Poured into a tulip. Thanks to alcstradamus for this one.
4.5 A: Clear somewhere between ruby red and burgundy color. Two fingers of ever so slightly pink frothy head. Pretty good retention and moderate lacing.
4.0 S: Wow, the raspberries! Tart raspberries totally dominate the nose and don't allow for any other aromas to be perceived other than a general vinousness. Of course, I have no problem with this since raspberries smell great.
5.0 T: Wow again. Totally wasn't expecting it to be so full bodied and flavorful. Most fruit beers are scant on the fruit and make what tastes like a watered down beer mixed with a watered down fruit juice. Not this one! Whether justified or not, I really like Lindemans Framboise and this is in several ways a bigger, bolder version of that. Raspberries are pretty much the sole flavor and give only a mild tartness. Loads of residual sweetness, which could contribute to a low level of perceived tartness.
5.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation is spritzy and dances on the tongue. Somewhat sticky, but super smooth.
5.0 D: I really like it. I have another bottle in the cellar that I'm tempted to open up, but I must resist. Gotta share. The people of Pittsburgh need to know about this one.

A- Dark amber in color, maybe better described as raisin-like or like red apple skin. The brew has a fizzy head that dissipates into lacy film. It has a cloudy appearance.
S- Dark fruit and tartness. Very cider-like. There's an earthy spice and undertone to it.
T- Tart raspberries, green apple, apple cider, earthy spice. Almost getting something chocolate-like as well as nuts.
M- Light and effervescent but still retaining creaminess and some nuttiness. Slightly sweet coupled with a tartness that is measured and tasteful and not close to sour.
This is simply an incredible fruit beer. I kept getting so much more than fruit on my palate and really found myself enjoying it more and more as it warmed.
