Poured from the bottle, this beer has an orange/tan color and a berry- like aroma that has notes of wheat and grains. The white foam is average and it does stick around long enough to give the beer an attractive cover.
The taste of this beer is fruity and wheat- like, and it reminds me of a bowl of cereal with pieces of fresh berries. The taste is like a cross between blueberries and blackberries with a good wheat backbone and creamy texture. The hop presence is only slight, but about what one would expect for thsi style.
Fruit beers are not usually my style, but I do like them when they have real beer character and this fruit beer certainly passes on these and other counts. The fruit character is undeniable, but so is the wheat and bread character in the background, making the beer seem like a fruity dessert or piece of fruit pie. I like it better than many other fruity brews and I find it has enough good qualities to earn a recommendation.
