3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dude. How am I expected to like a beer that plainly says in the RB descript "brewed special for those LADIES who enjoy their wine."? I’ll give it a shot. How off-putting. [A] Aroma is non-offensive berry. Banana. Strawberry. Pleasant fruit. Without being too rotten, artificial, weak, or up front. [A] Clear amber. Reddish, with pink-white head. [F] Its a fruit beer. Did you expect roast, maybe? No. Fruity, slightly tart flavors. Actually, banana, or yeastiness follows through. Rye, not so much. And the fruit variety is actually, yes, that of an Arbor Mist or MD 20/20 wine. So-so. [P] Bottled, on a hot day, I could probably do this much better than any other fruit beer, period. 9% could catch up quick, as it is not at all noticeable. Drinkable. But, you have to look past the fruit, I guess. Light. Highly carbonated, crisp mouth. [O] Decent fruit beer. One of the few impressions from Short’s brewery I’ve had. And it’s no Berry Weiss. So I guess I could have hated this more. But I don’t think Short’s needs to worry about its feminine appeal.

Light caramel with light red hues and a flat head. Aromas of cotton candy, raspberries, strawberries, caramel. Flavors upfront raspberries, slight blueberry, straw with a maize aftertaste finish. Lightly sweet with a touch of tart. The fruit flavors are light but very noticeable just not in the most perfect way. I like the authentic fruit flavors!
