explosivedog (909) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 29, 2017
330ml bottle (dated 2015). Pours dark dull pink with a light pink fizzy head. Aroma has that fruity yoghurt thing going on that fruit lambics do. Boysenberry up front, raspberry, cranberry, little brioche, some vinegar. Finish is all sweet red wine, with lots of berry character. Really pretty nice.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy maroon/purple with rapidly settling pink head, no lace. Aroma is huge berry, boysenberry, cranberry, and fruity, quite sweet. Flavor is big berry, boysenberry, mildly tart, with a mild sweet and nutty malt, yeasty finish. One dimensional, berry is very dominant. Soft carbonation, medium body, and juicy, sticky texture.

Patrickctenchi (6509) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours garnet, with a light pink head. Tart berry, wheat aroma. Dry, tart, boysenberry flavour. Not exactly a favourite taste, but pretty well done. Smooth, tart, solid.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours a beautiful reddish pink with a big ol rise and fall head.

It smells a bit like bakers yeast right up front... but it gets fruitier with some berries and red apple... but its not a sweet smelling beer at all.

The flavor is tart with some berries & a light but ever present earthy bitterness. The beer is largely dry with a nice lingering berry character in the finish.

deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Pours a near clear ruby red with a near white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of bosenberry that is slightly tart and not much else. Flavor is full of boysenberry that starts sweet and finishes with a decent amount of tartness. A bit one note.

seems to be a lot of love for this here? not sure about that. its nice to be a bit different but that artificial berry on lager doesnt do much for me at all.

Oddly tannic grape juice. Slightly astringent and very grapey. A bit perfumey and sweet with a thin palate. Strange stuff.

MrBeerFanatic (1051) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2013
Pours a dark red which resembles red wine with a medium carbonated head and body. Aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, and cork/wood. Flavors of sour boysenberry, slight raspberry, and light cork. Has many elements in the flavors of dry wine. Medium sour, very lightly sweet, dry and not to complex. The fruity flavors of the berry come through well all around. I prefer more of a sweeter fruit beer than dry. Still a good crisp refreshing beer. Perfect for summer.
