355ml bottle. A bit of obfuscation by the importer on label, in that they don't specify an origin for this offering - thankfully the specified website solves that lingering question.

This beer pours a pale, orange-tinted amber colour (strange, but I'm not judging, not just yet), with one finger of thinly foamy, somewhat soda-pop bubbly off-white head, which leaves pretty much nada in terms of lace around the glass as it rather quickly blows off.

It smells of leafy, fairly vegetal raspberries, following closely by an astringent grainy maltiness, more 'back of the barn' (thank you Cletus Spuckler) than yer typical beer input, and a sort of sour, unpleasant mustiness. The taste is more nasty sorghum graininess than anything, as the fruitiness of the raspberry not so subtly fades away, readily replaced by an additional candy corn/corn syrup ickiness, and some further back-forty vegetal esters.

The carbonation is pretty laid-back, and ashamed, I'm assuming, the body on the light side weight-wise, and kind of thin and watery as well. It finishes on the sweet side, as the substitute grain shows some potent, if not exactly welcome, staying power, the titular fruit exhibiting a bit of late-game chutzpah.

Raspberries have a certain sense of resiliency to them, but even they seem incapable of overcoming such ill-fated products as these - such a typically enjoyable fruit shouldn't have to put up with the nasty side-effects of a sub-standard (dictated, unfortunately) malt co-star. Not entirely awful, but still very much like putting lipstick on a pig.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a light pink and orange hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Fruity raspberry aroma

T: Slightly tart raspberry and fruity flavor. Crisp and clean and finishes slightly dry.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Interesting gluten free raspberry brew – worthy of a try.
