A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of raspberry syrup are present in the nose. It kind of reminds me of Greman raspberry candies I used to have as a child.
T: The taste has flavors of grainy malt, wheat, and raspberries. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't a bad fruit beer as it has a decent amount of raspberry aromas and flavors and doesn't seem sweet or artificial.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours golden with a nice lingering head that laces well. Nose is strong of raspberry, unfortunately, the taste is not as pronounced. The raspberry is there, and asserts itself more as it warms, but with nothing else to make a more complex flavor profile, it comes across as a tad bland. The beer is somewhat dry, with a touch of sweetness on the finish. A nice residual raspberry flavor lingers after the finish. Body is light and is well carbonated. Overall a very good summer ale. A good choice for after cutting grass in the heat.
