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.
