Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half white head. Thick, but low retention. Light coppery color with very little clarity. Interesting looking beer.

S- Blackberries, raspberries, lemons. Smells like a pastry. Very sweet and fruity. No notes of hops or malts that I can detect though, which is unfortunate.

T- Berry flavors, lemon pledge and some caramel hops. Very fruity, no beer backbone to give it any umph. The syrupy flavors aren't helping.

M- Smooth, light and creamy. Not bad, but could be less syrupy.

O- Way too sweet for easy drinking.

Pours clouded pink grapefruit-ish hued with a thin head that lasts. Some web-like lacing sticks.

The smell is of blackberry juice. Slightly tart.

The taste is of a blend of fruit juices, mostly notably, blackberry, raspberry and lemon. However, not the same way the real juices are - there is a plastic-like taste to it. A hint of tart keeps it from being as sweet as the fruit malt drinks, raising the score a tad for me. Still it is sweet.

The carbonation stays just under the "too fizzy" category. It is smooth - more from being watery than otherwise, though there is a malty touch to it.

Not a true shandy in my eyes, as there is a lack of "beer" qualities. Though, as stated above not sickly sweet as the fruit malt beverages. If you want a fruit juice brew, it's tolerable, I suppose. I raised the overall just a hair because it is what it is...(better than the berry weiss from what I remember).
