Bottled on 4/5/14. Poured into a chalice.

For a fruit beer I like this one but not in multiples. A great way to break up the session. If you don’t like raspberries stay away. With the sweetness and carbonation this beer has certain soda characteristics. 4

A – Pours a cloudy pinkish red with a light pink one-finger head. 4.25

S – Raspberries! But also malty. Zero hops detectable. 4

T – Raspberries, sweet but not cloying with a raspberry tartness apparent in the middle and finish. 4

MF – Good carbonation leading to a bite on the palate. Medium-light body. Sweet finish. 4.25
