2.28/5  rDev -26.9%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Goldenrod body with a nice two finger head, nothing special. Expected more.

S: Wonderful smell that reminds me of Raspberry flavored iced tea from snapple, no real resemblance of beer at all in the aromas

T: I was underwhelmed by the taste of the raspberry flavor, but quickly afterwards an overwhelming, strong bitter flavor stays on your tongue and just doesn't go away. Surprisingly, as you drink this extremely surpisingly bitter beer, you'll notice it gets better as it gets warm. Maybe it was supposed to be consumed at room temperature, but even so, it is nothing special.

M: Good smooth mouthfeel, feels great going down.

D: It took me an hour to drink one of these. There's no chance i'd be able to willingly drink a second one right after the first no matter the circumstances.

2.88/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy lemon pale yellow body with a thin wispy white head that is soon gone and a gentle carbonation of big bubbles pop to the surface.

S- The fresh raspberry aroma mixes with field corn in the finish and is a bit 1-dimensional.

T- The dry almost astringent taste leads to raspberry in the finish with a sulfur dry bite that takes on a lemon pith note as it opens up.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that dries out the finish more.

O- This beer has a pleasant aroma that is a bit 1-dimentional but the taste is very light and a bit dry and harsh with no real malt or raspberry character coming through.
