Was offered this by a buddy trying to clean out his fridge, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden with a pink hue light thin white head

Smell: Skittles

Taste: Light beer with skittles in it or as Homer Simpson calls it "Skittlebrau"

Mouthfeel: Bubbly and thin

Overall: Tastes more like a "Mikes" malt beverage than beer. MIght be ok on a hot summer day on the lawnmower. Otherwise pass this one up.

A: The beer is very hazy dark pinkish yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down a bit but left a a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: If I didn't first look at the color of this beer, I would have thought this smelled exactly like lemonade.
T: The taste has an equal mix of lemony and blackberry flavors.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's nothing overly special about this beer, except for the fact that it is very easy to drink. It kind of reminds me of a radler in Germany.

So, here's a fruit beer. There is only one place that makes the best fruit beers I've had, otherwise in a bottle, they tend to underwhelm.

S: Huge lemon smell, natural lemon with a bit of orange and blackberry with a faint plum as well.

A: No head, small lace but sticky.

M: Tiny bitter. Watery. Slight citrus remainder.

T: This was a surprise. It was nothing like a fruit beer, and in fact, nothing like a beer at all. It wasn't a fruit punch either because it was not as sweet. In fact, this was rather enjoyable and I could see having this on a warm summer evening at a bonfire. Of course, I'd use it as an alternative to the occasional wine cooler...

Nice orange impression while sipping. Lemon was not assertive but was clean and present. There was a sweet wash and slight wheat texture. The sweetness is a bit artificial, like Pez candy but it didn't detract. It's the "hairy buffalo" flavor without the alcohol. I hate to rank it low, but this is BA...

O: Again, not really a beer. For what it is, refreshing and light, when you're NOT in the mood for a beer.
