look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle with no date. paid 3 bucks for a single bottle, wasn't too sure what it was, bought it on the strength of the FOunder's name alone.

Look is a dim, semi-cloudy, bing cherry color. smell is full of juicy/tart raspberries, some wheat. taste has pale malt/wheat with big raspberry presence. taste is wine cooler-ish, but enjoyable. feel is light and effervescent.

I liked it, but only marginally better than a comparable Liney's product.

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.
