If I want fruit flavor I'll go buy some fruit.
You do realize that they have brewed beer with fruit for centuries. There are as many styles of beer as there are opinions. It's akin to saying "I like my cheese to taste like cheese". "Beer flavor" isn't even a real concept, especially given basically the "essence of beer" flavored beer of today.
Haven't drank in a decade, but the facts are the same.

I've been drinking a little Shiner myself lately. Good stuff, haven't seen this flavor yet but I'll give it a shot.

Iíve got to get ahold of some of this. I really, really like bourbon barrel aged beers, ales and wines.

Going to have to give this one a try. I don't drink often or much when I do, but was able to try the Balcones Texas Bock and liked it. This is the inverse of that marriage, so should be good.

I havenít had it since 2015, or 2016 but Shiner Haymaker was the best Shiner beer Iíve had. Been tough to find not living close to TX since I lived in NM in the time frame previously mentioned.

Which ďbeerĒ flavor of beer do you prefer? Lager, Hefeweizen/witbier, bock, porter, stout, Kolsch, Pilsner, Dubbel, Triple, Saison, Helles or Barley Wine? Or maybe you prefer Ales? India Pale Ale, American Pale Ale, regular Ale, brown ale, cream ale, old ale, or maybe scotch ale?

Btw- most of those have been brewed with some form of fruit, fruit juice, or skin (or all of the above) for thousands of years

Really? I bought a six pack when it was out and it was pretty much one of the most repulsive beers Iíve tried.

Agreed! Shiner bock and the Shiner blonde are solid drinking beers, And also agree with the above that the ruby Red is terrible

Or good beer like good bourbon comes in many different flavor profiles. Some just taste better than others

I personally donít drink beer to get drunk. I drink it to enjoy and like trying different beers. Youíd be amazed how the flavor of some beers changes depending on the temp at which itís served.
