Pours a clear raspberry red, approaching a purplish hue, with a sugar white lacing for a head.
Smells of syrupy raspberry sweetness. Maybe a hint of malt under there.
Tastes of sweet raspberry with a tartness that balances it out. Pretty much exclusively the fruit flavor, which is fresh and only ever so slightly medicinal.
Medium body with lightly bubbly carbonation and a slight sour pucker.
Founders went all in on fruit flavoring with this one, so like most fruit beers and lambics that stress the fruit, this is probably a love-it-or-hate-it brew. For my money, this is the right way to do a fruit beer. I want to taste the fruit if I choose a fruit beer and I want it to taste like real fruit, not artificial. This one pretty much hits the spot, is fairly thirst-quenching, and manages to still feel somewhat like a beer all things considered. If that sounds like your cup of tea, er, beer, then this is one of the better ones you'll find.
