A: Pours a berry red as expected with small head. The head is relatively thin and pink. Spotted lacing present on the glass.

S: Strong raspberry and really pleasant.

T: Berries - raspberry definitely present, but possibly others. Sweet. Really sweet - like eating the icing on cake.

M: Light because of the fruit flavor, yet heavy because of the over the top sweetness.

O: Really good for what it is but not your average drinking beer - definitely not sessionable due to its sweetness.

I have never liked beer, but on a whim I picked up a bottle of this at Trader Joe's, and it made me start to understand why so many people enjoy the stuff in general.

It poured a beautiful rosy pink, left a nice white foam that dissipated fairly quickly, but most importantly, it smacked me in the face both aroma and taste-wise with the freshest raspberries I've ever tasted. The carbonation was pretty mild, and there was a nice light sourness that I've since learned is probably from the Brettanomyces and other wonderful critters that help make a proper lambic.

This is the beverage that inspired me to start learning about and tasting other beer styles, and so far, it's still my favorite.
