Thanks to bgramer for my first Short's beer. Cheers dude!
Pours a vibrant ruby red with a little white head that lasts for a few minutes and doesn't leave much lacing.
Smells absolutely amazing for a fruit beer. Tons of fresh amazing fruit smells, dominated by strawberries for me. There is a slight bit of spiciness from the rye but the smell is definitely fruit dominated.
The taste is a 100% reversal. It tastes like a hearty rye bread with some slight fruit sweetness and a relatively dry and bitter finish. Really interesting to have such a 180 flavor turn like that.
Extremely dry finish with a medium body feel.
Wow, no one could convince me that this was 9% ABV this is just hidden so well and its one of the best fruit beers I have ever had not to mention being extremely interesting. Thanks again Brendan!

I love the ignorant beer drinkers saying this isn't a beer. It's essentially a lower end sour there is nothing wrong with this beer if you enjoy sours. deep fruit tones with that sour finish. not my favorite but not nearly as bad as some of the reviews suggest.

In no way you could call this beer, the closet thing to that is a product that was put out by Oliver wine in Indiana. That product was never labeled a beer, but a wine. If you are a fan of a very dry wine you might like this, but I did not. I thought it might at least a little sweet, nope.
