Deep red, almost purple in appearance. Absolutely gorgeous in sunlight.

Raspberries, only raspberries.

Tastes immediately of raspberries, go figure. Not much to say about the taste aside from that this is like drinking raspberry pop with bite.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated which goes very well with the tartness of the raspberries.

Overall this is only a mediocre showing from Founders, but a must try for anyone with a palate for fruity brews.

This is not my favorite beer and I have never been a huge fan of fruity beers like this. I know a ton of people that absolutely love this beer though. For me, I think it is too sweet to really enjoy with any sort of food. I do enjoy this on occasion, but it tends to upset my stomach.

Serving type: on-tap
