Pours a deep ruby with a big-bubbled off-tan head that quickly reduces to a thin-looking ring. Lacing is mild and spotty.
The nose is comprised of ripe raspberries, and just that. Maybe a touch of caramel, maybe. I'm starting to get really think that you can't make a fruit beer without it being completely one-dimensional.
The palate is, again, one-dimensional with regards to flavor, but I dig the structure- nicely sweet with a tart fruit edge and a lingering juiciness on the dry-malt finish, the only time I can make out the 'brownness' of this.
Not a huge fan of this, but I don't hate it either. I can't stand anything that doesn't have complexity in its aroma/flavor, but the mouthfeel is alluring enough to always make me come back for another sip, which is a nice achievement.
