Served on tap in a snifter
Appearance – The beer is served a ruby red color with hints of darker mahogany mixed within. Upon serving there is a pink tinted head floating atop the brew. The head fades over a moderate amount of time, leaving a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet and fruity with tons of raspberry aroma filling the nose. Along with the raspberry are some other lighter blueberry notes as well as some tart cherry smells. Overall it is very sweet and tart, smelling very much like a Lambic.
Taste – The taste begins with a big raspberry sweetness mixed with just a hint of tart cherry. As the flavor advances the souress increases with it taking on a little bit of a lactic acid taste. While the sourness increases, so too does the raspberry flavor largely overpowering any cherry that was present upfront. In the end some candy sweetness comes to the tongue balancing out the sour just enough to leave a very pleasant, sweet and raspberry fruit sour candy taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The higher carbonation and thinner body are great for the combination of sweet and sour making it very easy to drink.
Overall – A rather tasty fruit beer with a decent sour characteristics. It is very much like a more affordable slightly less tart Lindeman’s framboise. Overall, quite tasty.

Poured from a "stubby" 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Ruby hued, with a short cap of white foam.
Aroma-Raspberry essence, faint malt note
Taste-Tart raspberry, malt sweetness, a bit undercarbonated. Refreshing and pleasant, though a bit sweet for my taste.
