Sampled last night on 1/11/14 though I have had this one several times before. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a slight hazy reddish orange in color with a 1-finger white head that doesn't last a real long time. Spotty lacing was seen with each sip. A good amount of bubbles streaming up from the bottom and sides on the glass. The aroma is very pleasant of sweet raspberries & blackberries and lemonade with grains. The taste is right up front with a strong berry taste and then with a tart lemonade and ale finish. Great balance of the different flavors coming together. A great 'anytime' brew.

There is a time and a place for this beer. Warm weather, outdoor baseball game maybe. Inside, in December, on a Wednesday night, isn't helping it's cause any.

The strong artificial smell and taste of the lemons and berries remind me more of a wine cooler than a beer. The fake citrus nose and taste is the exact opposite of subtle.

The appearance actually peaked my interest, with it's cloudy rosy gold color and the carbonation is tiny, consistent and prevalent.

Overall, pick your spots to enjoy one of these beers. Like a picnic in the park, with your girlfriend, who uses a lot of hairspray. So if the wind should drop a hair in your beer, none the wiser.
