Poured from 12oz bottle into strange tulip type glass -

A: Poured a translucent ruby color with light brown hues,one and half finger head that seemed to hold it's retention ,thick sticky webbing as it subsided,good carbonation.

S: Light raspberry hints with slight malts.

T: Raspberry upfront with a mild creaminess. some sour notes with a decent malt backing,some light chocolate hints as well.

O: Overall this was a light crisp and somewhat refreshing fruit beer,my first fruit beer and although It's not my favorite style I would drink it again as a desert beer or a night cap.

Thin head subsides quickly atop a bungundy and brilliantly clear brew. Aroma is of sour raspberries with with the lightest touch of a stale hop scent. Flavor is pretty nice as there is a nice interplay between the chocolaty malt and the sweet and sour raspberry flavors though i don't detect any hops which may be what the brewers intended though i like a little hoppiness in all my beers. A carbonic bite actually gives this beer a bit more of a raspberry attitude. Very nice beer to drink and a good beer to give to hardcore fruit beer drinkers to illustrate the balance of fruit and malt.
