a. Red/maroon in color. Pinkish 2 finger head when poured into a tulip glass. Not much lacing.

s. All raspberry, but a tart raspberry

t. All raspberry. Not many ale characteristics. Tastes more like a raspberry wine than a raspberry bear. To prove this point, I had my wife try it. She likes wine, hates beer. She enjoyed this.

m. Mouthfeel is actually quite nice. Even though the head dissipates, there is carbonation and balance.

o. Good beer with minimal beer qualities - which is like an oxymoron, but true.

My rating is relative to other fruit beers.

Color- ruby red. Full light pink head.

Aroma- raspberries!

Taste- the essence of raspberry, so clean, balanced sweetness, finishing ever so slightly tart.

Poured from 550 ml bottle into a Scotch whiskey glass. Tasted June 2014.
