A - 2 finger, frothy pink head in a La Chouffe tulip. Body is a (gasp) raspberry purpley/red. No lacing, and the head quickly dissapates.
S - From the second I cracked this, the aroma has wafted around the room. It smells like (gasp) raspberries. It's an absolutely mouth-watering smell. It's 99% raspberries and a touch of beer/alcohol.
T - It could honestly be mistaken for (gasp) raspberry juice. It's wonderful, if not SLIGHTLY one dimensional. For what it is, and that's a fruit beer, it's great. It's mostly sweet with a hint, and I mean a small hint, of sour. If someone gave this to me and told me it was a beer, let alone alcoholic, I don't think I'd believe them.
M - A little soft on the palate, and slightly undercarbonated, but the body is there.
D - I love raspberries, and I love beer, so this is a pretty perfect blend of the two. I could see this getting cloying to those that aren't in the mood, or into fruit beers, but for me it's just fine.
Notes: I didn't really know what to expect with this one, but I'm definitely enjoying every ounce of it. Damn you Wisconsinites for your access to New Glarus. DAMN YOU!!
Mad thanks to Richard for this wicked extra.

Pours a cloudy, red/brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-pink color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong and fresh raspberries, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight tartness and slight dryness. Tastes of fresh raspberries, hint of hops, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, the aroma and body of the raspberries is amazing. The freshness is akin the Samuel Smith's Raspberry, but the blend is even better. It tastes of more than pure raspberry juice; tart, slightly hoppy, and irresistible.
