3.4/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is a light pink color with a one finger fizzy head.
Aroma is grain, raspberries, malt.
Taste is a strange mix of raspberry, sugar candy and malt.
Lots of clashing flavors but in the end the raspberry candy flavor wins.
Too sweet for me. Compared to other better fruit beers it lacks well rounded flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium and crisp.
Glad I tried it but I couldn't drink more than a few sips.

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.
