Pours a hazy dark magenta copper. The 1/4 inch khaki head fades to a thick cap on top and leaves curtains of lace.

The smell is dominated by ripe raspberry and apple juice with a grainy finish.

The taste is of ripe raspberry, apple juice and a hint of generic grains.

The texture is light bodied with medium carbonation.

Cloyingly sweet and slightly tart, this has very little beer or ale characteristics, aside from a faint grain taste and aroma.

While I'm not a big fruit beer fan, this one has me torn a bit. I'm not sure if it reminds me of a juice when I was younger, or dare I say it, my palate may be evolving? I think as of now it is the former of the two. Very sweet and crisp with little fireworks bubbles in the center of the glass once the head dissipated. Not too bad, once and a while for now.
