Where to Dig Up More About This Beer

Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company

Postmortem Brew Review
Turbid brown with decidedly pink hue.
Sweet honey and black berry aroma; no beer aroma.

Slim pink/white head with
fair amount of carbonation.
Slight, clinging head lace present in the glass.
Light flavor and body; refreshing black berry taste.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
What is not exactly a beer and not exactly a malt liquor and not exactly a wine cooler? I don't know, but this would come pretty close to describing the experience. That said, it was refreshing; a real change from straight up beer.

Perhaps the moon and stars were aligned just right this evening, but it was truly good and I plan to get some more of this berry nectar. Even Mrs. Reaper enjoyed it. I guess I have a sweet tooth for it myself.
