Well, I almost passed on this one, but my wife convinced me to try it (I had to then split it with her). Pours a very dark purple, almost black, into my tulip glass. Interesting, dark pink head(never seen that one before). Smells strongly of sweet fruit, like rasberry (duh) or strawberry. Tastes a bit like a wine cooler (not that I've ever had one!), but something holds the fruit back from overpowering. Part of that must be the mouthfeel, which is a little thicker and less carbonated that a wine cooler. Geez, the alcohol is well hidden. This is not my favorite style of beer, but it is tasty and refreshing on this extremely hot day (meanwhile, I'm sitting in A/C).
