From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Space Pilgrin Episode 3. Raspberries profile fairly natural, specially in nose, but in long run it becomes a bit tiresome, with its acidity bothering in throat a bit

Raspberry and cherry back flavors; lovely, light odor, not too bitter. The deep red color didn’t throw me off. I hoped for something richer but got the basics of fruit beer.

Love this beer. The fruity taste is the perfect level. If you can find it on nitro definitely go for it.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear ruby red color with a small white head. The arona is raspberry. The taste matches the nose.

Not usually a fruity beer guy. Had this at disneyworld and then bought 4 pack at home. Refreshing and very tasty. Could actually drink multiple which is not usual for me with fruit beers. Thought this was excellent and nice change of pace
