Picked up a 750mL bottle maybe six months ago from the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha, WI.
A: Pours a nice shade of cranberry red color with 3 fingers of an off-white with a VERY subtle tint of red colored head that settles down to a rim of foamy bubbles and not much lacing.
S: Smells like raspberry soda! A combination of fresh and tart/slightly sour raspberries. A very sweet scent. Not super complex but smells delightful, like someone took a handful of raspberries and crushed them in their hands and sniffed.
T: Very similar to the smell. Fresh and tart/sour raspberries that again are like carbonated juices from crushing up a bundle of raspberries in your hand.
M: Just a little less carbonation than what raspberry soda would be like to me. I think it's great. The carbonation is a little lower, but very smooth rolling bubbles and very little carbonation bite, which I'm glad because I wouldn't want that in this beer anyway.
D: Amazingly drinkable and possibly the most drinkable fruit beer I've had to date. It's sweet yet tart, but not overly so in either case, therefore the palate isn't fatigued and there is no alcohol flavor. This really tastes just like a perfect raspberry soda and not anything like what I would have imagined a beer could be back before my foray into craft beers.
