look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Guiness Pint Glass

Appearance: Dary Ruby color, low head that disappears quickly, low lacing

Smell, a very raspberry Jam smell, low hops and hefty malt scent

Taste: this is a bit sweet for a brown ale, definitely not something I would normally buy, perhaps this is more of a desert beer than a session type ale.

Mouthfeel, with the addition of the raspberry it changes the feel of this beer, it has the malt feel to it and at the end of the drink it's a bit watery, overall it's not that bad of a beer, just not my thing.

If you are going to invest in a fruit type of beer, I think it best to stick with Lambics or Belgian styles that are conducive to fruit in general.

A-Clear deep ruby, not much carbonation at all, one finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Lots of raspberries, rather sweet, a fine line between artificial and good. Not much else though.

T-Extremely sweet raspberries. Almost like a fruit snack. But there is nothing else to the beer. And I decided it was too sweet.

M-Very light, watery not much carbonation at all.

O-Too much raspberries, too sweet, nothing else to this beer. If you absolutely love raspberries give it a whirl but not much of a reason otherwise.
