Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Label says Enjoy By: 12APR15

A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of sheer surface foam. Nearly no lacing.

S- Straight up raspberry preserves. Like I stuck my nose into a jar of Smucker's jelly. And I'm not complaining.

T- Taste follows the nose only with a toasty malt quality. Very straightforward in its delivery. You want raspberry? There it is.

M- Slightly syrupy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Though there's certainly not a lot of complexity here, it accomplishes what it sets out to do: give a nice, fruity snap of sweetness along with the malty balance.

I liked it even though it was 5 mos past its best buy date. I think it will taste of more berries if it were fresh. I learned my lesson, even if my beer cellar is organized that doesn't mean my fridge is. ugg
