I had to pick this up after seeing all the terrible ratings on it. And after, trying it, i like this beer, but i wouldnt seek it out to drink it again.
From the moment of popping off the cap it gives off a very pungent and sweet berry aroma. Not unpleasant but somewhat "artificial" with a very Joose-like malt liquor tainted smell in the background.
Pours a clear deep red with pink off-white head. Some lacing actually clings to the glass for throughout the session but most quickly recedes immidiately.
Taste is not bad, all berry sweetness, but no depth to balance it out. Bitter bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is very thin and overly carbonated.
Drinkability is pretty good, the body seems very light for the alc. content.
I honestly dont even know if this is really a "beer" or more of a flavored malt beverage as i feel there really isnt much of an emphasis on hops and malt interplay.
Serving type: bottle
