Taste is amazing, but only 2.5% alcohol by volume. So pretty weak.
This is good for the taste, if you don't feel like getting drunk, or you're already drunk and feel like drinking something with little alcohol.
The smell is amazing and smells like juice. Tastes like juice too actually.

Well, this is definitely a change. I like lambics, and this is definately a very sweet one.

Appearance - Two fingers of pinkish head, a dark reddish purple look, and medium lacing.

Smell - You get raspberries right off the hop, and a very candylike aroma. In fact, my sister says "Oh my god, it smells like raspberry campino candies"

Taste - Again, raspberries dominate. the candylike aroma carries over to the taste, which, is (like other reviewers have noted) a very 'jolly rancherish' taste. Very good though.

Mouthfeel - while you do get some carbonation, it is not overpowering. You do get sour notes, which are very pleasant after the almost overpowering sweetness.

Overall - A very good dessert or brunch beer. The next time I am having ice cream, i'll be sure to have this beer along with it.

A: Pours an extremely effervesent clear red. The head is light as fizzy and pink.

S: As for the smell. One word comes to mind....Raspberries.

T: Like the nose, this beer is basically a one trick pony. Raspberry. The berry flavor is very real and not generic in anyway. Reminds me of a raspberry sorbet.

M: On the tongue it remonds one of a sparkling wine or a wine cooler. It's light and very crisp.

Overall: Not something i would drink unless i had a jonesing for Raspberries. This isn't a bad beer by any means. I could easily see people not liking it. I found it drinkable and enjoyable.
