Simply put: Fruit Rye Ale. A bountiful blend of toasted rye flakes and two row malted barley make wort fermented with 200 pounds of pureed strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries resulting in a sweet fruity delicacy. Intoxicatingly refreshing and brewed special for those ladies who enjoy their wine.

Nice smooth taste with little to no after taste. Would make a good summer beer.

nice mix of fruit berries in this beer and you can somewhat taste the different ones (compared to most fruit beers I've had one usually takes over) but this one blends nice. nice red color, smells very good, if you like fruit beers should give this one a try. higher ABV is well hidden, wouldn't know it was 7.5%. blush wine drinkers this beer is dead on for same flavors in a beer.

Finally getting to try my first beer from these guys.

A: Amber in color with a definite reddish/purplish tinge to it. Almost like a mixed berry smoothie tinge. A thin white head caps the beer.

S: Like sniffing fermented mixed berry juice. Tons of green strawberry, plum, blueberry and grape juice. Has a kind of off putting fermented smell to it that makes it harder to get near the more this warms.

T: The base beer almost reminds me of a tripel. Sweet and malty with a bit of a clove taste to it. But draped over it, you get this heavy mixed berry note with a wet hay-like edge to it. Something in the background tastes like the smell of wet dog. Not really a fan of this one.
