A: Pours out to a flat and lowly carbonated presentation. Medium yellow color with a short lived foam head, and a total lack of lacing.

S: Strong indications of berries and mild malts. Slightly sweet, and mildly artificial. Still, it's got my interest.

T: Suprisingly well balanced for a light lager which dresses as a fruit beer; mild malt, traces of dry hops, a strong yet not cloying flavor of berries with a natural and mild sweetness. Quite nice.

M: Bubbly. Zesty. Sharp. Very crisp. Light bodied and goes down easy.

D: Average, but considering it came from AB, it's a step in the right direction. They're exploring new territory, which I commend, but why do this beer in a "light" format? Go full flavor and you'll have peoples attention. Worth trying. I could take it or leave it.

Appearance- It is a straw gold almost brass color with a weak white head and lace.

Smell- It has sort of a kool-aid like smell to it. The aroma is very sweet.

Taste- It has an overly fruity infused with a cheap pils taste.

Mouthfeel- Thin and watery.

Drinkability- It is a great beer for people who want to say they drink beer but don't or a training wheel beer.

A- Light pale yellow with small white head that disappears into the overwhelming effervescent bubbles.

S- Faint hint of artificial raspberry. Fruity.

T- Fizzy tonic water with a hint of artificial raspberry and pomegranate.

M- Fizzy. Overly fizzy.

D- Like a soda but less sweet. Tonic water with artificial flavoring and waaaay too much carbonation. Not offensive, but almost.

Reviewed 3/5/2009 (bottle):

Pours a huge foamy white head, quickly diminishing, with a very clear pale yellow colored body. Very strong raspberry and cherry (pomegranate?) aromas, very enticing. Some malts too, but very sweet smelling. Mmmm, cherries. Very cherry taste, some bitter raspberry, and dryness on the end. Somewhat cloying sweetness. Very fruity tasting, but simple, very cherry, and some raspberry. Refreshing, but very sweet.

What the what?!?! Who thought this up?!?!?! Disgusting! I am not against fruit flavors in my beer, but this does not work on any level. The flavors clash like a train derailing on my taste buds.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

A - White head that lasts about 15 seconds. The body is almost a fluorescent yellow.

S - The scent of raspberries and malt. It actually smells rather inviting.

T - Very little flavor here other than a slight berry taste and a hint of malt.

M - Very cold and slightly coarse.

~ This was left at my place after a cookout a few weeks back. I'm glad to have had the chance to try it but I won't be sampling this brew again anytime soon.
