For a fruit flavored beer this was very good. Nice color for what it is, carbonation average, not much of an aroma but a very very smooth and relatively soft beer as well as sweet beer. Warm weather beer....

MAR 27 17 printed on the bottle.
12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler pint glass.

Poured like a soft drink. Cloudy, pinkish orange and bubbly with finger of fizzy disappearing head. Smells like sweet berry wine. Tastes like sweet raspberry wine, a little malty then finishes clean and bittersweet. Refreshing, light and fizzy with high carbonation.

This is just like a wine cooler to me. Not bad but definitely not in my wheelhouse. I let my sweet tooth get the better of me on this purchase. I should have known better, at least it was only a single.

This is not THAT bad...as being rated poor, but it is a sweet yet no too sweet tasting beer. My wife has me get this for her. I like the other selections from Leinenkugal's better. Since it is my wife's favorite selection....probably indicates it's a chick beer....just sayin'.

Picked up Berry Weiss at the local grocery store. Put bottles in fridge to get cold before drinking. Opening the beer, the smell is definitely a berry type of scent and not much else. Taste is a wheat beer taste that seems to be infused with berries-- it seems to be tart cranberry tasting juice to me-- and it mixes in right where the clean taste common with wheat beers is found, right in the middle of the drink lasting to the end. Also very carbonated and a little bitter in the end.

The beer is not bad, but is not great either-- people that enjoy most fruit-fused beers will enjoy this. I will say, the juice in the beer seemed to blend with the beer better the longer it sat in my fridge, so if you get this one and do not like the taste initially, just keep it in the fridge for a couple of weeks and revisit it.

Pours from a 12 oz. bottle a crazy light cranberry color with a pink tinged rocky head of foam that is dropping quickly.
The smell is an explosion of sweet berry bombing my nose. Smells so sweet and delicious.
The taste is slightly grainy with a lot of sweet berries. Kind of tastes like a liquefied Captain Crunch cereal.
Mouth feel is foamy and carbonated as heck. It feels like the carbonation makes this into a foamy ball of berry goodness that crashes over the tongue to a wet finish on the backside.
Overall I am having a hard time finding the beer in this one. I do find a fun berry flavored malt beverage but beer? I am very happy with this purchase as this is a tasty beverage yet difficult to identify it as a beer.

It pours a weird cooper hue with a overload of berry to the smell. Taste is same as smell, just a fruity taste ( not even sure if beer was in it.) This is one where it starts out nice but then ends up not worth it. I like a little sweetness but this just becomes overpowering about half way through.
