look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with reddish undertones. What little head formed on the surface was white with almost no lacing and dissipated quickly.

Smell: Mild. Raspberry notes up front with a bit of wheat, pepper and citrus in the back.

Taste: Also mild. Could easily be mistaken for a raspberry hefe if not for the deep color. Fruity sweetness hits the palate first, then peppery spice. Finishes with a slight bitterness. The raspberry flavor lingers throughout.

Mouthfeel: Just what you'd expect it to be after seeing how it pours--light bodied and thin, almost watery.

Overall: Boring. This beer pours an attractive color and has a nice abv kick, but that's about all it has going for it. It would be a good choice for that Purple Haze or #9 drinker you know who needs to expand his or her repertoire.

Bleh. This is your standard fruit beer with a typical base beer that gets injected with a load of juice or flavoring. No real unique flavors or interesting tones. Typical. I definitely have written off fruit beers for all time, unless I know that they are highly rated and well received.
