Pours a purplish red, creamy head with good retention. Aroma is definitely berry-forward but not over-the-top, a tad sweet, like jam or compote. Aroma taste to me is mostly raspberry & grape, maybe a little blackberry, the malt base is a little dry / stale tasting but that is the only real miss. If you like fruit beers this is a pretty good one

I had a good feeling for this beer. Has a lot of flavor love the berry combination with the raspberries and cherries. Smooth malty body with consistent levels of both sweet and tart.

Would totally get this again and drink a six pack of it. Local place has it in stock. Give it a try!

Nice summer time brew. Full of berriliciousness and brilliant tart tones. Nice half inch head and lacy staying power. Layers of berries and maltiness. Not a drink for everyday, but the occasional glass is wonderful.

Fruity and tasty just as expected. Clever name for this beer. Drink this with your favorite tie dye t shirt on with some Grateful Dead playing in the background. This is not something that I would want to drink often, but once in a while it sure does hit the spot. Cheers! B

The slightly hazed deep ruby reddish-pink colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 3/4” pink head that recedes slowly, leaving lots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Sipping creates arches and lots of small patches and legs of lacing. By mid-way through the beer there’s still lots of lacing on the sides of the glass and a thin, irregular island of foam on the surface of the liquid.

The aromas definitely are filled with multiple berries. There’s also a bit of bready malt along with a light touch of citric hops.

The flavors are pretty much as expected from the nose with lots of berries in the mix. The berries here include raspberries, cherries and blueberries. The berries are backed up by some bready sweetness from the malt. There’s also a bit of cherry tartness along with a light touch of citric, earthy bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly crisp and creamy from the finely bubbled and moderate carbonation. The finish begins as the sweetness begins to fade a bit to be followed by the berries. As the berry sweetness recedes the cherry tartness moves forward a bit and migrates towards the back of the palate where it pairs with the citric hops to finish up the long semi-dry ending.

Overall an enjoyable fruit beer that for me would work best in the summer. It’s refreshing and has lots of berry flavors. In some ways this beer reminds me a lot of one of my summer berry breakfasts which include a mix of raspberries, blueberries, and sometimes a few tart cherries. I’ll probably be having more of each this summer and think the beer would be a nice one to have on offer for after dinner during a summer party that includes folks who don’t think they like beer. That all said, it’s not a beer I’d drink more than one of at a time just as I’m not going to have two bowls of berries for breakfast.

Pours a cloudy maize color. 1/2 inch head of an off-pink color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of raspberry, cherry, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight dough, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of a Fruit/Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of raspberry, cherry, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight dough, hint of alcohol, and a hint of citrus hops. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

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.

L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had a dark red color and a very thick and cloudy consistency. There was a two inch, off white, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A fair aroma of citrus, different types of berries, and wheat as well.

T: Tasted of a small amount of wheat (mostly in the finish), some light citrus notes (lemon, in particular), some berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries), and a slight earthiness. Not necessarily a bad flavor, but not quite as forceful as it should be. It's kind of a mushy mess, but it has its charms.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Definitely an uneven beer, but like all Boulevard products, it has some good qualities. Worth a look.
