Pours a clear pinkish copper color with a frothy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of raspberries and sweet malt.

Tastes of the sweet raspberries. Raspberry notes lead off with some sweetness and a bit of tartness as well. A bit more malt adds in with a touch of bread, but plays off of the sweetness. Not particularly complex, but I feel it is done pretty well.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a raspberry beer that well, tastes like rapsberries. I can't complain about it, but it is a touch sweet for me and I would like some more tartness.
