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.

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...

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.

Canned 3/8/18; drank 5/10/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque purple appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge pink/white head; thick, frothy tree-rung lace.

Blueberry, wheat & raspberry notes in the nose.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Blueberry & raspberry flavors up front; mild wheat notes on the finish.

This is a straight up fruit beer, showcasing the berries; I like this style & think it's represented well hear. I'd have another...

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/8/2018. Pours fairly hazy ruby red/orange/pink/purple color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky light pink head with great 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 juicy/lightly tart/tangy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, citrus peel bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy raspberry, blueberry, cherry, fruit skin, melon, citrus zest, red grape/wine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly acidic/tangy/tannic, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.9%. Overall this is an excellent fruit beer! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of berries, bready malts, and light fruity yeast/citrus hop flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink, with the mellowly tart/bitter/drying finish. Awesome jammy berry flavors with balanced bready malts. Not overly sweet. A very enjoyable offering and spot on style example. Exceptional levels of fruit presence.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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

12 oz. can

Pours opaque dark rose red with a dense creamy off-white light pinkish foam head. Smells like mixed berry fruit juice, berries, cherries, mild grainy malt, sweet spice, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like fruity juicy raspberry, blueberry, tart cherries, sweet cinnamon-esque cobbler spice, grainy malt, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with smooth moderate low carbonation. Overall a really nice blueberry raspberry cherry fruit ale.
