KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a light reddish orange with a huge (3-4 finger) light pink fluffy head that was mostly lasting and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was all about the berries with a light bread malt and a sweet yeast with notes of dark berries, candi-sugar and a definite Kool-Aid scent. The taste was extremely sweet and a bit malty with a large dose of berries throughout and had a Cherry Kool-Aid finish. The flavor lasted only a short duration being of a candy sweet berry flavored soft drink. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall although very sweet it was a rather refreshing and tasty brew, but basically it dose not resemble any type of brew I have had so far...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours orange pink with some haze. Aromas of berries. Very sweet taste fruity. Almost a malty wine cooler. This is the first craft beer I tasted many moons ago. I liked it then and still do on a hot summer day now.
