Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. Beer pours with a medium sized head that quickly dissipates to form a ring around the glass. The beer has a clear reddish pink appearance with visible carbonation. Aromas include a sharp raspberry taste that fills the nose. Really rich. Taste follows the nose very well with a very sweet and tart raspberry flavor. Really good carbonation and medium body makes this beer slightly creamy with a crisp carbonation. Overall, I was really blown away by how rich the raspberry flavors were, both in aroma and taste. A really excellent fruit beer.
