Best Raspberry beer I've ever had. It was also available in Nitro at the brewery. Goes great with Founders oatmeal stout!

Serving: Bottle
Glassware: Standard pint
Appearance: Not much head at all but a bit of lacing. Hazy and cranberry colored.
Aroma: Fresh raspberries and a bit of yeast.
Taste: Linear. Raspberry jam
Mouthfeel: Sticky.
Overall: Well if you like raspberry jam (and I do) this might be for you. Serve as a dessert or digestif.

Pours out a hazy ruddy red. Head is slightly off-white to pink. Nose is raspberry candy. Flavor is raspberry, raspberry, raspberry. That's about it. Pretty sweet overall. The fruit contributes some tartness, but it isn't enough to balance the sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky. I love raspberries, but this is a bit much to finish a 12 oz. I would like this in a 4 oz. serving as a digestif much better.

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.
