In a snifter this beer was the color of grape juice. There was a very small white head.

Very sweet fruit aroma.

A pronounced raspberry taste.

Very, very sweet.

I'm not much for fruit beers; generally they're too sweet for my taste. This one was really sweet, and not that enjoyable. Like drinking a non-carbonated soda.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- A very hazy beer. A brownish amber color. A two finger light pink head.

S- Smells like raspberries. Sweet and somewhat sugary. Smells like a belgian brew. A dry smelling beer.

T- Wow, raspberries. A very intense flavor profile. A tart beer but a very strong sweetness. The raspberries taste very fresh. A plain, but sweet and breaddy malt profile that really help highlight the raspberries. A strong and intense flavor to the beer. A sipping beer spite the ABV. May be difficult to drink more then one of these.

M- A sweeter beer, thick in feel.

O- An awesome fruit beer. A bit tiring on the palate but still a good beer.
