22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Aromas of sweet/lightly tart raspberry, whipped cream, vanilla, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of raspberry/cream, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of sweet/lightly tart raspberry, whipped cream, vanilla, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raspberry, whipped cream, vanilla, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of raspberry/cream, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast ester notes; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish, and also very clean with low levels of yeast ester fruitiness. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an excellent fruity cream ale style. All around great balance and robustness of raspberry/cream, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast ester flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured form bottle to pils glass. Golden pink with effervescent carbonation, small to no head. No lacing, sides of the glass are bald and smooth. Sweet and tart raspberry aromas waft from the brew, and the taste follows with a tart raspberry snap on the tongue followed by a smooth, cool ride down the gullet. Fruit and cream ale seems to go together well enough, this is a fine example. Hideout is now three for three in solid offerings of the ones I've had.
