A - Very little head. Deep, opaque raspberry red body.

S - Raspberry jam; tart berries; bready yeast.

T - Fresh raspberry to a mix between sweet raspberry syrup and cranberry juice like tartness.

M - A bit watery and flat on the front of the tongue. Very light carbonation. An almost clean, tart finish leaving behind a slight film.

O - I found the first few sips to be refreshing, but the raspberry juice like qualities make this a sipper. An enjoyable, fresh-tasting fruit beer. The smell was by far the most enjoyable and balanced part of the this beer.
