Bottle poured into Samuel Smith's Organic Wheat Beer Long Pint Glass.

A - Dark almost ruby Red with quite a thick pink head which fades to a cap and stays throughout. Very sticky lacing which almost covers the sides of the glass.

S - A lot of raspberry/jam first of wall with a hint of pale malt and a little wheat. I'd say some Red Grape juice and cranberry too.

T - Big hit of sweet raspberry with a bit of wheat, a touch of hoppy bitterness and tart at the end.

M - Medium carbonation, but not too much for this style. It helps with the tart finish. Very refreshing and goes down very smooth indeed.

Great beer.
