A- Pours murky and bright pink/red. A small head is there and gone with minimal lacing.

S- First, sweet raspberry fruit hits, quickly followed by a touch of sour. There is a bit of medicinal flavor there with the raspberries resembling couch syrup a bit.

T- Just a touch of the sweet raspberries hit the tongue first before the fruit turns tart and balances out. After the raspberries subside, the base beer's tartness is readily apparent. It is not too sour, but definitely the predominant flavor component. At the end of the drink, the raspberries return a bit to bring balance to the tartness.

M- very highly carbonated and crushable, just like the name insinuates.

Overall, this is a pretty good starter sour that still displays its fruit very well. The level of sour is satisfying, but gets a little strong in the middle of the drink. The fruit is a nice addition that definitely balances the tartness of the beer. This is a great beer for a hot summer day.

T - The tartness hits you, then it gets sweet with lots of raspberry.

D - Light body with good carbonation.

O - Sweet and tart. Like it should be. Solid.

Pours a very pretty ruby/garnet color with a crackling two fingers of a pink head that quickly goes away.

Smell is like a rasberry hard candy. Not a lot of sweet but maybe more towards the tart on the nose.

Taste is a very tart raspberry crush. Taste is almost like picking up a fresh tart berry from a bush and eating it. Taste runs almost into a wine like category.

Mouth is puckering and tart with a very dry finish that does leave some bitter berry background in the mouth.

If you like raspberries this may tickle your fantasy. Otherwise the taste may be a bit to berry wine like. I really like it and find it so easy drinking it really is great! Note to self the berry tart does linger a bit like jam on the throat as you finish this sucker. Good stuff indeed!
