Not a very good beer. Can smell some raspberry but barely comes through at all as far as taste goes. Horrid aftertaste, gets slightly more bearable as you drink it. Definitely not worth purchasing, maybe worth a try if a buddy's offering it for free.

By itself, this was very raspberry everything... a bit thin on the palate, and a bit cloying and sweet . This might be sacrilege, but I mixed this with a homebrewed stout (very standard and straightforward, bit roasty, generally balanced), and the resulting mix was better than the sum of its parts. About 2 parts stout to 1 part HD Raspberry. This beer does have a place, but IMHO, it is not standing solo. Would buy for this purpose!

Needs a little sugar. Seriously. Go to your cupboard and toss a teaspoon or so in the glass & mix it up! I rate it 3.95 with some sweetness added.

P.S. Corn syrup will mix much quicker than sugar. Cheers!
