I reviewed the Organic Strawberry last week and loved it, so it's time to give this one a shot!

A- Looks dark copper with a pinkish head (one finger or so, which doesn't last too long) and some decent lacing.

S- Smells like tart fruit, thankfully not artificial. Not sure if I'd be able to tell it was raspberry simply due to the smell, though.

T- Tastes like tart raspberries. The aftertaste is pleasant and lingers for quite a bit.

M- Light and fruity, but not thin or watery. Perfect for this type of beer.

Overall, I like it, but I was far more impressed with the strawberry. I suppose it depends on your fruit preference, though. That said, the Organic Strawberry had more of a strawberry/sweet flavor than this does a raspberry one.

Poured from the bottle into a wine glass.

Pours a hazy reddish color with some off white head. The smell is quite mild and not overly fruity. The flavor is quite sweet and full of raspberries. A bit like fruit juice with an acidic note as well. Nothing I need to have again.
