4.3/5  rDev +28.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle. Had during the Dark Horse tasting.

A- Pours a light reddish semi-hazy color. Two finger light tan head comes and ends on a cap after a minute. No real lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Raspberry jam is the first thing I smell. Light bready malts in the background but the raspberries come through this and only let them come through in hints. I am quite surprised that the raspberry is super huge..smells like summer to me.

T- Big raspberry upfront in the beer. The bready malts are kind of in the background and only come into play in the back end of the beer. There is a light "other" fruity smell that I can't put my finger on. The taste though is mostly raspberry and to be honest I mostly like it. The bottle doesn't lie about what it is.

M- Light medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little higher than what I liked but still good. Raspberry left all over the palate and well into the aftertaste. Alcohol is a little drying on the palate after each sip.

D- This is a very refreshing beer that would be perfect during the summertime. I think Dark Horse pretty much hit the nail on the head with this beer. Good job guys. Perfect beer for people who like fruity beers.
