3.15/5 rDev -2.8%
Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.
And I'm listening to "All Along the Watchtower"... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises dry wheat, raspberry syrup, and a touch of corn. The taste leads with the corn before immediately getting blindsided by the very artificial-tasting raspberry syrup. Then everything returns to a bland corn-y situation. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this beer ain't my jam (no raspberry pun intended), what with the artificial taste and one-sad-note offering. It's not horrible, but I'll likely never drink one again.

3.45/5 rDev +6.5%
What I would call a nice after dinner beer. The pour is dark red/purple with an off white head. The smell is full of berries, specifically raspberry. The taste is similar although a little more reserved. Very sweet which made it a bit hard to pair with most food besides deserts though. Overall a very nice beer.

3.7/5 rDev +14.2%
Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Fairly clear copper colored body with a foamy white head that retains well. Some soapy lines of lacing.
Aroma: Malt sweetness blended with a raspberry puree aroma.
Taste: Very malty and smooth, just enough raspberry notes to make it what it says it is, and thankfully not too cloying.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy.
Overall: Not outstanding, but good by my standards.
