look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice brownish/ruby red color to it. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of raspberries, slight floral hops and bready malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite raspberries, faint floral hops, bready malts and a slight grassiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served from a 341ml bottle to a tall pilsener glass

A: A very hazy red topped with a very creamy looking pinkish white head. Lacing and head retention was fantastic.

S: Raspberries and a bit of floral hops in the background. Nothing is too powerful

T: The raspberries are perhaps not as bold as I would have thought even though it definitely is there are you can taste it. A touch of sourness is available. Some floral hops are in the mix as well making a strange contrast with the raspberries. The finish leaves a metallicy/grainy flavor that is really not that appealing.

M: Very easy drinking and nice bodied. Very smooth going down.

O: A pretty decent beer but not worth the price for me. I can get a 6 of their apricot ale for the price of 4 of these and it's way better imo. Wasn't too astounding besides looks and mouth feel honestly.

3.71/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type - 341ml bottle poured into a small pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy pink/red colour with a finger and a half of off/white pink-hued, creamy looking head. Pretty unique looking beer to say the least.

Smell - Some wheat notes, and a faint bit of raspberry. A lingering yeast smell.

Taste - Shockingly, it tastes like raspberries. If you like subtle fruit beers (I certainly don't) then avoid this one, because the raspberry comes on strong and stays with you right until the finish. This is seriously sweet. If you can get over the punch-in-the-face raspberry, you might notice some light wheat/grain notes as well.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light, maybe even medium bodied. Carbonation is pretty low.

Overall - 3.75/5 Considering I don't like raspberry anything, this is actually a pretty good fruit beer. Another solid effort from a great brewery.
