On tap. Pours very yellow, like Budweiser color, incredibly pale. Surprising appearance. The aroma is straight up Blueberry and Raspberry. Very fresh smelling and very pure. Taste is the same, pretty much just berry juice. This is really not my thing at all but if one were looking for a fruit beer you couldn’t go wrong with this or ask for much more. There really isn’t much beer flavor here of any kind and the fruit flavor isn’t mindblowing like something from NG but as far as things go it’s not bad.

What color this stuff has. Like fizzy purple soda. Aroma is light but definitely fruity. Taste is light and berry sweetness. Like berry candy, almost fake sweetness.

Poured hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma of raspberries and strawberries. Started with fruit flavors but faded to water

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a little bit of a thin white head. Aromas are highly fruit... there is no question that this is full of berries. Not much else going on in the nose. Flavor is berry, berry, berry with too much sweetness and berriness. In the finish, this comes across as a little bit too sweet and the berries are overwhelming and slightly artificial tasting.

Bottle from brentk57. Thanks! Hazy super pale golden color. Ugly ass beer. Smells like Crunchberries. Tastes like every fruit essence I have ever had in a beer thrown into a cereal malt like base. Big carbonation, light body, lots of lingering Crunchberries. I liked it.

Draft. Very light gold color. Loads of raspberry to the nose and tongue. Mouth is a little effervescent. A bit fake tasting but still OK.

Had this brew at G.A.B.F. 08’. Aroma is a strong berry scent. Color is a light yellow with fair carbonation and an average head. Wow its like drinking fruit punch Kool-Aid. Its light and refreshing but not a brew I would want to drink.
