Pours ruby red. Nice lacing. Smells pleasant. Tastes quite sweet. Bit surprising given that berries usually are tart. Tastes like fruit juice. Don't taste alcohol. Okay for a hot day.

Cloudy purple colored beer with a tall purple pink colored head. I must emphasis this is purple.

Smells of berry and wheat crackers. Slight sour scent and lesser scent of medicine.

Starts out mildly sour and tasting of sour blackberry. Taste of mineral water and seltzer. Mostly this is a mild fruit beer.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall this is just a mild easy drinking beer. Don't buy expecting a gourmet experience. Just easy drinking fruit beer, really suited to a hot day.

Pours an effervescent purple with a pinky of pinkish head. Decent head retention & lacing

S: A little cherry, not much else

T: Tart raspberry, dryness, a little blueberry up front. More of the same as this warms, sweetness picks up a bit. Finishes with a little berry sweetess & dryness

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation

Drinks alright, but just not one I would buy again

From a can at the 2018 Decatur Beer Fest.
Pours with a clear reddish-brown body topped with very good white head. Excellent clarity.
Mild, lightly tart aroma.
The flavor is mildly bitter and fruity with just a hint of biscuits.
Medium body with medium carbonation.

12oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark ruby red body, two finger light pink head, lots of lacing. fair retention. Smell is sweet maraschino cherry, a bit of lactose, touch of wheat and lemon. A bit of raspberry. Flavour is a bit of lactic acid, lemon, fair bit of berry sweetness and fruit, touch of lemon, wheat, cherry skin. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, a bit of berry sweetness on the backend. Straight forward fruit beer, not too much sweetness or acidity, balanced.

a lightly purple summery easy drinker, but not at all one of their best beers. for me, the berry complexion is sweet and sort of thin at the same time, more of a generic berry flavored popsicle or gum or something than any real mixed fruits. it would be almost impossible to say blackberry here or boysenberry over there, its not like that, but its hard to argue that it doesnt taste pretty good, sort of nonspecific as it is. the base beer is super light, light in flavor and body, which makes this really easy drinking when its ice cold, and lets the berries do the majority of the flavoring even though they arent super intense or anything. carbonation is high which is also nice and adds to the summery vibe. if i had to pick i would say blueberry is the most forward of the fruits, but its tough to say. a little thin in feel when it warms up, and not really all that beery as they go, but something fun for the warm weather and surprisingly not too sweet to drink several of them. i prefer their kolsch in this context though by a long shot...

Front overly tart, fades into a grainy finish. Looks unique, while the taste seems to mellow the more you drink.

Taste rating in words: It's wearing a coat when a jacket would do.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy, purple color with a thin, white head that doesn't leave lacing. Nose of raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry. Taste is raspberry, blueberry, and cherry with a clean citrus finish. Medium carbonation and medium-light body.
It's alcohol infused juice. It's watered down but super drinkable and allows the berries to really shine. The raspberry is the dominant berry but the blueberry, blackberry, and sweet cherry do come through. Definitely not a winter beer but a good spring or summer beer.
