3.33/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: pours a light copper/dark burnt orange color, small head, mostly clear

Smell: berry, tart, slight malt scent, cinnamon, earthy tones--very aromatic and relaxing smelling

Taste: tart, yet sweet raspberry flavor, nutty, slightly malty

Mouthfeel: very carbonated but light in body--almost too much carbonation in my opinion

Overall: For a fruit inspired beer, this is one of the better. However, it can get old and seem redundant after a while--the sweetness becomes slightly overwhelming.. but for every once in a while, it's a great option!

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.
