Poured an attractive raspberry color with less than a 1/2 finger head in a stein.

Strong raspberry aroma.

The beer was lightly carbonated.

There was little alcoholic presence in the beer. It tastes more like a fruit soda, or a fruit drink.
Refreshing, but not my style of beer. A times it almost tasted like cough syrup.

Even though I am not partial to this style of beer, it seems well brewed. There is balance in the beer.

It would work well at barbecues on hot sunny afternoons.
