750ml bottle split four ways and poured into Teku Glass. Thanks Josh (thebigredone) for this one!
A- Pours a dark slightly translucent reddish with a slight purplish hue to it, a thin head forms that fairly quickly recedes leaving some spotty lacing, fairly minimal but consistent carbonation.
S- Very sweet raspberry almost like a syrupy jam-like sweetness. Fairly aromatic, but a little bit too much on the sweet side.
T- Lightly tart raspberry jam with a light malt backbone, fairly sweet (but not as sweet as the other NG fruit beers I've had) and a little bit one-dimensional. Tasty and a decent level of tartness that plays well with the sweet raspberry jam, just a little bit too sweet in my opinion though.
M- Fairly light but a tiny bit syrupy, nice carbonation, easy drinking.
O- This was my favorite of the NG fruit beers besides the apple. I thought it was good, but a little bit too much on the sweet side. I do think having this in my cellar for a few months did help tone the sweetness down a little bit however it was still a little bit too much for my liking. To my liking I could picture this being a little bit better with a year on it (some people might not agree though). Overall I thought it was decent but not something I would seek out again, I can see how a lot of people really like this beer though.
