BJCP Style Code

Appearan­ce
Same as fruit beer.
Aro­ma
Same as fruit beer, except that some addi­tio­nal fer­men­ta­bles (honey, molas­ses, etc.) may add an aro­ma com­po­nent. Wha­te­ver addi­tio­nal aro­ma com­po­nent is pre­sent should be in balan­ce with the fruit and the beer com­pon­ents, and be a plea­sant com­bi­na­ti­on.
Fla­vour
Same as fruit beer, except that some addi­tio­nal fer­men­ta­bles (honey, molas­ses, etc.) may add a fla­vor com­po­nent. Wha­te­ver addi­tio­nal fla­vor com­po­nent is pre­sent should be in balan­ce with the fruit and the beer com­pon­ents, and be a plea­sant com­bi­na­ti­on. Added sug­ars should not have a raw, unfer­men­ted fla­vor. Some added sug­ars will have unfer­men­ta­ble ele­ments that may pro­vi­de a ful­ler finish; ful­ly fer­men­ta­ble sug­ars may thin out the finish.
Mouth­feel
Same as fruit beer, alt­hough depen­ding on the type of sugar added, could incre­a­se or decre­a­se the body.
Over­all Impres­si­on
A har­mo­nious mar­ria­ge of fruit, sugar, and beer, but still reco­gniz­ab­le as a beer. The fruit and sugar cha­rac­ter should both be evi­dent but in balan­ce with the beer, not so for­ward as to sug­gest an arti­fi­cial pro­duct.
Comments
If the addi­tio­nal fer­men­ta­bles or pro­ces­ses do not add a dis­tin­guis­ha­ble cha­rac­ter to the beer, enter it as a nor­mal 29A Fruit Beer and omit a descrip­ti­on of the extra ingre­dients or pro­ces­ses.
Com­mer­cial Examp­les
New Pla­net Raspber­ry Ale
Notes
A Spe­cial­ty Fruit Beer is a fruit beer with some addi­tio­nal ingre­dients or pro­ces­ses, such as fer­men­ta­ble sug­ars (honey, brown sugar, invert sugar, etc.) added.
