Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a UFO hefeweizen glass. Bottle says enjoy by 12/15/13...bought it mid-march 14. Whatever, here we go...
A: Cloudy raspberry hued amber color. A little head from the pour, quickly receded to a fizzy ring at glass edge, no lace.
S: Raspberries, duh! Cannot detect the typical aromas of hefeweizen...but the raspberries, wow, it just smells awesome. Also some hints of citrus, but not distinct.
T: Raspberries dominate the flavors, slightly sour too. Toward the end the typical here characters come in, but not distinctly. Just a nice malty complement to the finish. I was hoping to see more of the typical clove and spice phenols in the flavor, but the beer is so refreshing in the taste, that they really aren't missed.
M: Medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation, with a sharpish bite. There is an acidic character on the palate as well.
O: This is a great raspberry beer. The sour character makes this really refreshing, and enjoyable. This might be an awesome complement to a late breakfast or even brunch, or for a lazy Saturday afternoon session. Recommended!
