Pours a clear ruby red with a medium slightly pink tinged head with good lacing. Aroma of raspberry and pomegranate fill the senses. A sweet raspberry flavor, fruity with some pale malt and mild yeast notes, and sweet tartness. A medium body, crisp and smooth mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is sweet berry flavors, some sweet tart notes and some mild malt and yeast on the end. This brew seems well balanced and not overly sweet. Overall a good and refreshing summertime brew.
