2.39/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.25

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy pinkish-purple color with a hint of an orange reddish color and a big billowy pink colored head. The fizzy head fades rather slowly over time as big carbonation bubbles pop within the head. Once the head fades away it leaves some rather nice foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big and sweet. Right upon opening the bottle you can smell it. Its biggest aroma is that of a raspberry and blackberry smell. Mixed with these smells are some other berry notes of strawberry and even a little bit of current. A grain and wheaty aroma as well as a bit of yeast are there as well, giving the beer an overall very berry and slightly grainy smell overall.

Taste – The taste is hugely sweet with tons of sugary raspberry and strawberry. The flavors are mixed with a blackberry like sweetness as well as a bit of lemon and honey. There are some lighter wheat and malt flavors that develop more toward the middle and a very light herbal flavor that develops at the end. These malt and herbal flavors are very light overall however, being overshadowed by the sweet fruit flavors. Overall the brew is very cloying and due to the lighter malt base, the beer has, and leaves, a very wine cooler like flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a higher carbonation level. The higher carbonation is nice for the very sweet and fruity flavors of the brew, although a bit of a thinner body may have been more fitting for the sweet wine cooler characteristics of the beer.

Overall – From what I have tasted this is pretty much a wine cooler. If you want something very sweet and lower in alcohol this may be it, but if looking for something that tastes anything like a beer then you may want to stay away.
