Snuck a few sips from my SWMBO's pint glass while we're sitting here watching Ghost Adventures.
A: Pours a hazy malty peach color with only slight head and a barrista's hint of lacing across the surface.
S: Smells of raspberries and wet hay on the nose.
T: Hints of raspberry, mango and star fruit on the tongue with a biscuit yeast middle. Nice balance on the alcohol with a touch of plum on the aftertaste. Not over fruity, just well balanced.
M: Drinks easily. Very refreshing beer. Minimally carbonated.
O: Very nice crowd pleasing spring festival concert going beer.

Poured from a bottle. Has a clear golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is faintly raspberry, and this is probably the best part of the beer. The flavor has hardly any raspberry, but more of a wheat. Even then, there isn’t much. Carbonation is low to nothing, and the beer leans on the watery side. Unfortunately this just isn’t a very good beer, and I happen to like fruit beers.

I like this raspberry ale because it has more of a malt base than just white wheat, and while the berry doesn't come through and blow your mind, and it doesn't stand out really in any way, its important to remember that this is good because its different, innovation pays, at least for me. hazy almost amber copper color to this, minimal white head and a pink tint. the nose mixes sweet and tartness of the berry with a sweeter and larger malt profile than usual for a fruit beer, which to me is this beers most redeeming asset. the taste has a surprising amount of front of flavor hops to it, before the fruit flashes in and then the malt finishes it. an odd flavor journey really, filling for the style, and without a ton of real raspberry in the taste. I do like the mix of richer grain and fruit. fuller bodied and rather poorly carbonated, but a cool beer nevertheless.
