3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

Bottle courtesy of my friend Lance. thanks! Pinkish colored with a short white head. Aroma is berry jam, ripe berries and tart berries. Taste is berry jam, sweet malt, candied fruit, and tart berries. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more berry notes, tart fruit, strawberry jam and candied fruit notes. Nice!

Best thing about this beer is, by far, the aroma: berries, wheat, wet grain, yeast. Short lived pink head, no lace. Flavorís awful. Reminds me a bit of an antibiotic I had to take for tonsillitis as a kid. Texture is oily. Finish makes me grimace.

I was disappointed. This is a brew that is out of my normal taste so I hate to low rate. I will try it again and re-rate if my taste changes. It is a pretty pour..nice white head dissipates quickly...the color is beautiful pink and clear. The flavor is more grapefruit than berries to my tongue...though not bitter it is not sweet and definitely not flavorful to my palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is mixed berries, particularly blueberries and raspberries. Appearance is hazy dark copper with trace sparkle, 1 1/2 finger-width foamy white head with purple tinge, fair retention and decent sudsy lacing. Taste is strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with soft carbonation and fruity finish. Overall, the berries carry the day, covering up the rye or any other feature.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Straight from the bottle sitting at the campfire. Fruity. Seems like a solid base underneath.

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.
