realized I've never rated this one before.
on sale at Meijers for 8.99$
A&S: the smell is dominated by fruitiness (mostly raspberries, some blueberries) after that there is this very sweet almost artificial sweet maltyness. The color is a ruby red with is mostly transparent. head is off-white with tints of red, pours about a quarter of a finger of fizzyness and fades quickly
T&M: I feel the taste is dominated by blueberries with hints of strawberries but not overpowering. The aftertaste taste remarkable similar to alot of bad light lagers. The abv is extremely well hidden almost to the point where im having a hard time believing it. Mouthfeel is not so great, pretty darn watery and highly carbonated.
O: Really not all that bad, not my first choice, for sure not my last. A good summer relaxation beer, that is a crowd pleaser and high abv.

Pint from draft. Pours a solid semi opaque reddish/pink brew with an average head.
Smells of a fresh fruit dish.
Taste is a nice blend of high fruit, tapering with a hefty taste of malt and barley soon too follow. Not too sugary which is great though the aftertaste of bitterness soon follows.
Mouth feel is that of drinking a berry smoothie with a rhubarb pie. Leaves mouth a tad dry.
Pleasant overall. A good night cap.

Strong fruit smell but amazing almost clear red color. Tastes more like a summer beer. Be careful it tastes very light but hast more than 8% ABV. Very easy to drink but it goes into the direction of lemonade more than beer. Includes blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.
