Aroma: To paraphrase Little Richard, "tutti fruity, rudy!" Fruiteriffic monster whiffs. Strawberries and more.
1st Taste: Muted taste versus the upfront aroma. The fruit taste is present, but far from overwhelming. There's also a touch of tartness.
Overall: Interesting blend of flavors done well. Not sure I've found a ton of fruit beers that I'm a huge fan of....but would likely rate this higher on a summer day. Argued with Big Scot that this reminded me of Magic Hat's Wacko. He said this was better. The bottle label called this a "high gravity", not sure about that reference.
Poured clear with a big, white, frothy foam. Retention was okay as the big bubbled foam eventually became a thin layer on the beer. Lacing was at a minimum.
Aroma is sweet and full of a ton of berries: strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry. Just a bunch of berry goodness.
Taste is similar to the nose. There is a lot of sweetness surrounded by berry flavor, mostly strawberry and blackberry. Ends sort of abruptly; maybe because of the lack of carbonation. A slight tartness to the finish.
Surprisingly, very little carbonation and light body.
Not a bad fruit beer. Doesn't have the taste of syrups as some fruit beers. Fruit is lightly placed. A hot summer day may find me rating this beer a bit higher. Enjoy!
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
