UPDATED: SEP 17, 2003 Agreed. It's your girlfriend's beer for when she can't get a Dewey Stevens. Looks like Champale when you pour it. Gotta admit it smells nice. But tastes like a wine cooler with a bit of malt in it. Sweetness is almost saccharine. I mean it would be okay as a hot-weather cooler, but if this is all Miller can come up with in the fruit beer category, New Glarus has nothing to worry about.
On a second tasting, I had to drop this a few more points. Straight out of the bottle, all I get is a vaguely Trix flavored mess. And that's not even seeing the disturbing blue color.

12oz Flasche. Rosé-orange Farbe. Rosa Schaum. Künstliches Beerenaroma. Auch im Geschmack recht künstlich. Hat was von einem schlechten Framboise.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 a cerveja é ideal para mulheres. apesar de ser do tipo Weiss, é adocicada e saborosa com tons de frutas vermelhas.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Nose is red berries, currant, grapes, blackberry. Palate is very Juicy, some artificial berries, otherwise really fresh. Not bad for a macro

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.

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 (6008) - Waterford, 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.
