Wanted to like this, but couldn't. Pours clear golden with a quick-faded white ring. Aroma is way overdone berry additive. Does not smell natural. Flavor is similar if slightly better with a little bit of malt. Watery but palatable.

Can from Bert's
Slightly hazy deep yellow color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Berry and spicy cereal grains on the nose. Sweet berry dominates the flavor with a bit of bready spicy maltiness to almost balance it. Feels more like a wine cooler than a beer, but cleanly fermented and tasty.

wheat, yeast, sweet blackberry and raspberry on the nose. taste is the similar, slightly tart blackberry note. its very easy drinking and refreshing, definitely straddling the line between beer and seltzer. best when served frigid cold and enjoyed outside on a hot day. very glad to see this beer again!

Have not had in a long while, but enjoyed this fruit beer for its nice easy fruit flavor that was a break from the usual raspberry flavors

Light, almost seltzer water taste, in a good way. Refreshing on a summer day. Not sweet, with a blackberry aftertaste. Not a potent beer bye any means but tasty, light and refreshing.

It has it time and place, a very nice beer for the true dog days of summer, fruit feels and taste very light and natural, not sick sugary goop
