I had this in the middle of a tasting, but it stood out so much that I thought I would review it.
The beer pours a nice reddish-purple color, with a kind of thin off white, maybe pink colored head. It's just a little hazy, but nice looking. The smell is very nice. Fruity and deep, not only raspberries, but also some other ripe fruits, an assortment, but the raspberries really stand out. There's also a kind of powdery malt presence, very light, a good sweetness, maybe a little bit of bread. There's also a good balance of tartness to go along with the sweetness. Very interesting. The taste really comes through well with the raspberries. You just get a mouthful of berry, almost like they're fresh-picked, a good juicy sweetness, a wonderful tartness. There not sweet and overripe tasting, but not green. The fruitiness is not really the least bit artificial. And there's also a nice powdery pilsener malt presence, not biscuity or bready, but just nice. The mouthfeel is nice, especially for 4.0%. It's kind of medium, and the sweetness makes it a bit fuller, but then that's balanced and toned down by the tartness. Really nice, and not like cough syrup. The beer is very enjoyable, and at a low enough ABV that it won't hurt you too badly. Though, I'm sure you would have some trouble drinking a bunch of it because of the intense fruit presence. I would definitely buy it more if I could, and the price was not bad, at maybe $8-9 for a 750. Definitely recommended.

This beer is delicious. The fruit is impeccable. It was very refreshing as well. My only criticism is it's overly sweet after a few sips. If this beer had a bit more alcohol I feel it would be more balanced. I enjoyed it a bit better after mixing in a bit of a different ale to cut down the sweetness.
