One of the many great brews I got from Hwwty4 in the Secret Santa 08 BIF. Thanks Bill, this is a beer I have long anticipated getting to try and by chance it has turned out to be my 400th review.
At first glance the body of this beer looks very red, almost exactly like a red wine. However, pink notes become noticeable when held up to the light. A pinkish head rises up a little bit but dies down even faster. No retention, head, or lacing sticks around on this one.
The smell is a little sweet, a little tart, but all raspberry. Smells a lot like fresh raspberries, and I can't think of what else I could ask for. A nice smell for sure.
A nice tartness leads off here, pairing puckering sourness with lots of natural tasting raspberry flavor. Next comes more raspberry flavors, but with lots of sweetness. Reminds me a little bit of a juice box actually. If HI-C made a beer, I think it would be this single aspect of Raspberry Tart. This is definitely all raspberry, which I definitely like, being a raspberry fan. The finish however, brings some oak notes into the flavor, which surprises me. The aftertaste is, unsurprisingly, tart raspberry. Tasty beer.
The mouthfeel of the body is light to medium at best. Despite the beer's appearance, it also is pretty well carbonated.
If you like raspberries, this beer is definitely drinkable. The tartness and sweetness come together to balance the beer out, making it rather drinkable. Glad to finally try this one, it was a pleasure.
