2.53/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Lightly hazy, pale-hued, straw-colored body with a small-sized, white head.

Smell: Though some slight malt accents are present, it's essentially only the raspberry additive.

Taste: Incredibly light malt base and then it's off to the smooth, though light raspberry flavoring. The altogether mild carbonation allows this lackluster taste to just languish on the tongue. So, with the light malt profile and non-existent hops, all you have is this raspberry taste from start till merciful finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Low carbonation.

Drinkability: I'm very pleased Blackhorse's issues with diacetyl ended here, as I wasn't particularly looking forward to the idea of raspberry flavoring and diacetyl's buttery off-flavor. Though, the beer still didn't perform too well for me -- in that the predominate flavor present (raspberry flavoring, natch) was still rather mild and the carbonation was just missing, leaving the beer to come across as a flavored water, like something Dasani would put out on the market. Ah well, they can't all be a New Glarus Raspberry Tart.

1.53/5  rDev -35.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Aroma: A harsh metallic smell with a spray of fruit
Appearance: Dark red with a quickly fading whitish head
Flavor: Something is wrong here, very very wrong. Very little flavor going on here, and what there is isn’t pretty. The metallic flavor is reminiscent of licking a beer can, and the fruit just doesn’t cover it. Think the brewer needed to look at the kettle cleaning procedures.
Mouthfeel: Watery
Overall Impression: Very little redeeming qualities to be found. Too little fruit, too many off flavors. Back to the drawing board with this one.
