Tasted 20 July 2013. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice deep pink with brownish shades behind it. Clear, with half-finger of pinkish-white head. Okay retention and lacing.

Smell is a balance of raspberry and malts.

Taste is similar, combining sweet caramel malts with raspberry. It's just sweet sweet sweet, with nothing to balance it. Also has a funny mouth-smacking buttery back-end.

Feel is light-bodied, kinda prickly.

A relatively weak raspberry beer, in my opinion. Not bad, but I just find it dull, and that buttery character doesn't blend well at all with the raspberry. Lastly, the raspberry is not as potent as it is in the best fruit beers. Comes nowhere close to the quality of New Glarus's Raspberry Tart, so I'll stick to that.
