I'm not sure why this beer is so poorly reviewed. I quite enjoyed it. It is very fruity and wheaty tasting. Very stong berry sent as soon as I poured it. Pretty sweet, but it was crisp and refreshing.

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.
