Very good fruit beer. The flavor of the raspberries really comes out without the beer either being too sweet or too tart.

Poured into a True Beer flute, a reddish, amber clear color with a pink tinged bubbly white head. The aromas is fresh raspberries and malt.

Flavor is more of the same, a very nice presentation of the raspberry flavor with a simple malty base. Very tasty, nicely balanced between tartness and sweetness.

Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Goes down very easy. A good summertime beer.

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.
