look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a pink hued ruby red with a nice mauve cap; decent retention and a smattering of lace

Smell: Raspberry popsicle tones; smells very sweet

Taste: Sweet raspberry juice which verges into the tart territory, through the middle; clean, not funky, with a lot of fruit in the finish; some woody tartness lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Nothing complex here; a good entry sour; fun to drink for a while

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip. Canned 6/8/17.

Appearance: moderately cloudy salmon-pink body with a finger of pillowy pink foam atop. It definitely looks the part for a raspberry beer.

Smell: nice raspberry character with a little bit of acidity underneath. A bit one-dimensional, but nice.

Taste: bright and acidic, but with enough sweetness and fruit flavor to be balanced. It's not candylike, as there is a little bit of funk, and I think that works well here. I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: I like this beer, although it's a bit heavy in ABV to be a real Berliner weissbier. Still, it's definitely a crushable quaff.

from the brewery: "Acidulated white wheat, raspberries and an inoculation of lactobacillus in the fermenter give this American ale its tart, fruity taste. Low hop levels let the special sour flavors dominate, and rice syrup helps yield a particularly light finish and body. This is a real summer refresher."

Had this on tap tonight at Bar Gernika in downtown Boise... I was told this was the only keg to make it to Idaho... Thanks Jeff!!

Poured into a nice tulip... The brew is glowing cloudy reddish pink... the head was fluffy with a pretty pink tinge... nice lacing.

The nose is surprisingly subtle.. huge raspberry essence, but the lack of sweetness keeps things from ever verging on raspberry soda.

Flavor is like a raspberry sock to the salivary glands... very tart with just a bit of lactic acidity... tons of fresh fruit with just enough residual sweetness to really deliver the fruit... nicely dry finish makes me want another glass.

light body with a spritzy carbonation.

I had a glass and a half.... I probably could have had two, but that would be my limit... too much of a good thing.

thanks to TATURBO for bringing this beer back from the West Coast!

Poured into tulip.

Appearance: light red with a slight orange hue. 2 fingers of white head that quickly drops to no head.

Smell: Raspberry jolly ranchers if there ever was such a flavor.

Taste: Same as the nose. Raspberry Jolly Ranchers! Really simple, not very complex but I dont care because it is seriously delicous! Moderate tartness and a touch of sweetness to balance. Lots of fresh raspberry notes.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really effortless and drinkable beer. A little better than Semi-dry finish. Crisp carbonation. bright flavors. WOW.

Overall: Plain and simple...this is seriously under the radar sour beer we have from a brewery I have never heard of. What a treat! Thanks again chris!

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear ruby red color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet raspberries. The taste however is sour raspberries. An average Berliner Weiss.

12oz can served in a snifter. 08 June 2017 is on the bottom of the can.

Pours bright pinkish-read with a small head and medium to low carbonation. Fairly hazy. Smell is raspberries.

Taste is raspberries and tart. I like it, but it's more like a juice than a beer. Maybe more like a dry cider.

mouthfeel is dry and nice. Overall, it's enjoyable.

Raspberry crush pours a reddish color with almost no head. Sweet raspberry aromas. Taste has a nice natural, very sweet, raspberry flavor, with a hint of tart near the end. Good body and feel. Overall, on the sweeter side, but solid.
