12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy pale golden/straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart/tangy blackberry, raspberry, fruit skin/seed, peach, pear, red apple, melon, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of vanilla, cocoa, herbal floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of acai berries, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart/tangy blackberry, raspberry, fruit skin/seed, peach, pear, red apple, melon, wheat, cracker, and white bread; with light notes of vanilla, cocoa, herbal floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy blackberry, raspberry, fruit skin/seed, peach, pear, red apple, melon, wheat, cracker, white bread, light cocoa/vanilla, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice balance and robustness of acai berries, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness, tart/tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a delicious fruited American pale wheat ale. All around nice balance and robustness of acai berries, pale/wheat malts, and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very well balanced between authentic berries, and pale/wheat malts; with restrained fruity yeast and balancing earthy hops. No residual sweetness from crisp dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, citrus, hint of hop, and some sort of berries. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight dryness. Tastes of pale malt, hint of hop, berries, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of wheat. Overall, weak appearance, mostly berry aroma, unusually dry feel, weak body, and berry dominated blend.

If you're going to a wheat drink beer that tastes like fruit punch, may as well go with the best tasting fruit punch.
