A: The beer is a light shade of orange, and very hazy. When pouring the beer, I noticed it had a slightly pink appearance to it. It looked similar to the color of a light rosé wine. The head is mostly white, with a tint of pink to it. It's very thin, leaving a small ring around the glass. Although it has very little head and not much lacing, it still looks interesting. Minor lacing is comprised of very fine bubbles.
S: I smell raspberries. It's very faint, but it smells a lot like raspberry sorbet. There's also a slightly "sickly" smell to it. It sounds more terrible than it really is. It's kind-of a souring smell, but it doesn't really smell bad.
T: The flavor of this beer is very light and subdued. At first I get a leafy flavor, followed by a biscuit flavor, and then the raspberry pops in every now and then. It's not strong raspberry flavor like a wine cooler or anything. It tastes more mellow like how juiced fruit mixed with water tastes (ever have fresh squeezed orange juice or lemon-aid?).
M: The mouthfeel is very light, and wet. It is a refreshing beverage.
O: Overall I thought the beer works really well as a refreshment or something to to drink with a very light dessert or light meal. It would make a good lawnmower beer. This is very reminiscent of Abita's Strawberry Harvest Lager, so if you enjoy that beer I believe you will enjoy this one. I enjoyed drinking it.

This is the perfect beer for lady's who don't like beer. This was one of the first beers I gave my wife. She liked it but now that she has acquired the taste of beer she can't stand it. What makes this beer cool is that it has a fruity essence without a sweet fruit taste. This is a beer I would never drink myself but keep on hand for those inexperienced beer drinkers.
