look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Not that I'm embarrassed but I'm just drinking this because it's leftover from a bbq. Fruity brew with essence of honey. A little bitterness at the end. No surprises- you know what you are getting. I'd rather have fruit all by itself. Keeping an open mind it is thirst quenching and very flavorful. My only take back is the twang of bitterness.

Just not a fan of these sugary tasting Berry beers. Tried it, as the wife loves them.

Way too sweet, like drinking fruit syrup. The aftertaste is okay, but it's like weiss beer with splenda packets added in.
