The color of muddy cherry juice pours into my glass, creating a pink sudsy froth on top, about a fingers worth. The head dissipates at a quick pace but seems to cling a little bit.
Inhaling this beer is like sticking your nose into a blender mixed with plum, apples, and raspberries. There is nothing more to this beer, but that's as good of a place to be as any. Fantastic.
An equally powerful raspberry flavor in the taste as well, and tastes as fresh as the day it was brewed. The flavor is a great mixture of light tartness, sweet raspberry flavor, and a subtle bitterness up front. A little alcohol in the exhale, but very well integrated and in fact adds much to the beers complexity. The body here is a solid medium body, and has a slight heat on the swallow. Very mellow carbonation, and it's appropriate. Almost a bit sticky as well.
This beer has held up unbelievably well. I am very impressed and this certainly exceeded my expectations. Nothing at all like Rubaeus. This beer feels as authentically fruity as New Glarus' fruit beers do. Very much worth seeking out again.
