This was a little different than the description - the sampler I had was very sweet, giving no tartness at all. Color was a very nice raspberry, and the taste showed a lot of that too, though I'm not sure why it finished so sugary. Not too many places make fruit beers, so they get points for trying something different, but I'm sure a lot of people will think this tastes more like cough syrup than beer.

Pours hazy, reddish-brown with minimal head. Taste is a raspberry/blackberry combination with toasted malt and light blueberry. Light and sweet..above average fruity beer. Tastes natural as opposed to artificial. If I wanted a fruit beer, I would not hesitate to get this one.
