When taking the first sip of this beer it tastes like raspberry juice and you will think oh man for 8% this is pretty delicious, but the aftertaste is like someone spilled their lager into your cup of juice. Drinking more than one of these at a time made me sick because of how sweet it was. I cant safely say that its NOT my type of lager.. or that i even consider it a lager. Its worth a try though, some people enjoy that overly sweet taste. I consider it more of a sugary mixed drink, but that's just my opinion.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass

Appearance- The beer pours a hazy pink hued reddish-brown color with a big billowy pink head. The bubbles that compose the head pop over time leaving a decent level of streaky pink lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is massively sweet of a raspberry smell. It is sugary and super potent with it being detected upon opening the bottle and permeating the room when poured. It is very sweet and actually rather nice and candy like.

Taste – This is one super sweet tasting beer. It begins huge of a sugary and non-descript artificial berry flavor. The massive sweetness grows even stronger taking on a berry/raspberry fruit-juice/ soda like taste. Even at 8 % abv very little alcohol is detected on the tongue (just a hint) with the flavors in the end leaving a massively sweet cloying taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the brew is on the average side in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average to actually slightly lower side for a fruit beer. The feel is a bit off as a slightly higher carbonation and lighter body may have been slightly more appropriate.

Overall – Not my cup of tea. Massively sweet. If you want something fruity and sugary tasting then this is it, if not then you may want to pass up this one.
