This isn't your standard beer, it is a very serious and delicious fruit beer.

Appearance: Pours a nice ruby red color, with short pink head, not much lacing

Smell: Tart raspberries all the way, some malt in there

Taste: Again, tart raspberries up front and in your face, a bit sweet as well. A healthy dose of malt in there as well

Mouthfeel: Light body, good refreshing carbonation

Overall: An excellent summer beer. Wish it was a little cheaper, but I'm sure it is expensive to brew so I'm just glad it is made at all. Considering buying a case.
