2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy pink with a white head. Aroma of berries, dough, honey, and wheat. The malts are fruity and sweet,but are mostly overwhelmed by the strong berry flavors. Good hot weather beer. Felt like I was drinking berry juice with a beer aftertaste.
The best of the fruit flavored beers I've ever tried. But that's not saying much as I've hated all the others. Drinkable on a summer day if you're in the mood and want something light. Wife likes it quite a bit

Bottle. Nose is red berries, currant, grapes, blackberry. Palate is very Juicy, some artificial berries, otherwise really fresh. Not bad for a macro dlihcsnatas (763) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Sorta reddish pink with a slightly pink head. Smell and taste is dominated by the berries. Really loving this one on this hot and humid day. Kinda wish I had gotten more than just one six pack now. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Light blue red in color. Berry upfront with some wheat and then overall sweetness. brown831 (2) - Burkesville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 30, 2017 does not count
Pours beautiful reddish hue color. Small to no head. Fruity powerful aroma. Taste is an over powering fruit flavor, mixture of berries etc. with little to no beer flavor. Taste more like a fruity wine cooler than beer. Dissatisfied with the brand as they normally brew great beer. Will never buy it again.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a shade of copper with a reddish hue and a very small white head. The aroma is an overpowering very sweet berry smell. The taste is way to much berry and not enough beer. An average beer. superspak (5797) - Michigan, USA - APR 14, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/14/2016. Pours lightly hazy orange/pink/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of tart blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, cherry, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of berries, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of tart blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, cherry, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity/tannic tartness and light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, cherry, wheat, cracker, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of berries, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/tart/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitter/tartness as well. Medium carbonation and light bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly acidic/tannic, and lightly grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice fruit wheat beer. All around good balance and robustness of berries, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Originally rated on 6/8/08. The third of my sampler pack. it poured a deep amber slightly brownish color. The aroma of elder, black and raspberries was almost artificial. It was very sweet more like a wine cooler than a beer. coachd (888) - Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Strong loganberries and blackberries in the aroma with a seltzer like quality to it. Reminds me of that Clearly Canadian drink that was popular in the ’90’s. Cloudy reddish color with a white cap of foam. The taste is also like seltzer with a slight sour quality at the end. The aftertaste is not very good. Effervescent palate, very drinkable. I have to take my craft beer hat off when reviewing this one. This beer is not bad if you’re only drinking one. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
I think all of Leinenkugels’ fruit beers are the same: fruity and delicious, but leave you wishing they had something more distinguishing than which fruit is in this particular beer you’re drinking at that moment.
