12 ounce bottle into a pint glass
A - After being poured steadily into the pint glass, a respectable half finger head rises above a slightly hazy, reddish orange body. The head fades to a lace with a thicker ring around the glass after a couple minutes.
S - Lots of berries as expected but there isn't the authentic smell. Rather the berry smell seems somewhat artificial. Not a whole lot else coming to me when smelling this beer but the berry smell does get some praise even though I suspect it's at least partially artificial.
T - Much like the smell, as the taste is dominated by the berry flavor. Wheat is present as well but much more faint than the berry aspect of this beer. The bottle claims there is honey in this beer but I am not getting any. Overall, this tastes like a wine cooler that has gotten kicked up a notch or two.
M - Light bodied beer with a good amount of carbonation. Lots of berries as the beer enters the mouth. Carbonation arrives and gives you a hint of wheat present in this beer. Finish is somewhat smooth and clean, but this beer resembles too much of a wine cooler to give it a higher score.
D - I could see myself having one of these at most during a hot day. Quite frankly, this beer probably won't appeal to most people on this site because it's so dumbed down and basic. While I know this isn't one of Leinie's best sellers I have no doubt they do quite well with the casual beer drinkers in the summer time. I would probably go for just about any other Leinie's offering before I would grab this one.
