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.

Hard to review as a beer, but pretty tasty nonetheless! Pours ruddy, with no foam. Aroma is definitely raspberry. Very nice, I'll definitely suggest this to my next girlfriend. Taste is a nice balance of sweet and tart, true to the real berry. It's a bit more carbonated than I like and leaves a tart aftertaste. Kinda weird, kinda good.

Delicious beer. It's like raspberry iced tea but beer. Not too sweet, not to tart. Smooth finish. Overall a perfectly balanced beer!
