OK, Wine cooler with a head? That was my first thought as I tend to be alittle careful of beers of this style. It poured a light red berry color with a rather nice pink or mauve colored head. (If my wife saw this she would want to paint our room this color for sure.) The carbonation was average and the head did stick around to lace well with web like rings. That was cool and little fiz so appearance up .5.
The aroma was sweet and berry. The taste was kinda bitter-sweet. The honey and malts provide the sweet while the berries tart the whole thing down. I thought more like a rasberry than a black.
The mouth is left pretty tart. Not a beer to go with food. Brewed or offered as a seasonal, once a year is about good enough.
Best off the fresh pour while the carbonation is still active. If it sits or warms, can't do it. Drink cold while your hot. It goes down fast with a nice little kick to it.

This beer is my sister-in-laws beer of discovery, she just thinks its great, we shall see. It pours a pinkish amber color with a thin white head on top, vewry visible signs of carbonation in the glass. The scent is totally dominated with the berry aroma, rasberry seems to be the strongest. The taste starts with the tartness of berries, and almost becoming overbearing, then a light wheat flavor blends in right at the end. Very thin and watery, the berries do leave the palate dry. This beer may not be what I like in a beer and I am not giving high score, but if it brings a non-beer drinking person, like my sister-in-law, to the world of beer, then I am all for it. Plus, several weeks later, I got her to try a framboise, and she was floored.
