Thanks to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an amberish color wiith a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sour, berries. Taste is tart, lots of berries, a bit of grains and malts. Feels light in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and enjoyable beer.
Serving type: can

I CAN't believe that I am only the second person to review this from a CAN! Memorial Day 2012 rolls on!
The head was still a pinkish-white, but retention was much lower in this case. Color was a deeper reddish-amber, but not as hazy as from a bottle. Nose was still filled with raspberry, but not as cloying as from a bottle. Mouthfeel was about the same - slightly on the thin side. The taste was not as prevalent as from a bottle, more muted. Finish also lacked some of the oomph that the bottle imparted. Bottom line: if somewhere that both are available, go for bottle or draft, but if hiking, camping, going to the beach, reach for the CANned version. That, or if they begin putting fresh puree in CANs, then it will render the point moot.

Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: straight amber, head was thick at first thanks to the bartender. White head rose to maybe a full inch, drifting to ad settling to nothing.
Smell: smells uh a little like candy if you ask me,
Taste: little sour, no its not my first time having this but it's like a sweet sour that is light of the hop taste but sweet and sour.
Mouth: medium but not too sticking.
Overall: I bought a pint just to review it and honestly not worth my time nor yours. It looks good taste maybe alright but I have had much better from Abita not to mention better "fruit" beers. Salud!
Serving type: on-tap
