3.6/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours like carbonated Kool-Aid. Foggy red, and absolutely no head. Weird. Nose is raspberry toned for sure and not much else. Flavor is overpowering raspberries. In your face, in your mouth, and up in everything else it can get into. Very tangy and distinct. Feel has a lot of carbonation and a decent liquid feel, but it leaves a real sticky feel in the mouth that seems odd. This is a decently well made beer that goes way overboard with the raspberries. It is just too much and creates a one dimensional experience.

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

A-pours a reddish amber with a fizzy white head that fades rather quickly.
S-tons of raspberries with some maltiness in the background
T-raspberries up front followed by some caramel and more raspberries in the finish. Hops providing balance but does not lend any flavor
M-medium bodied, a bit smooth and slightly above average carbonation
O-a nice flavorful fruit beer that isn't sickly sweet. Wouldn't drink it all the time but definitely worth trying
