Pours an odd Kool-Aid/fruit punch red with little pink champagne-style bubbles and pretty well no lace. But appearances aren't everything.

Nose is tart berries -- very appealing, actually.

Taste is pleasantly tart, but not sweet. The hibiscus adds a floral tinge, and the coriander imparts a lightly spicy hint towards the finish, but overall the flavor is marionberry. It's a little sour, and a nicely light session beer that breaks the mold a bit.

Sick beer. Unfiltered wheat beer so it has this deep beautiful red color. It comes off sour at first and hits you with a huge fruit note. Virtually no hops flavor so it actually disguises itself as a beer pretty well. Therefore, not for picky hop heads or those not into sours or fruit beers. On the other hand, perfect for people into fruitier things. So drinkable and tasty.

Pours a hazy deep pink to reddish color with a small off white head. In the aroma, coriander, and a fruity to tart berries. In the taste, starts dry to a cranberry juice cocktail flavor to dry end. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry fruitiness to clean aftertaste. Note really sure what marionberry should taste like, but quite cranberry like.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter

I'll be honest. When I poured this into my glass, and it began glowing angry pink at me, I uttered, "Yikes." This does not look very appealing. I don't find pink beer attractive. Aside from that, it pours with a large, coarse head that fades fast. Fairly translucent, only a little active carbonation. Smell is berries and yeast.

Taste is like unsweetened soda. This doesn't even taste like beer. This just tastes bad.

Mouthfeel is flat and smooth. Overall, I'm not a fan at all, and I think I'm going to dump this out.
