Review

Overall Score: 5.6

Cocoa Berry is an insane mixture and crazy drink. It’s not bad, but you’re only drinking one of these due to the intense flavors (no matter how much you enjoy sours). This beer delivers on the promise of an ‘imperial pastry sour’ and is pretty shocking and fun. Cocoa Berry receives elevated points for the uniqueness and creativity, both characteristics that describe the amazing Prairie Artisan Ales Brewery. While Prairie suggests many flavors are included in the palate, this beer is properly named – Cocoa Berry. The cacao nibs and raspberry are the most prominent flavors. This is the first chocolate-raspberry sour I’ve consumed, and it’s an interesting combination. If you enjoy sours or creative ales, this is a great purchase for something truly unique. It’s not my favorite experience and I wouldn’t purchase it again, which is the reason for the lower score. It’s like most vacation destinations, you enjoy them, but you’re good doing it once and never going back to that awful city/state. Cheers Degenerates!
