a. Red ale with brownish undertones. Single finger head with did not last.

s. Fruity and sweet, almost like a wine cooler smell

t. Raspberry with a hint of malt. The after-taste reminds me of a wine cooler from back in the 80s. - been craving a revisit of this beer.

m. Very smooth going down.

o. A bit too sweet for me, and I like sweeter beers. This was very good, would revisit on a summer day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- deep ruby red color

S- raspberrys (obviously), more perfumey and floral than overpoweringly raspberry like a Lindemans Framoise.

T- raspberry, light to moderate sweetness, malty, slight sugary syrup aftertaste that I don't really care for, but not something that ruins it for me. moderate carbonation that quickly dissipates.

MF- moderate carbonation, moderate body

O- First time trying a fruit beer from Founders. A very nice raspberry fruit beer. Unfortunately I have been spoiled by knowing what a New Glarus Raspberry Tart tastes like, so most everything else will pail in comparison.
