2.15/5  rDev -37.1%

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - Nice two finger head of slightly off-white foam. The beer is a cloudy coral pink. Decent head retention with some lacing.

S - Fairly sweet. Lots of raspberry with a light sourness. Some wheat and light malt, pretty nice. Very fruity, but still smells like beer.

T - Starts off pretty sour, and then finishes flat and grainy. Not much in between initially. Cloying, syrupy sweetness that feels artificial and unenjoyable. Something really vegetal, like tomatoes. While it's not tot the worst tasting beer I've had, this is just not nice.

M - Fair carbonation, with a body on the thinner side. Slight sour feeling.

D - Pretty disappointing overall. This just tastes gross.

3.43/5  rDev +0.3%

A - hazy pinkish golden with a tall soapy light pink head that retained well in a pilsner glass
S - dominated by adjunct and grain with some leafiness and a very faint hint of the feature ingredient
T - tart raspberry with a bready grain malt body, some corn, leafy hops
M - medium to lighter body with refreshing carbonation, finishes with light tartness
O - an easy summertime sipper for sure that is understated in terms of the raspberry, this 6er won't last the evening
