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.

From notes taken 05/04/16:

Dull, semi-clear honey amber with various strong pink tones in any light. Large, foamy, uniform, well-retaining head, very light pink, like grapefruit yogurt. Sweet and tart berries to the nose and little else besides. Makes me crave blackberry or raspberry pie, but I’d settle for raspberry. Much the same to the palate save that berries are less distinct, as well as partly subdued by grain bill. Finish is sweet at first, then almost rubbery, then surprisingly clean and crisp. Medium-bodied, medium level of sloshy tingles and fine suds.
