3.28/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-Almost purple out of the bottle with a vivid white foam.

Smell-Like raspberries in candy form. Almost medicinal.

Taste-First time I tasted it I thought it tasted like a raspberry Tootsie Pop. Something that would work for dessert. Second time I tasted it all I got was the medicine flavor and tongue coating.

Mouthfeel-Light with a finish that somewhat drops off and coats the mouth. Yikes.

Overall-Way too much medicine. The other fruit beers really benefit from the oaking to tone down the overwhelming flavors of the fruit. Hopefully next year they will do that for the Brainless Raspberries and help it out a lot.

Bottle says Release 11 & 10% ABV

A: poured into a tulip to a reddish gold with a small off white head that fades quickly but leaves nice lacing
S: smells of fruity esters, spicy yeast and raspberries
T: taste is raspberries, spices, yeastyness, fruity esters, and more raspberry. swallow is raspberry, and some light maltyness with some more fruity esters and a hint of alcohol
M: this beer is a slittle slick and sits a little heavy on the palate and carbonation is slightly prickly. the finish on this beer is ever so slightly drying
O It's a great beer and the fruit addition is a nice touch. it has great flavors and decent balance without being over the top and it isn't too heavy for the summer heat.
