Lucky to try this one, thanks Joe!
Pours a pretty maroon-red color with nice purplish-pink head on top. Nose is not as overly sweet as some describe, but a blast of tart, fresh raspberries hits. With more exploration some of the malt comes through with a bit of alcohol, but really this is just a fruit bomb. Flavor is quite good, not cloyingly sweet, but sweet nonetheless. Just robust fruit flavor here, like fresh raspberries. Somehow it is balanced out so as to not be overpowering. Mouthfeel is medium, not too heavy and sticky, but not too light like a champagne or something. Moderate to full carbonation helps to keep this one from becoming too sticky. Overall, I like this beer, but I don't think I would want more than one. It's good, and a damn fine fruit beer, but not a beer that I'm going nuts for.
