I happened to notice recently that I'd never done a review of this long time favorite. Then a few days later, I saw bottles at a local store. Yes! Time to tick this one! Poured int straight pint glass. The beer poured a medium gold color, with a definite reddish-puple tint. The beer had just a very thin ring of off-white head that had no retention or lacing.
The aroma is certainly raspberry forward, with some grainy malts showing up underneath. The taste is pretty much the same, a basic "beer" taste with the fruit being upfront, without being overpowering or cloying.
The body is good, smooth, easy, clean, and nicely carbonated, but as sticky-sweet as you might expect. Drinkability is very good to excellent, you could, and I have, drink these all day long on a sunny summers day. Overall, a very nice brew when your in the mood for a light, refreshing brew. Worth your time.
