A- Pours a dark reddish color with an off-white head that turns into a ring of lacing.
S- There is no mistaking the aroma. It is fresh raspberries all the way. What is great about the aroma is it smells like you have your nose to a bowl of fresh raspberries and not an artificial fruit-like aroma.
T- The taste is nothing short of amazing. Tart raspberries up front with a lingering sweetness coming in. At first, I think the sweetness will overpower but the tartness comes back in the finish to balance things out. Even though the taste is 100% raspberry, it does not taste one dimensional because there is so many waves of flavors in the taste.
M- One of the first things I noticed in the taste was the thickness of the mouthfeel. I was expecting a very light body and a high amount of carbonation but this beer is medium bodied with a moderate-average amount of carbonation.
O- Overall, I am extremely impressed with this beer. It is a must try for anyone who loves raspberries. If you love raspberries, you will love this beer. If you dislike raspberries, you will dislike this beer. Highly recommended!

Great fruit beer. I typically prefer a little more carbonation, but still very good. Rasberry flavor was very balanced with the beer. Comparable to some of the Belgian Lambics. If you've never been to Founders, it's definitely worth the trip. Come thirsty, but not hungry because they don't serve any food.

Picked up a six-pack of these a couple of days ago. I'm on my last one right now, so I figured I write a review.
Appearance: Pours out a ruby red color. Very reminscent of cranberry juice, in fact, with a decent-sized pinkish head that eventually settles and leaves almost no lacing.
Smell: The raspberries used in this stuff was very apparent from the minute I opened the bottle. Very sweet and tart smelling with a faint hint of malt.
Taste: Like the scent, raspberries dominate. Sweet at first, quickly turning slightly tart. Finishes tart, but crisp and clean with a slightly noticable malt undertone. A very well-done fruit beer, especially if you like raspberries.
Mouthfeel: Pretty good mouthfeel. Kind of creamy. The carbonation seems just about right and is actually kind of reminscent of champagne.
Drinkability: Excellent! This goes down very easy, maybe a little too easy. In fact, I found myself downing three of these in one sitting the other day. A very good spring or summer beer.
