12 oz bottle poured into a globe at fridge-cellar temperature.
L – Deep raspberry red color with a 1-finger bubbly, pink head. Decent retention with some spots of lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.
S – Raspberries and bready, grainy malt. It reminds me a lot of Cerise except with raspberries.
T – Sweet nearly all the way through with lots of raspberries and some bready, grainy malt. Toward the finish, the raspberry flavor shifts to an earthier, bitter flavor, much like what happens with actual raspberries.
F – Light-to-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a sticky but crisp mouthfeel, and a bittersweet and very dry finish. Dry, bittersweet raspberry flavors linger for a while.
O – This is a nice fruit beer. It reminds me a lot of Cerise, of course with raspberries instead of cherries. I think this is better-crafted than Cerise with a stronger base beer and noticeably fresh fruit being used (rather than extracts). I still prefer fruit beers that are mostly beer with a touch of fruit rather than the other way around, but this tasty and drinkable one will do. Nice job from Founders.
