3.35/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer pours a subdued pinkish color. I have never seen a beer this color before. No head to speak of.

Smell is nice. Tons of raspberries. Very fresh and fruity. Really no complexity here though. All raspberries and nothing else.

Taste is good. Again, fruity, raspberry. Slightly dry finish, which is nice. Mouthfeel is nice, perfect carbonation. This is a tough beer to review. In no way is it a great beer; nor is it a bad one. It is not complex in any way, but for what it is, it tastes pretty darn good. It is a raspberry beer, and if you like raspberries and beer, this is worth a shot.

3.69/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
