Pours an extremely cloudy, dark burnt yellow color (bordering on orange) with a tiny white head that disappears quickly.
The aroma alone was worth the purchase. Extremely strong, and smells delicious. Smells like sugary berries. Jelly. A little blueberry, banana, and who knows what else. I've only had a few boysenberries in my life - usually in pancakes or crepes - so I'm not completely sure if these hit that mark.
Flavor isn't bad. Not as much wheat as I would have expected. Obviously there is a lot of fruit flavor, but it's not quite as sweet as I would have expected from the aroma.
Mouthful is smooth and crisp. Slightly creamy, which adds to the enjoyment. Theonly downside is that it's a little sticky in the aftertaste.
Drinkability. Well, that depends on how much you like fruity beers. I don't like sweets that much. Hardly ever have desert. So fruity or over-sweet beers turn me off. Despite this, I actually enjoyed drinking this beer. I'd hate to make a night of it, though. One is enough.

hazy with a nice one inch head that faded to leave a ring around the putside of the glass.
Aroma was light, nothing really jumping out at you, but once it settled in was actually fairly decent. Lots of yeasty and grain like aroma, however there was a definate fruitiness to it. Something sweet lingering in the back that you just could not place., it was like a Hefe mixed with fruit, Actually very good. Nice grain flavors making up the bulk of it, however the berry was very evident, not somethign you had to go searching for. Left a nice finish as well. Very sweet finish.
