I bought a bottle of this beer for my husband, who's a sucker for anything berry flavored. Oddly, he didn't care for it. I think the smell of the beer got to him, as it does have a bit of a yeasty funk to it. I hate wasting craft beer, so I sucked it up and drank this fruit beer, which I'm not too usually fond of. As for fruity beers, this one wasn't too bad i.e. it didn't taste like straight up berry candy. It is fruity and you taste the raspberry, but the flavor is more balanced than I anticipated. There's a nice yeasty and sour taste to the beer as well.
