3.5/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a mug.

A: A dark and hazy straw color, with a small head.

S: The raspberries really come through in this one, followed what smells like wheat. Also, a little fizzy in the nose.

T: Again the raspberries come through quite heavily. There are also hints of citrus fruits, and perhaps a little malt coming in the mix later. Berry heavy is the key here. The mouthfeel is thicker than one my expect for such a fruity drink.

D: It's drinkable in the sense that's it's inoffensive. This would be great for someone who loves fruity drinks, but there not a lot of beer taste in this one. It's nice to have some at a table outside at the Edgefield, or Grand Lodge with some dessert in the late summer, but other than that, I can't quite place it.
