3.3/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The pours a murky copper color with a fluffy off white head. The smell is mostly berries with some wheat and a little bit of tang. It tastes slightly tangy with berry flavor that's kind of medicine like, wheat bread in the aftertaste. The beer is really light with loads of soft carbonation. Wouldn't really want to drink this again.

3.66/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Lawson's tulip.

a: Clear dark gold with a half finger thick head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.'

s: Mild fruit cup.

t: Mild berry flavor over a light cracker malt base.

m: Light to medium, good body.

o: A refreshing summer brew with just enough subtle dark berry flavor while still letting you know it's beer.
