(3.75) A: Beautiful clear raspberry colour with a thin head that quickly recedes to a ring. Satisfactory retention and minimal lacing.
(3.75) S: Raspberry jam, cranberries, dry woody elements, cracker-like grains, and orchard fruits. The raspberry is more of a natural and slightly sweet (jammy) aroma. The focus is definitely on the raspberry, with other fruit aromas that compliment it.
(4.0) T: Raspberry juice, grains, light wood, and tart cranberry. The raspberry is again the focus and it’s a very fresh and juicy berry taste. Other typical farmhouse qualities are a little difficult to pick out but the overall taste is very good regardless. A very pleasing dryness in the finish with a tartness and crispness throughout.
(4.0) M: Lighter bodied with a higher (fizzy) carbonation. The carbonation works well with the fruit focus.
(4.0) D: As a lover of the raspberry I have to say that this is very good. This would be an excellent spring/summer sipper outdoors somewhere.

A: The beer is quite hazy red in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high beige head that gradually died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of raspberries are present in the nose—without having any sweetness or tartness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a type of raspberry flavor similar to hard German raspberry candies (but without nearly all of the sweetness).
M: It feels very light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is especially easy to drink and seems rather unique as a fruit-flavored bière de garde. I could see this as a good choice for someone that wants to try a fruity beer but doesn't want something very sweet.

Pours a murky dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is mainly of raspberries and raspberry juice. Taste is much the same but quite watery in my opinion. There is more of a fresh raspberry flavor than other raspberry beers I have had in the past though. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but has a better smell in my opinion.
