Okay, this is the last of the (known) not-so-good beers in the fridge for the evening...
A- Dark copper in color with ruby highlights. A little on the hazy side. Very minimal head
S- Smells like artificial raspberry syrup. Surprisingly, the honey does manage to make its presence known. unfortunately, everything that is characteristic of "beer" does not.
T- Ick. i think this may have been hanging out by the Wild Blue & partying 'til the wee hours of the morning. horrible artificially sweet raspberry with a hint of booze in the finish. that crap-berry flavors lingers in your mouth.
M- I didn't have the fore thought to analyze the mouthfeel along with the taste so now I have to actually drink more of this... thin to medium bodied. Very little carbonation. bad.
D- It only gets a 1.5 because if absolutely forced to it, I could drink this.

Because I need to lower my rAvg, 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. I'm not sure how old the bottle is, but I got it on clearance, so...
A: Pours a moderately hazy tawny color. Great head on this one, a two finger offwhite shade with fantastic texture. Retention isn't great, but lacing is stunning.
S: Raspberry candy. Tons of general sweetness with an artificial 'kick' to it as expected. A hint of wheat malt tries to come through, and almost does.
T: Fruity sweetness to start, before rounding out to a nondescript wheat finish. The chemical character is a bit pervasive in general. Still, it manages to be extremely bland instead of actively offensive. Congrats, I suppose?
M: Not as carbonated as I anticipated, but it goes down easily enough. Still, the chemical astringency on the finish needs to go.
