3.58/5 rDev -6.5%
A: Sort of like a hazy red color. I mean, it looks good enough. Little head but leaves lacing.
S: Bam! Hits you with sweetness and raspberry. Very fruity, very nice.
T: Pretty good but a bit unbalanced. Sweetness is a bit too much. Raspberry is a little muddled under a candy overtone. Otherwise not too bad.
M: Sits light. Carbonation is overpowering. Again, not bad but average indeed.
This being the last of the Sam Smith fruit beers I had to try, it's better than the others (except apricot which was great) this beer is still not mind blowing. The sweetness is out of control which, as I like lambics, is something to say. Other lambics/fruit beers I've had seem to have more balance. Not bad, but there are better options.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance- Cloudy, dark ruby color with two fingers worth of fizzy, reddish colored head. Fair amount of lacing.
Smell- Raspberries and a hint of malt.
Taste- Sweet raspberry flavor with some malt. Slight tart finish.
Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied. Crisp with a moderate amount of fizzy carbonation.
Overall- This is one of the better fruit beers that I have had. Very good , but if you are not into sweet fruit beers stay away from this.
