look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a murky reddish-brown with a finger of off-white head that has a slightly red tint to it and fades into a thin layer with little lacing.

S: What can I say other than it smells exactly like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Wheat bread aromas, peanuts, and raspberry jam. It's unusual, but quite nice.

T: Caramel and chocolate malts here with a little wheat flavor followed by some tart raspberry notes. The finish is a little watery, but leaves an aftertaste of peanuts.

M: Medium body with mid-low carbonation, this beer could use a bit more carbonation or a creamier body because it's a little watery.

O: A pretty unique but enjoyable beer, overall. It definitely smells a lot more like a PB&J than it tastes, but it's still solid.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottom of can says 189-14.

A- Certainly looks like a PBJ beer as it pours a purplish light brown color with a 3/4 inch fizzy light tan head that has a reddish tint to it and retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass. Random surface foam and non-resilient lacing.

S- Pronounced raspberry aroma with a hint of peanut butter and faint toasty malt.

T- Peanut butter comes through more in the flavor with the raspberry instead just being complementary. Slightly toasty malt provides a decent backdrop. Goes down easy and isn't too sweet.

M- I feel like the malt could've been upped a bit to give this more body as it is decidedly kind of watery. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- I figured Catawba wouldn't nail a PBJ beer (that title already belongs to Funky Buddha with No Crusts), but this isn't bad. Definitely worth getting a single like I did but a whole six-pack would be difficult to justify unless you were sharing at a party or something.

Draft on the RBWG bus. Into a snifter

Pours a light brown color with a nice head. Smell is quite amazing...it smells just like a PBJ sandwich! The taste is also great, lots of peanut butter and raspberries..again, as close to a PBJ sandwich as youre going to get. its really amazing how they were able to replicate it so well. thin feel with mild carbonation.

Overall an impressive novelty beer that you should try!
