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

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.

Poured from a corked & caged bottle into a tulip
A- pours a dark shade of purple/red with a *very* pink head that fades quickly. Damn, that's one pretty beer...
S- tons of raspberries, and nothing but.
T- a little boozy, actually. Light raspberry taste. Bit of a champagne flavor. Not what I expected, not too memorable
M- medium bodied, on the thin side
O- it went downhill as soon as I started drinking...started off nicely when I poured and sniffed, but that was it.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours a murky dark reddish-brown with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, raspberry fruit, and raspberry juice aromas. Taste is much the same with raspberry juice flavors on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid raspberry presence but the mouthfeel is slightly off in my opinion.
