I am drinking this exactly three months past its bottle date.
Big raspberry nose with a hint of light funk in the background. The glass is sitting on the table and I can still smell raspberries.
Brilliant ruby garnet, ½” pinkish foam cap quickly dissipates. Above average carbonation, slight oiliness, medium to medium light body.
Was afraid of getting a pop beer but it is surprisingly good. Big raspberry flavors are supported by a light tart touch over a hint of caramel and light bread.
A well balanced, refreshing summer beer.
