This one is a medium red with brown hues, shining with a bright flair in the light. An off-white foam is creamy and compact with pretty good lace.
My initial thought is that this smells like an apple juice or, more accurately, cider. Some darker malts do emerge with time. It tastes that way, too, mostly fruity with a bit of bread and some toffee-like sweetness. In the flavor, this gives way to an overall sweetness, some molasses and overripe red fruits moving toward a somewhat odd note in the finish.
I don't know what to make of the feel. At the same time it seems there are thick malts, only in the mouthfeel and not the flavor, it's also light and a bit too bubbly or spritzy.

This is a 10% beer that drinks like a lager. Be afraid, be very afraid. It's awesome.

Smells of sweet malt. Light but distinct smell/flavor of raspberries and caramel. A boozy bite on the tongue and in the throat. Very dry in the palate with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Not bad for the high alcohol content.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Medium brown/ruby in the light, clear appearance, very little head. 'Soda carbonation'. Light nose, bit of ssweetness, fruity esters present. Slightly sweet to taste, bit of smokiness coming through. Thin mouthfeel. Overly so. Bit of a cloying aftertaste. Could be richer, heavier (get it ?). Missing piece is the mouthfeel. I feel like my homebrewed Wee Heavy was stronger after the first try...
