Very strong raspberry smell and taste. Very crisp taste and one of a few beers equally good very cold as warmed to proper temperature. Gotta be in the right mood to drink it because it is very fruity, though.

Poured at 40°F from a 12oz bottle (bottled on 23Feb16) into a nonic pint glass. Consumed on 20Aug16.
SMELL: Colossal waves of sweet and tart raspberry entangle with mild aromas of honey and wheat along with subtle earthy hops and lemon zest
4.25 out of 5
TASTE: Near overpowering flavors of sweet and tart raspberry nuke the palate at first sip. The gargantuan fruitiness quickly finds balance as mild wheat flavors flow on to the palate. Subtle flavors of lemon zest offer an additional fruity complexity as they follow right after the wheat. Flavors of mild honey and subtle earthy hops finish off the theatrical as all previous flavors maintain.
4.25 out of 5.
NOTE: I was not prepared for the amount of raspberry in this beer. This was after half a year of sitting in a bottle. I cannot imagine this fresh. I feel anymore raspberry would be too much. The quantity I had was perfect. I greatly appreciated the supporting flavors. They blended very well with the fruity goodness.
