An aggressive pour yields a hilariously looking pink half finger of foam, the larger sized bubbles pop quickly leaving islands scattered across the surface, the lacing like the residue in a cooking pot. Watermelon pink in color, average clarity but glows sufficiently to hold your gaze. Raspberries, raspberries and more raspberries in the nose, bracing blow of sour lemon, suggestion of watermelon as well, if you really focus there's a peat moss, lichen foresty aspect but then it's back to the raspberries. Full-bodied, the sourness and acidity are really what makes it of the high quality it is, keeps things moving at a brisk pace and shaves off excess sweetness. The raspberry flavor concentrated and ripe more than sugary for sugary's sake. Again, the lemon edge helps frame the fruit nicely. Lemongrass and alfalfa notes odd but welcome. The carbonation hits just the right level of froth to aid in avoiding a sugar coma. Full finish without being tiresome. Flavorful until the last drop.
