4.63/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
An impressive looking champagne magnum that is waxed on the top.
Appearance: Murky red colour, looks like puréed raspberries. Light fizzy head give a champagne crackle.
Smell: Big aroma of freshly macerated raspberries. Very sweet yet enough fruity tartness as well.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Bam! Raspberries! Every corner your taste buds turn more raspberries. The tartness is right in balance with the sweetness of the fruit. Fizzy crisp mouth feel, sweet on the palate with some graininess within. A very faint alcohol also leads down the beer trail.
Notes: A perfect tasting fruit beer, real fruit! This is my top pick for an early afternoon brunch tipple.
Serving type: bottle

A: A fine one finger light tan head with pink tones which slowly dissipates to a film and ring which leaves some lacing. The beer is a medium to dark amber with ruby highlights. Looks very good.
S: Tart and sweet raspberry. Definitely smells like fresh fruit and not like jam or a preserve. There is some really mild wheat malt behind the raspberries. Outside of the robust raspberry, it is quite mild, but strong enough to support the sweetness of the raspberry.
T: Tart raspberry with some sweetness. Fantastic. Hops and malt nicely compliment the raspberry, which is at the forefront. Easy drinking and delicious.
MF: Medium, coating, and suburb.
O: The hops and malt work beautifully in the background to help create one of the best fruit beers I've had due to the balance. Its a real treat. I really wished that they would include a bottled on date on the 750ml bottles.
