Pretty tasty stuff, even though I wouldn’t want it every day.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Pleasant brownish red color with nice pink head and good lacing. Wonderful raspberry smell and taste. Very good fruit beer when in the mood for such.

Looks like cherry soda, candy red, thin film of bubbles on top
Raspberries
Raspberries, booze, something that reminds me of lemon-scented cleaning product
Medium-light body, coats the tongue. Dry
It's a novelty for sure but the taste isn't as bad as that of most fruit beers

Slight flavors of everything, tartness, beer, sweet, and tang. Would be a good entry fruit beer.

Taste rating in words: it's skinkling on a sunny day.

12oz can poured into 14oz tulip. Poured a clean, clear light red color, with just a thin cap of white head that had low retention and light lace.

The aroma leads with berry, but there's a nicely solid grain base in the background. Similar on the tongue,with berry leading the front and the malt owning the back.

The body was a bit fuller than I would have liked, a bit lighter would have improved drinkability. Overall, a pretty nice brew.Worth your time if you see it.

Pours a clear reddish color with a half inch light pink head that dissipated fairly quickly and leaves numerous spots of lacing. Smells of raspberries and a hint of malt in the background. Tastes like raspberry juice, on the sweet side, very little tartness with some malt and wheat. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly dry mouth feel.
