2011 vintage

pours a beautiful raspberry puree color. with no back lighting the body still captures all the light in the room and has a brightness to it. thin off white head settles just as quickly as it rises.

nose is very big yet simple. nothing but freshly crushed raspberries.

taste is more like juice and vodka than a beer. tasty yet simple.

mouthfeel is very wine like, cheap syrupy wine. little burn in the back of the throat from the alochol.

gets better as it warms. i would of been better off waiting till i had someone to share with. not that it's bad, it's just a little too much for me. hopefully it keeps for a day in the fridge.
