From bottle. Hazy pink pour with no real head or lacing. Fruity aroma and strong fruity berry taste. The 8 ABV well hidden by the fruit. Not particularly sweet or tart. Medium mouthfeel. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Cloudy, amber. Tartness and lots of berry. Blueberry and strawberry with light tartness and light yeast. BrownALEx (457) - Portland, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Nice sour aroma. Strawberry blond pour with a thin white head. Taste is berry all the way, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry seam to be present. Palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, not my cup of beer. A bit too fruity, but it is balanced and drinkable. jsporrer (982) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a clear pinkish red with a thin white ring. Little carbonation and no lacing. Aroma is slightly tart and sweet fruit. With all of the mixed fruits I thought this would be either sweet or sour. It was dry and somewhat harsh. Very disappointing! scarletfire65 (1454) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2016
On tap at First Draft. Pinkish color with a whitish pink head. Lots of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry over a light, crisp, wheat beer. Fruity and girly, but drinkable. No artificiality at all. Tastes like the berries were steeped for weeks. I dunno, I kind of like it.

I’m not sure what a Soft Parade is; to my knowledge, The Doors have never explained. Undoubtedly it’s something gross. Probably scatological. Color is pinkish. Aroma is grainy sweet. Fruity flavor with a lot of berry - as you’d expect - yet it’s not cloying or artificial. Feel is smooth, medium-bodied, and surprisingly warm. This is my introduction to Short’s. I probably should’ve started with some hops. arkurzynski (2406) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
Reddish pink. Nose of cherry berry and wet wheat-like malt. Flavor mild, sweet, tart cherry/strawberry with a bit of rye spice and more wheat ale-like backing. Lingering fruit and bitter rye. Pretty good on a hot day. b33r (875) - Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2016
Light cloudy pink with small head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor have nice sweetness and subtle strawberry and tropical fruits. Easy to drink and refreshing! basaywhat (272) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
12 oz bottle. A slightly hazy red beer with a huge pinkish head. The aroma has strong notes of strawberries, which is smelled far from the glass. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of berries to start off with, leading to a dry lightly tart finish. Not a fan. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2016
From bottle. Clean aroma with nice fruity character, berries but not one particular type identifiable. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Moderate sweetness with winy acidic and berry tartness. Smooth fruity-berry flavor throughout. Just a bit of bitterness and astringency at the finish with nice light fruity-sweet after.
