2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown-red with a very small light pink head. Aroma of a mixture of sweet berries (esp raspberry and strawberry) and also some odd stale malt notes. Prunes at the end. Flavor is sweet at first and then gets more acidic and pruney in the aftertaste and itís pretty nasty. Very sugary and nasty malt sweet.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 11/20/11
Aroma: The is all berry fruitiness, raspberry seems to be the most prevalent
Appearance: It pours a pink-orange color with a small, fizzy, off-white head
Flavor: The taste is heavy sweet, with, like the nose, lots of sugary berry fruitiness
Palate: The mouthfeel is sticky/sugary, nearly cloying, and the carbonation is soft, almost flat
This is a fruit beer pure and simple. It achieves that goal. It seems others found more complexity, but I did not. I didnít get any sour or tart flavors, just sweet berries. It drinks pretty easily, but it leans cloying on the aftertaste. Not terrible, but too one-dimensionally sweet for my palate.

Has an ale ever ruffled the feathers of so many reviewers on this site? I give it praise for that alone. It is the tartest ale Iíve ever had and that wins it points. I respect this over the top bid. Unfortunately, in the end the sweet grape soda flavor beats out the dry tart ale character.

A typical fruit beer minus the strong aroma. Aroma was weak but consisted of stale fruit. Pour was a flat bubbleless brown with no head and very murky. Taste was very flat and watery. Tasted like a watered down juice box drink for kids. Blah.

For a fruit beer it was not terrible, but I will not try it again. I got this as a taster, because it is not worth the price of a pint. Seemed to me to have a fairly tart/alcohol flavor.

A beer that sounds like a childrenís cereal and looks like a sparkling wine. Great! Pours a pinkish peach color with an ultra thin white head that is gone immediately. No real lacing is evident. Fruity aroma. Light-bodied and crisp with a sweet fruit flavor of berries and Starburst. The finish is very bubbly and tart. I didnít finish the glass.

Picked this one up for my wife (trying to edge her into beer by starting with fruity ones)... Color is pink and cloudy. Yeasty and wheat-like aroma. Flavor is of mixed berries and is quite tart. Doesnít really taste like beer at all (which is probably why my wife drank it so fast!). Interesting beer and is actually somewhat refeshing. Different than other fruit flavored beers Iíve tried.
12 oz bottle (best before 9/24/2006), $1.35 from The Party Source.

Pours an amber color with a pink head. Aroma is terrible, berries and caramel was about all I could get from it. Blueberries are pretty strong on the flavor with other berries and caramel malts. This stuff is just not that good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours a clear golden orange color with a slight pinkish hue. Has a minimal off-white head. Aroma has a bit of mustiness to it along with noticeable cranberry. Flavor is very sweet and dominated by more cranberry and raspberry notes. Reminds me more of a cranberry juice than a beer.
