I had this a couple years ago and at first thought it was a nice change from bitter beer. As I start another six pack (appreciation payment from a theatre director for photography well done), I am reminded at how interesting this stuff is. Kinda fruity, like a cheer beer for the urban elite. It's drinkable. I down one in two pizza slices. But it's not a regular beer for me. ca. 2010

This is a great summer beer for me. It smells just like the cereal Fruity Pebbles to me; and it tastes very similar. The fruity aroma carries through to the taste and is a very easy beer to drink.
