12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy reddish pink color. The head is a two finger Jigglypuff shade that doesn't feature the best retention. Spotty lacing is left behind.
S: Raspberry. That's kind of it, really, but it's a nice singular note regardless.
T: The flavors are primarily raspberry juice and cream. Those flavors are nice, but it's kind of one note to a fault. I really don't have much to say other than this one would do better on a hot day.
M: Medium body, sweet finish, high carbonation. This feel is so average, it's leaving me at a loss for words.
O: I think I preferred Cerise to this one. I've been looking to try this for a while now, so in that regard, this is a mild letdown. Of course, this beer's monotony means I don't have to write a long review. Wooo.

Pours an attractive red shade, somewhere in between burgundy and cardinal. A soft pink covering of foam rests nicely on top. The aroma is sweet and complex. While a trace of hops and grains can be detected, the drinker is overwhelmed with ripe raspberry. A tart aspect mixes well with what is perceived to be the malts. The flavor is quite similar to the qualities in the aroma... it is a bit earthy, a little bitter, and is very wine-like. It's got a nice, crisp finish... similar to a fresh cider. Overall I rather like this one, especially as I am not the biggest fan of fruit beers. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys adult beverages, except perhaps those who might not like something that's moderately tart.
