Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A - Light red, with a slight purple cast. Very light head, a pinkish cast to the white base. Fades quickly, and only minor lacing.

S - Mostly acidic berry notes and mild funk, slight hint of lactic acid.

T - Following the nose, with berry flavors mingling with a light acidic push.

M - Very brisk carbonation. Spikey acidity. No sign of the major ABV on this fruit beer.

O - A berry beer, very subtle, but with a hidden ABV punch. Not a particularly complex brew, but quite drinkable. Enjoyable.
