This was a favorite beer of both me and my wife during a recent Michigan trip.
A- The body of the beer is a ruby pink coloration. The head was white with a hint of raspberry. No lacing and the head quickly resolves.
S- I really am digging the berry overload kicking up from this bottle. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blue berries all in ripe bloom. Sweet and tart berry aromas swim up from my glass.
T- The flavor is a mélange of berries. Some swallows are sweeter while some are a bit tart. No off flavors no a hint of alcohol.
M- The body is a bit thinner than I would like it but its still very nice. No hint of 9%abv. The sweetness of the fruit has a dry finish.
O- This beer had me at the aroma. I love the mix of berries in the aroma. The flavor could be amped up a bit, but would it be the soft parade anymore? This is a beer I wish was distributed to Cincinnati.

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.
