity. A slight warming alcohol too. Not too shabby.

This is a really good beer. This is like a dessert beer. I could drink that fruity beer for a long time with a nice piece of cheesecake.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt, berry, and a little yeast. Clear medium amber with a pink hue, head that quickly drops to a thin ivory rim, no lace. Taste is malt and light berry that moves abruptly through light fizz to a bitter cardboard finish. I canít accept that this is what the brewer intended. This one starts okay, but makes a quick descent into hell. Only drank 4 ozs. of it, which was too much.

An ok fruit beer. Aroma was decent. All types of berries with a little funkiness. Pour was a beautiful hazy dark pink/light purple with a one finger off white head. Taste started out good. Not too sweet but full of strawberry and raspberry mostly. Weird thing is in midsip and after the swallow, the flavor disappeared and almost turned to water. Very odd for a beer that started out so strong. Nice strong carbonation helped.
