I was lucky to get a free 1/3 bottle with Matty, the owner of the Liberty in Charlotte, NC about 18 months ago. That set me on a quest for this stuff. Let me say, first off, Im not a big fruit beer fan.

The appearance of this stuff is like carbonated blood. Deep hue of purple/pink deliciousness.

The smell is nothing short of amazing. Big raspberry nose.

My first sip and I was hooked. I could not believe you could get that much raspberry flavor in a beer. It hit me right in the salivary gland and stayed there for a good 30 seconds.

The mouthfeel was silky and wonderful.

Overall, this is by far my favorite fruit beer. I got lucky enough to score 4 bottles on my own (still have 3 cellared) and also, when Founders had their event at the Liberty, I drank 4 nice big glasses of this stuff. Spoke with the brewmaster from Founders at the event, and told me to crack it open this fall. Think I will listen!

I bet this is a big panty dropper. Women would definitely love this too. Think I may crack open a bottle with some italian ice and share with my wife. Look out sheets!
