Poured from a bottle into a Bell's tulip. The beer has low carbonation, yet a rough pour produces a nice fluffy white head. Retention is not bad given the acidity. The beer is gorgeous - crystal clear and deep red in color. The nose gives fresh raspberries, a dry, cracker-like aroma, and white wine notes.
The beer has a light body and a nice firm feel. The flavor up front is fruity and sweet, with a wheat-cracker-like undertone. The fruitiness quickly gives way to a balancing acidity as wine-like tannins kick in to tickle your tongue and pinch your cheeks. The beer is extremely refreshing and very easy to drink.
Overall, an extraordinarily well-balanced beer. It's tart, but not sour. Fruity, but not sweet. I wish this were available where I live. I would definitely keep one or two bottles on hand.

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.
