3.28/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to Another6Pack for the extra (my wife was not interested in trying it, so here I go.) Poured into my beer goblet.

Appearance: Nice foamy head actually gushed from the bottle as I opened it. the beer is a straw yellow with a foamy white head with staying power.

Smell: Sweet raspberry candy. Not much else.

Taste: Zippy tartness from the raspberries. This is a very dry beer. Not much at all in the way of malts or hops.

Mouthfeel: Thin body with high carbonation.

Overall: The raspberry is fine but maybe a little too potent. I like my beer to taste like beer.

3.48/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.
