3.63/5  rDev -15%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright clear red. Beautiful color. Not much of a head though.

Smell - Tons of raspberries. Acidic raspberries and some grain. As it warms, I get a slightly buttery off aroma.

Taste - Tart raspberries. Almost no sweetness. Grain and a bit of caramel malt. The off flavor from the nose comes out as it warms up. Makes it tastes creamy and a little bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium light and tart. More of a fruit tartness than a beer sourness though.

Overall - This would be really great if not for that weird flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice deep ruby red color to it. It has a nice pink head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet and tart raspberries, wheat and some funk.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has sweet/tart raspberries, funk, some breadiness and wheat.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas.

4.46/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 341 bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Bottle Date: 2013/07; Poured: 2013/08/24

A: Blood red and almost clear (a feat for a wheat beer)! It pours to a short light red (but not pink) bubbly head which falls fast to a thin collar and no lacing.

S: A blast of fresh raspberries which are both sweet and tart; a hint of sourness and maybe some lemon acidity. The primary focus here are raspberries!

T: Wow, massive raspberry flavor, both sweet and tart, not that fake, sugar added, fake cloying sweetness of so many other fruit beers. A nice amount of acidity and a touch of saltiness comes through as the beer warms and a bit of ‘wheatiness’. The finish is long and tart and full of raspberry goodness!

M: Light body and lots of carbonation; very light and refreshing on the palate, a challange for a beer at almost 6% ABV.

O: Fantastic beer! From the nose to the start and through the finish, this is full tribute to raspberries.
