On tap at the brewery's tasting room. It is a grapefruit pink colour and lacey. It smelled berry, and some citrus as well in the nose. The taste was a nice berry tartness, with coconut in the secondary. Good drinkability, I call it a beer sangria. Average mouthfeel.

A: copper color. Cloudy. Head is a little thin for being a nitro.

S: heavy notes of bourbon upfront with vanilla and caramel supported by fresh strawberries and raspberries. The vibrant aroma greatly impresses.

T: sweet vanilla and creme dominate the front of the palate followed by the tartness of the berries which gives an overall comparison to berry gelato.

M: Creamy and chewy. The texture compliments the flavor beautifully.

O: pleasantly surprised by this diamond in the rough of the fruit beer breed.

I had this on-tap at the brewpub. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a fluffy white head and great retention.

Smell: Bourbon hits the nose pretty hard up front. There is also some sweet malt and fruit. The finish is tart and a bit sweet.

Taste: This one is kind of weirding me out. Bourbon and fruit, kind of reminds me of a jello shot. Taste is also a bit creamy.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth carbonation with a dry finish.

Overall: I'm really glad I got to try this, but it wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't think everything went together very well. I'm giving them points for the great appearance and mouthfeel as well as the interesting idea.

Big mess of a fruity beer with a foamy head that lingers like a bad houseguest. It'll be here for months, staining my glass.

Passionfruit dominates the nose, with boozy whiskey oak chiming in as it warms. Coconut comes late to the crazy flavor party. A little sweet: ends messy but long with a sweet hard candy tang. I expect to look in the mirror and see my tongue has gone grape ape purple or cherry red, but with real fruit flavors. Full bodied, substantial. Mystery fruit indeed. The mystery might be chermoya or paw-paw.

Very enjoyable fruit beer -- the real standout in a rather ho-hum trip to the brewery. Labor day crowds seem to have stripped the pub of all its wares.

On nitro-tap at Founders last weekend. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a reddish-copper color and is slightly hazed. Frothy off-white head sits around for a bit and leaves some good lacing. The nose starts out with quite a bit of bourbon. Beneath that is cherry, raspberry, and miscellaneous fruit. Taste is more dominated by the bourbon, but also has a light sweetness and tartness from the fruit. Chewy body with bourbon throughout. Really nice and interesting. Not as good as the NG R&D Kriek, but a good concept that I'd like to see more of.

A: cloudy light brown. Served with half inch of creamy light tab head. Sheets and sheets of lacing.

S: loads of berries, though nothing stands out on it's own. Fruit, slight sourness, maybe a light vinegar quality.

T: starts with syrupy sweetness. Lots of fruit and berries. Slightly funky. Oak and vanilla. A little sour, but the sourness is tamed by the sweetness. Sugary on the finish.

M: medium bodied. Slightly syrupy. Low carbonation.

O: hell of a fruit beer. Lots of fruit. Almost lambic like.
