Poured into DFH footed pint glass; deep, well, ruby in color, translucent, with a moderate clear white head that fades leaving a small ring of intricate foam.
Smells of fresh raspberries mostly; I'm trying to keep in mind "this is founders...this is founders..." because the smell of fruit and beer reminds me of so much gas station flavored malt liquor.
Taste is fresh, sweet raspberries over top of wide-open plain malt, wet and slightly metallic.
Mouthfeel is wet and thin.
Overall, I'm not very impressed by this beer. It's like a moderately better version of a standard raspberry-flavored malt beverage. Don't misunderstand me, it's far more drinkable and enjoyable than those abominations, but it's nothing amazing. Also, I'm not a fan of fruit beers anyway; I would have much rather enjoyed a raspberry sour.
