Pours ruby red, nose is tinned raspberries, and flavour is quite sweet raspberry/malt. Nice and zesty on the mouth but overall just a bit too sweet to cut it.

Bottle from Warehouse Package. Pours ruby red with no head. Aroma of raspberries and a tartness. Tastes of sweet raspberries. Very drinkable and delicious, like an alcoholic fruit juice.

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.
