look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a Mickey's pint glass.
A: Poured a deep tinted purple/reddish amber color with a chilled haze and a frothy head of whitish foam.
S: A full bouquet of berries rises without even having to put your nose to it. A potent mixture of fresh berries which is quite pleasing.
T: Holy white zinfandel, Batman! It's got that distinct, vinous alcohol flavor mixed with a mouthfull of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. There's no hop taste that I can find, and the sweetness of the berries negates any real malted beer taste to it.
M: Mouthfeel is fizzy, because despite being sticky sweet at times, this brew is well carbonated.
D: As drinkable as say, Harpoon Raspberry UFO, except the lack of hops or other malt flavors impedes the drinkability a tad. It's a whole lot of fruit flavoring, and is tailor-made for summer.
For what it is, it's a very fruity beer with natural flavoring, as opposed to a Miller Chill or Bud Lime. It's better than some other fruit beers, but it's no lambic. If you love berries, be my guest. I'll pass from now on.
