Appearance is a light pink color with a one finger fizzy head.
Aroma is grain, raspberries, malt.
Taste is a strange mix of raspberry, sugar candy and malt.
Lots of clashing flavors but in the end the raspberry candy flavor wins.
Too sweet for me. Compared to other better fruit beers it lacks well rounded flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium and crisp.
Glad I tried it but I couldn't drink more than a few sips.

A 12oz bottle dated 5.23.14

A - Ruby red, 1 finger of head and nice sticky lace left on the glass

S - Raspberries and lots of them! No booze, just raspberries...thats all!

T - Wow...its a spiked raspberry juice! So good! Apples and raspberries, alcohol is well hidden. An awesome brew.

M - Medium carbonation and light bodied.

O - A great beer. Just wish it was not so expensive, or this one would be a regular.

Poured from a bottle into 12 oz. tulip. Nothing resembling a head here, slightest trace of lacing, doesn't last too long. Raspberries come off strong immediately in the aroma and hide anything else that might be there. Taste is the same thing for me, the taste is delicious, but I really feel like I'm drinking raspberry juice. I haven't had a lot in this style so I'm not sure exactly what to look for in terms of depth and complexity. Incredibly refreshing however!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a chalice.

Pours a rose color with a white foamy head that dissipates quickly.
Smells of...well...raspberries and tastes of sweet berries up front with a sour, tartness on the finish. No bitterness detected, but a great malt profile within. Low abv, but the acidity alone will kill your palate. Drink this one last.

Cheers!
