Pours a ligher amber color with a pink tone to it with a pink head. Aroma is strong of berries, mostly raspberry, and not much else. Berry flavor dominates but does have a slight backbone of some malts on the finish. It’s ok for a fruit beer.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle: Pours a clear pale amber color with a pinkish white head. Aroma, raspberry and strawberry, some peach notes. Flavor, strawberry and raspberry, lots of sweet fruity notes, but it’s kinda thin.

Bottle. This beer was kind of a let down. Aroma was pretty berry overall but not much else really came through. Overall seemed more like a juice than anything else. Didnt taste bad at all but not what im looking for in a fruit beer.

b33r (881) - Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Draught at 69 Taps. Orange color with small white head and no lacing. Sweet berry flavor and aroma dominate, with little else going on. Still good but pretty ordinary.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2007
On draught at 69 Taps in Akron. This beer is a mostly clear light reddish-brown color with a medium-thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Sweet berry and malt aroma. Medium-bodied with a tart fruit character balanced by sweet malt and grain flavors. The finish is raspberries and malt and lingers awhile. Overall a pretty good Fruit beer.

GABF 2007: Poured a clear dark brown color. Huge fruity raspberry aroma. It was candy like. Fruity raspberry flavor. Not as sweet as the aroma. Some malt. Dry finish with a medium body.

bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
(Draught) Pours a hazy dark golden (with pinkish undertones) body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of candish berries and syrup with a similar artificial flavor that finishes somewhat dry.

3.1
MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Dark almost brown pour with touches of red, and a nice tan head. Very berry aroma, blackberry, and strawberry w/ some cereals. Avg palate. Fruity pebbles flavor w/ a nestle quick tastes artificial, but smells natural.. blah.
