Dark Horse Raspberry Ale
12 oz bottle
Moderate pour in a goblet.
Unknown brewing, picked 07/07
Poured a golden orange with a medium frothy somewhat diminishing white head.
Smelt of raspberries, bread, grassy hops.
Taste was upfront moderate bitter raspberries and its leaves with light sweet bread followed by a moderate to strong bitter spoiled fruit and dried leaves with more light sweetness.
Palate was light bodied, watery, fizzy and lightly astringent.
Overall, this is the most awkward tasting raspberry beer I've ever had. The finish is striking and unpleasant. The tart raspberry taste is nice, but very subdued. It's like a light pale ale with raspberries. Interesting, intriguing, and innovative, but not inspiring.
