Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A - Reddish fruity color, when held up to the light you notice some pink hues in this beer. Nice foamy white head decent lacing good looking beer.

S - Smells fruity just expected more fruit notes it was kind of bland on the nose.

T - Sour for a fruit beer, but also not fruity enough. To be honest, I enjoy this even though it doesn't really fit a style. Hides the alcohol well. Detectable bitterness with no hop aroma or flavor.

M - Good carbonation and medium body.

O - Overall I would say this is a average beer I expected more out of this beer but it was still worth trying. It did hide the alcohol well so you have to pace yourself on this one.
