This is one brew that seems to get a lot of negative talk but I really enjoy it. Nice ruby red color and excellent flavor. Best enjoyed in the summer but its in my fridge year round. Glad to see Founders has made this a year round beer now, will make my life easier. LOL

I could have like twenty of these. A bit sweet and heavy on the mouthfeel, but damn. I am a huge fan of Alaskan Brewing's raspberry wheat, but I think I've found my new favorite.

Bright red, slightly hazy, but not quite as vibrant and popping as the ruby red raspberry jam that Lindeman's Framboise is. Thin white head.

Smell is crisp, bright raspberries, a little bread, or pancake even.

Taste is softer and lighter on the raspberry, with some cracker--overall, not quite the apertif Framboise is, and not quite the full on onslaught of raspberry goodness. It becomes a little medicinal, like cherry cough syrup, as it warms, both in taste and aroma.

Feel is a little thin and sticky or filmy at times.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

look: a slightly burnt red color, slightly pinker than it is red. almost no head.

smell: pretty authentic raspberry smell, quite sweet, slightly tart.

taste: pretty much in line with the smell. Authentic raspberry taste, but a little too sweet.

feel: light bodied, tart, nice carbonation.

Good beer, only complaint is that its overly sweet.
