Pours with a larger than expected head. Color is a pinkish amber that tints the head a light pink. Sour aroma that is difficult to detect in the taste of the beer itself. The fruit flavors are subtle, if not underwhelming.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish orange with a large fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to about an inch. Low carbonation. The aroma is not all that pleasing at first sample. Thereís a pervasive aroma of cooked vegetables and perhaps rancid berries on toast--the breakfast of champions. Flavors are slightly better, but not much. Sweet malt, overripe berries, some grassy notes, a bit of tartness, bready tones, mild earthy hop finish with a bit of herbal notes. Honestly, the flavor of berries that were pilfered from a dumpster in the summer heat is on my mind with every sip. It could be out of date, but I donít see an expiration date on the bottle. Soft carbonation. Fairly clean mouthfeel. Noticeable alcohol warmth. This wouldnít be such a bad beer if they could find something to do with the adverse berry flavors. Itís not one Iíd pour down the drain, but itís nothing Iíll ever buy again.

ganache (5853) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle. Nose musty fruit, getting white noise from the variety blend. Pour a pale pink that gradually takes on an orange and even caramel tone, opaque in the glass and cloudy, slightly ruby, head white and soapy with a faint pink tinge. Taste lightly bitter, lightly sweet bu possibly semi-dry, good fruit, lots of berry with probably a few too many berry seeds, fizzy medium body that conversely ends up a bit too flat. A little alcohol showing but not too much. Have to say I just donít like the recipe, though I love the concept and have had the inspiration before. [2017.06.23: 2.4]

Wow! What a lovely summer beer + cocktail hour beer. It's like liquified raspberry cheesecake but with booze. The lounging babe logo is wonderful. So easy to slug, but no idea it is 7.5%! Dangerous! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

handmuffin (37) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2017
Bottled on 1/3/17. Served from bottle into glass at home. Pours pale rose in color, medium low clarity with short lasting white head. Aroma of red fruit and berry, like strawberry or raspberry jelly, and a mild graininess. Some floral character noticeable as well. No hop aroma detected. Flavor is primarily more red fruit and berry, less definable than the aroma. Finish is dry, almost wine like. Medium light body with medium high carbonation. Overall this beer is underwhelming. The aroma and flavor are both simple somewhat artificial fruit and berry. The dry finish, body and carbonation make it very drinkable. There are very little "beer" characteristics, to the point that if I was handed this I would assume it was a wine cooler. I appreciate the attempt, but feel as though there are better ways to make a fruit and berry focused beer.

Draft. A- Berries, medicinal, sweet. A- Reddish color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Berries, sweet, plastic. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish. O- Too sweet and artificial tasting. For a rye beer it could use a lot more of that.

Slipstream (2608) - USA - FEB 11, 2017
This is unquestionably a fruit beer. Sweet, with lots of strawberry flavor. Not much tartness and a little soap (ehh). I think it is natural but it wanders too close to the badlands ruled by the evil alcopop gods. Some tartness in the aroma. Cute label. Itís well done, and I wish I liked it more than I did, but it needs something. Iíll keep an eye out for more Shortís.

Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle. Pours pinkish amber with a thin white head. Aroma of mixed berries, wheat and grains. Flavor of pale malts, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and had notes of wheat.

2.4
ffaoe (780) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2017
very fruity aromas of mostly raspberry and blueberry. amber/peach and hazy in color with fast fading head. taste is fruity upfront, fades quickly.
