3.68/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 12oz bottle into my New Glarus pint glass
A- Pours a purple-red with almost no head and minimal lacing. Not like any beer I've ever seen
S- Niiice! Lots of berries in the nose, raspberries and strawberries taking the lead. Tiny hop background
T- Little bit muddled with all the berries but still rather tasty. Instead of hops in the taste I get small amounts of malts in the mouth
M-Pretty smooth on the frontend but awkward bubbles on the backend
O- Very unique and enjoyable. Thanks Shorts!

3.79/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Pours a pink hazy color. Head was 1/5 of and inch, white with a pink tint. Head retention and lacing were mediocre at best but the beer was such a pretty color, I decided to boost up the rating a small amount.
Smell is of strawberries and raspberries, similar to a jar of jam. Pale straw malts are also detected, apparently this beer is made with rye but i don't get any on the nose.Getting some smells of belgian yeast similar to what you'd find in a tripel. Aroma of alcohol is light in the end.
Taste is full on fruit; lots of raspberries and strawberries with some blackberries in background. Very light malts are also in the mix, again, I don't get any rye. No hops are detected either, some medicinal alcohol is tasted in the finish.
Mouthfeel is very light and effervescent, similar to a champagne or rose. No head is present which is a shame, could have used some to cut astringent aftertaste.
Overall, this was a tasty fruit ale but it was pretty one note. Could have benefited from more body but it is a good alternative to sparkling wine or hard ciders. Good beer but not available in my area, wouldn't try too hard to trade for it
