Bottle into glass. Found it at Wegman's at Dick Road & George Urban in Cheektowaga, NY.

a: dark clear ruby, with a thin pinkish head that goes away fast.

s: this is one of the best drinkable things I've ever smelled. It's got all the best things about raspberries AND all the best things about malty ale. (I said "whoa raspberries!" and my husband said, "yeah, it's like you stepped in one!" I assume he meant stepped in a raspberry patch.)

t: beery enough to be more than just raspberry wine. Really lovely. Could do with being a bit less sweet, although it's not a sugary sweet, it's a malty fruitiness.

m: a liiittle too fizzy, and lighter than I expected.

o: fabulous stuff, will definitely buy again at least once a summer. It's not cheap, but it's a step up from what I was buying for the same price back home in Toronto.
