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.

tried this on tap last week, ended up getting a sixer today. The beer straw in appearance. Similar to a low end such as busch but with a brighter glow. No head when I poured her in my glass. Looks a lot like a cider. Smells mildly sweet. I hate flavored beers but this one is tolerable. I can't believe this flavor was achieved in a beer. The acai taste is spot on and I really like wheaty brews. Mouthfeel is fine. The only thing is that I wish It had more than 4 percent alc by volume. Oh well

Fresh 12 oz bottle with an updated label.

Amber; weak head despite fairly high visible carbonation.

Feel: medium-light body; medium-high carbonation. Dry finish.

Flavor: good, nearly neutral sweet/bitter balance. Very fruity, with the acai berries nearly masking the malts. Lingering fruity flavor.

Aroma: very fruity; natural fruit; subtle bready malt base.

O: worth tryig for acai flavor.
