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!
