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.

Delicious flavor. No lacing, but that is okay, I loved it. Looked good, smelled good, tasted fantastic for a chick.

I drank one and loved it. I had another and liked it. Had a third and decided I'd rather have a beer.

Nice smooth taste with little to no after taste. Would make a good summer beer.

nice mix of fruit berries in this beer and you can somewhat taste the different ones (compared to most fruit beers I've had one usually takes over) but this one blends nice. nice red color, smells very good, if you like fruit beers should give this one a try. higher ABV is well hidden, wouldn't know it was 7.5%. blush wine drinkers this beer is dead on for same flavors in a beer.
