Golden Color, berry aroma (Marion berry and other berry flavors). Slight berry taste, more bitter than sweet. A wheat beer flavored with berries but still has maltyness to it. Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2001
Very strong fruity flavors, but not very sweet, which is a plus. On the other hand, I don't think I like marionberry. It tastes, well, funny. It's not a bad idea for a beer, just not my cup of tea (or, mug of beer, as the case may be). Looks and smells good, though, and easy drinking.
