Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss brewed by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.70% This brew pours out a nice pink color with a nice white head. Berry Weiss has a color all on it's own . The smell is sweet, with berry. You pick up on a hit of grains, malts, and hops. The taste is bitter, sweet. You pick up on the berries in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. The berry taste is smooth and refreshing. Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss has a nice balance to it there is nothing overpower in it. Overall I'm giving Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss a solid 4 out 5 . I like how this brew is different from most brews on the market. I would buy this brew again.

Too sweet for me!.
It's better on tap though. Bottled or as good.

Precious and I used to watch the show "Storage Wars". It's a reality show not worth talking about except one of the stars [sic] was a guy named Barry Weiss. He's a bit of a character, and Precious loves him. So Precious went to visit her mom, and after I dropped her off at the airport I made a beeline for the beer store. I saw this on the shelf. I told Precious about it, and she told me that I had to go back and get some.

I don't know if this can really be called "beer" because it's so different. The color is a kind of purple/violet type color, and it smells like a fruity, sweet wine almost like a moscato. But the taste just isn't there. Like the title suggests, it has a hint of a berry flavor, but it's a little syrupy and heavy. If you like that, then this might be worth trying.

I love Leinenkugel's for their ingenuity and originality. I encourage experimentation. I'm the first one in the pool. But this just doesn't do it.

I think all of Leinenkugels' fruit beers are the same: fruity and delicious, but leave you wishing they had something more distinguishing than which fruit is in this particular beer you're drinking at that moment.
