Thanks to Hmph for this one received in a nice trade.
Nice looking beer, very dark red almost like concentrated raspberry juice, with a great purple head that left pretty good lacing.
Tons of raspberries in the smell, just a touch of maltiness but mostly extreme fruitiness all the way.
Amazing taste, better than I expected (and my expectations were pretty high). Raspberry heaven, moderate sweetness that perfectly balances sour and sweet flavors.
Body is pretty full, slick and very nicely carbonated. This one reminds me of various other highly fruity beers, and reminds me even more of why fruit beers remain my favorite style. Notably, I can't detect a smidge of alcohol anywhere.
I find it amazing that when it comes to fruit beers, the usual malts and hops are almost irrelevant. I just really love the fruits, but only when it's BEER, not when it's sicky-sweet wines or whatever other beverages feature fruits. Fruit beers rock!
Overall this one is tied between excellent and amazing. Nuff said.
