I am not a fan beer in general but if I had to pick one this one would win hands down every time. It is sweet and delicious. It has a brilliant red color with a vibrant sweet aroma of raspberry. When tasting this it is soft, sweet and a hint of tartness. The sweetness of this beer is not overwhelming in any sense.

I loved this beer, probably my most favorite. Very summery and fruity with that beer taste still involved

Done in a horizontal tasting with Thirsty Dog Raspberry Ale and Great Divide Wild Raspberry(from notes).

Eye: Not quite clear, cloudy and the color of dark grapefruit juice. The head is beautiful, creamy with the perfect size and great retention, color of it is pinkwith white added to lighted it a shade or two. Beautiful sandstone type of lacing-layers. Great looking all around.

Nose: Smells of real raspberries, just like you've opened a bag of them and pureed them. Simple and Pure. Great aroma, just pure raspberries.

Tongue: Tartness and the flavor of real raspberries, nothing processed about this beer. Tastes like all natural raspberries. This is by far the best fruit beer I've had to date. Hops are present just enough to balance it out, just slightly noticeable in the taste. This is an excellent fruit beer, one of the best all around...a bit of tartness and some bitterness perfectly balance out the sweetness.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: My first thought when this one hit my palate was-Smooth, velvet-like. It has a ferfect amount of carbonation to compliment the tartness in here. NIce medium body, with a semi-dry finish. First slightly wet finish that leads to to a dried finish then back again. Certain parts of my mouth call this dry whilst others...well not so much so. this is one that I'll buy again, pending I can find it next season.
