No enjoy by date on the label.
Poured slowly into a standard pint glass.
A: Poured with almost no head; but, the thin layer thatis there is an off-white with a pink hue. The brew is a medium copper color with a pink hue, and it is just a little cloudy.
S: The aroma is a sweet fruit punch of strawberries and raspberries, and there is a little malt sweetness there, too.
T: The taste is a pungent punch of fruit punch that is very sharp with some malt sweetness. There is also just a little bite from the alcohol that helps to keeps the flavors focused and sharp.
M: This beer is light bodied and smooth. It is very easy drinking for a 9% beer.
O This beer is outstanding for what it is. And, it is a novelty. In the world of fruit beers, this one really gets it right. There is not much hops flavor, and this really lets the fruit come through and do its thing. This is more like a barley wine with a fruit kick. It is definitely worth a try just to taste a well crafted fruit beer. It is fun to experience the braod range of fermented beverages that can be called beer.

Appearance: red, small head, and good lacing.
Smell: light fruityness and a nice malt.
Taste: slightly malty, cherry, orange, a faint hint of lemon, and a touch of honey.
Mouthfeel: medium-ight and smooth.
This is a decent fruit beer. Light enough for many to enjoy, but full flavored enough to satisfy my tastes.
Serving type: on-tap

This pours a lovely pink color with a decent foam topping. It has a light fruity aroma. Michigan berries! I pick up strawberries, raspberries, and a feeling of springtime.
Tastes of light, fruity, and above all fresh berries. There’s a rounded fruit sweetness and a spicy rye zest on the finish. Slightly sour/tart with a light effervescence to keep it easy-going.
The last time I ordered this my friends teased me for drinking a beer that looked like Cherry 7-Up. Who’s laughing now? Ahem… now that I’ve brought some bottles to share with a group of friends who loved it. This is a real crowd pleaser that I’m happy to say I enjoy as well.
