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.
