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."? Iíll 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 Shortís brewery Iíve had. And itís no Berry Weiss. So I guess I could have hated this more. But I donít think Shortís needs to worry about its feminine appeal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy citrusy ruby hue with a thin off white cap. Fruity nose thatís a touch citrusy but also has berries and melon and apple and more berries, a touch of honey--but isnít super sweet ok the nose. Crisp bright pale malty base for a flavor, a little bready, but sweet with strawberry and apricot and melon and berries. Interesting but a bit one dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bright berry aroma with strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry with a little bit of rye and light vinous notes. Pours pinkish-amber with about one finger of white head that burns off quickly to leave a bit of retention and decent lacing. Starts with tart berry flavors with a little bit of earthiness from the rye. Finishes a bit dry with white wine flavors as well as the berry sweetness. Nice, refreshing brew.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bot. Looks great in the glass, all pinkish light brown and all. has a good fruit tart beer nose about it. Oooooo, my. This stuff comes across like grain alky fruit pop o the palate. Better take it easy on this. Whew. QUITE STRONG, QUITE VOLATILE, QUITE IN YER FACE. Difficult medicine all round. The looks and nose were a decoy. High gravity doesnít even begin to describe this brew. Come to think of it, it starts to come across like a fruity barley wine in the end. Will kick your ass if yer not careful.

From bottle, the pour is reddish pink, clearly made with fruit, the head it white with pink hues. The aroma is bread yeast, a little berry and sweetness. The taste is pleasant, berries are abundant but not overpowering, they compliment the ale. Being an imperial ale, it calms the sugars from the berries and makes the beer taste like a ale with berries in the background. In the finish is sweetness, strawberries yeast, and almost a slight ice cream flavor. With all this makes this seam overly sweet it is not, it is balanced and the flavors pull through with the right amount of sweetness. The carbonation is strong with a thin mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark salmon color with a large foamy pink-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet strawberry jam. The flavor was sweet strawberry, cardboard, yeast and turned a bit dry at the end. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Blindfolded, I think raspberry would be the only fruit I could pick out in this but thatís okay; I like raspberries fine. This is sort of a deep orange color w/ maybe a hint of red to it w/ a big, fairly creamy head. The raspberry hits me up front but isnít over-the-top or anything, allowing for a good bit of cookie-like malt character to come out as well. This is full bodied and creamy w/o being sweet or heavy feeling. Combined w/ a touch of acidity from the fruity and it makes for a nice, refreshing experience. It is kind of annoying they say this is for "ladies" since I donít see why anyone canít enjoy a nice fruit beer but, say what you will, I think Shorts nailed exactly what they were going for on this one.

From beer club. Pours murky dull red with medium foamy white head. Aroma and taste of berries slight carbonation. Pretty much what I expected from the brewers description but it's just a little too fruity and sweet for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. From Mom. Pours a pinkish amber color with fast dissipating head. All kinds of berry aroma on the nose. Average carbonation. Medium sweetness. A nice blend of light fruit flavor with some malts. Not overly fruity. A slight warming alcohol too. Not too shabby.
