Ruby red with no head, tart nose reminding me of children's chewable vitamins.

Nice and raspberry (of course!) tart flavor, again like a children's vitamin. I was expecting at least a little ale flavor, but it was nonexistent. Nice sour aftertaste.

This brew would be an awesome hot afternoon refresher.

I'm not usually a fan of fruity beers, but I am a sucker for raspberry, and Samuel Smith gives you plenty of it! As you would expect, it pours a dark red with a nice white head, and raspberry pretty much dominates the smell and flavor. It is sweet, perhaps a little too sweet, but is also slightly tart and combined with the crisp carbonation gives a fun, refreshing beverage. Great summer beer, or apertif. Light feel, a touch sticky from the sugar, but super easy to drink, with a manageable ABV.
