3.71/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

We pop the cap and cork and pour a brew of muddy pale maroon. It holds a brief half finger tall head of pink rose colored bubbles. Rings of lacing appear, but only when the beer starts to disappear. There is a definite haze about it, with light flecks of sediment suspended towards the bottom of the glass. Carbonation appears moderate. The aroma smells of raspberry sorbet mixed with raw raspberry jam, seeds and all. This gives a palpable heaviness to the sweetness that generally overpowers the light malty base. With warmth comes a thick irony vibe, reminding us of the smell of blood. Light plastic phenols also come out, along with a metallic yeastiness. Our first impression is that this beer is definitely nicely tart, with an equally as robust presentation of the base fruitiness of raspberries. As we sip, the flavoring opens with tart raspberry flavoring, tart Smarties candy bite, fermented raspberries, metallic tin, sugary sweet fruit juiciness, and a lighter pale malt. At the peak of the swallow we get more sweetness, but here it is of candied raspberries and white sugariness. This effectively cuts the soured bite until the finishing wash where it comes back in full, along with genuine raspberry juiciness, coiny yeast, saltiness, tea leafiness, and the soured pucker of raspberry seeds. The aftertaste breathes of more malt than anywhere else in the flavoring, bitter fermented raspberries, green grassiness, seed, and astringent yeasty slickness. The body is medium, and the carbonation is medium, but with a good foam when swirled around the mouth. There is an initial juicy coating and syrupiness, but the mouth is ultimate dried, puckered, and popped. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks nicely.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the flavoring. The fact that real raspberries were added to the mix was very apparent, making for a leafy, organic vibe, and a gritty realness. The nose, on the other hand, was very heavy with a strange syrupy sweetness that had real notes to it, but made for a strange overall blend. Either way, this beer drinks nicely and tastily, and is as good as you would expect from any Lindemans product.
