1.7/5 rDev -61%
Absolutely the most disgusting looking beer I have ever poured into a glass. A strange combination that looks like some sort of off purple mudd. A very light amount of carbonation to let you know that it is beer, but just barely.
Smells exactly like a bowl of raspberry Ice Cream, probably the highest quality of this beer.
Taste is a very sour raspberry flavor, no real beer flavors in a normal sense to speak of, no hop prescence no malts detectable at all.
Mouthfeel is suprisingly thin for a beer that looks so thick.
Drinkability is terrible, taste more like a bad can of sour raspberry soda than beer. I don't think I would even call it beer. Couldn't even finish it.

A- Pours a reddish purple color with a nice reddish colored head. Head had fairly good retention and leaves pretty much no lacing.
S- Shockingly enough it smells of raspberries.
T- This tasted more like a wine cooler to me than a beer. Raspberries all over the place and pretty much nothing else.
M- Light in body and light to medium in carbonation.
D- Wow I will pass on this one.

A: Pours brownish red, minimal fast-fading head, lots of active bubbles in the liquid.
S: Strong raspberry aroma, jam-like and somewhat artificial. Pretty one-note, but I suppose that what they were aiming for.
T: Juice. Sparkling juice. Did the yeast attenuate this at all? Tastes like sweet wine or cider. No beer-like aspects to my tongue. Finishes with a distinct zing.
M: High carbonation. Lots of residual sweetness. Sticky finish.
O: As this warms up, it just gets more oppressively sweet to the point that my stomach is starting to get a bit upset. Perhaps if you frequently drink juice and soda and want a beer that's as sweet as them, this is an appealing beverage, but it's not at all for me.

750ml bottle. Thanks Adam! Pours a slightly hazy, dark red-brown with a fluffy, pinkish head that dies after a bit. Pungent aroma of raspberries; very, very sweet. Sour notes become more noticeable as it warms. Taste is a rush of sugar and fortified raspberry. Cloying, actually. Acidity comes through to balance it a bit, but still finishes very sweetly. Raspberry Tart is a pretty fitting name for this one. The feel is light-medium, but awfully syrupy. As much as I wanted to like this one, it's just too sweet...couldn't actually finish it.

Appearance was a cool looking dark blood red/raspberry with thin rim of pink bubbles. Sweet raspbeery jam aroma with an every so slight tartness. Hey, I might like this beer after all. Taste: all I tasted was sweet raspberry puree. No hints of malt or hops or anything else that makes a beer a beer. "Cloying" doesn't even describe the sticky syrupy mess that stuck to my throat. Maybe a little carbonation wouldv'e helped it dance across tha palate a little better, instead it just coated the mouth with sweetness and nothing else. Mind you- there were no objectionable or "off" flavors, just one-dimensional sweet raspberry ones. It's too bad that this bottle was wasted on me because it seems a lot of people enjoy this "beer" but I found it undrinkable and dumped most of the bottle. The wife even laughed at it.
