freshness dating is scratched off of bottle.
A= pours a nice red color with a pink finger of head that falls fast to a thin layer on top of the glass. Little to no lacing on the side of the glass.
S= Smells like a raspberry patch or a raspberry soda. I won't even pretend I can smell too much else in this. It's raspberries.
T= The taste follows suit. Again it's raspberries and little else. It's got a very nice flavor though. It's a natural fresh raspberry taste not really overly sugary or crazy soda like. Just a nice smooth flavor.
M= Bright and bubbly.
O= This beer is all it's advertised to be a supreme raspberry ale. It reminds me a lot of New Glarus raspberry tart actually so if you don't like in Wisconsin this is exactly what your missing. A nice bright raspberry flavor in a beer. Seek this one out. As far as fruit beers go this is at the top among the best.

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.
