look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from my CBS snifter. beer poured a fairly watery pink. thin foamy head fizzed away as quick as it appeared. streaky spotty lacing left traces of where the beer was on the glass as i sipped it. smell is raspberry. taste matches the nose but is rather thick. a face full of fresh berries. feel is on the thick side. beer is fresh fruit. new glarus has nothiung to worry about, but this is far from the worse veggie beer i've tried. a nice break from cerise, but a bit on the syrupy side...enjoyable though. glad to have a 4 pack and might need to seek out another.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

A: pours a dark ruby with barely any pinkish head that quickly fizzles away into a few bubbles with little lacing.

S: sweet and tart raspberries dominate the nose. Not much else going on.

T: sweet and tart raspberry flavors dominate here as well with just a slight yeast flavor on the aftertaste.

M: medijm body with lowish carbonation, this beer could use more carbonation to help it avoid being sticky sweet. It feels like an 8% or higher beer from the sweetness.

O: Raspberries. That's about all I can say about this beer since that's about all that's going on. I love raspberries, but I look for something more in a beer other than tasting like raspberry juice mixed with a bit of soda water. It's not offensive or bad, but there just needs to be some depth.
