Picked up a 4 pack to try. Summer isn't technically over and it's been in the 80's this week so was thinking would work well with the warmer weather. (Why they are releasing this beer this later in the year is beyond me but anyway....)

Heavy pour into a SA perfect pint glass left a 2 in head that dissipated quickly. What was left as color goes was as as close to what resembles a watered down pink lemonade as it could get and exactly what to be expected.

First sip impressions immediately made me imagine what carbonated watery cool-aid would taste like. Slight lemon with a mix of artificial "berry" flavor. Taste left the mouth quickly and mouthfeel was light, almost dry with a slight bitter aftertaste.

Overall, I am a lenie's fan, like a fruit beer once in a while and like most of what they have been releasing which includes the Big Eddy series. This beer however falls off the grid and can't imagine how this made it past the test batch phase.

Serving type: can

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Appearance - Grapefruit juice color. Is that salmon? Cloudy. Tall soapy white head - just a touch of pink. Quickly dissipates.

Smell - Sweet lemon with a hint of berry.

Taste - Quite sweet. More berry in the start transitions to more lemon in the finish. Not clear to me what is the "berry" of the namesake. (Label claims blackberry.) Sweet but unobtrusive to the point of blandness.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Highly carbonated.

Overall - I'm not surprised that there's a market for this. It's refreshing and inoffensive, but the pretension to beer seems unnecessary.

Serving type: bottle
