3.39/5 rDev -12.2%
Pours a super effervescent garnet/purple with a sliver of purple head. No lacing or head retention
S: Raspberry not much else
T: Raspberry, rhubarb & sweet cherries up front. More of the same as this warms. Finishes dry with much cherry/berry sweetness
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation
Fairly easy to drink, not very complicated, if you like raspberries, you'll most likely enjoy this. Was happy to try this, but will not buy it again

A- Pours a deep, ruby red to almost brown color. Hazy and ruddy looking in the body with about a 1.5 finger, pink head. Retention is pretty good down to a thinner film on the top, which also laces pretty well.
S- Fruity and sweet with only the slightest bit of tart flavor detectable. This scent is fairly one dimensional all the way through the smell, with no malts to be found by the nose.
T- Wow! Holy fruit bomb! Starts with a slight hit of tart raspberry flavor before moving towards a much sweeter berry flavor. The tart to sweet progression would be ideal for a hot, humid summer day. Towards the back end of the drink, the sweetness intensifies then fades slightly to reveal just a few hints of a solid, malty backbone. Sweetness lingers a bit on the tongue after each sip.
M- Light in body and high in carbonation would lend this to feeling like your typical summer beer, but a high amount of sweetness makes this feel somewhat syrupy. The sweetness is intense across the palate, giving a slick feel.
Overall, this was much sweeter than I expected, but a good change of pace for a summer seasonal. I would recommend that anyone looking at trying this wait until it's hot as hell out, then go for it.
