Pours a deep violet amber. Funky head of purplish carbonation. Lace is pleasant but not outstanding.

Nose is definitely raspberries. I admit, I like it. Maybe I'm a sucker for Founders, but this isn't bad.

Taste is rich and very very raspberry. I get a trickle of sour, but plenty of sweet to round it all up. A well-tasty and enjoyable fruit ale, though definitely not a favorite from this brewery's outstanding canon.
