I wasn't sure what to expect with this one, but it tastes great! Very drinkable and the blackberry taste is not overwhelming and quite subtle. Don't get me wrong, you taste blackberries, but it's not up front. Not too sweet not too tart but just right

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

pours a deep purple, slight ruby when held up to light with a pretty pink 1 finger head that fades quickly

raspberry preserves/ candied raspberry

tart raspberry, tart cherry, a touch of sweetness on the finish but overall pretty dry for what you'd expect from the smell

high carbonation and pretty thin...drinks similar to a brut or dry champagne

overall a pretty solid fruit beer, a pretty nice dessert or brunch option that i would definitely revisit

Appearance is brownish magenta with a tan collar.

Smell is fantastic, big zesty, seltzery raspberry.

Taste is oddly bland. A little malty sweetness and raspberry, but really light compared to the smell. Some earthy bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is light, a little spritzy.

Drinkability is OK. Extremely dichotomous. To bad the taste couldn't hang with the nose. Disappointing.
