look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle into a regular glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy pink color. The head is a finger high, and light pink in shade. It has a rough texture and poor retention. However, there is a bit of lacing left on the glass. (3.25)

Smell: Berries, berries, and more berries. Mostly blackberry and raspberry, with only faint hints of the base wheat beer coming through. I can't give it a great score due to its simplicity - but honestly, it smells decent. It doesn't really seem artificial or chemical, either. (3)

Taste: Flavor-wise, it's about 90% fruity drink, 10% beer. I do taste hints of honey, wheat, and faint butter on the back end, but this is practically blackberry juice. While it's WAY too sweet, it doesn't particularly strike me as being chemical. Still, it's very simplistic and not at all likely to appeal to hardcore craft drinkers. (2.5)

Mouthfeel: Very sweet. The finish needs to be cleaned up by a magnitude of sixty, actually. Carbonation is strong enough to will it down slightly more easily, but it becomes tiring after a while. (2.5)

Overall: Not great in the least, but given I had that horrifying Honey Abomination Cask from Shock Top earlier, this looks downright miraculous in comparison. Still, it tastes like a glorified wine cooler. Won't be buying this again, that's for sure. (2.5)

2.64/5: If Arbor Mist brewed a beer...
