12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours with a reddish-amber body that's clear and topped with a short white head that quickly reduces to a thin ring. Nice fruity aroma that suggest a tart flavor is about as expected. The flavor follows, with raspberry and lime elements at about equal strength.
Near medium body with a semi-dry finish.

As another bottle prepares to bite the dust, it gives me an opportunity to reflect on the current prevalence of CANned beers. I was just at a Total Wine & More in a suburb of Boston & not only did I barely look at the bottled beers, but the plethora of CANs was simply astounding.

From the Bottle: "Brewed with raspberry and lime purées for an irresistibly playful sweet-tart sip that'll put a smile on your face every time."

Having Pop!ped the cap, I felt that a C-line pour was in order. This resulted in the brief formation of just over a finger of fizzy, foamy, pinkish head with low retention that quickly faded to wisps. Color was an oh-so-slightly-hazy Blush/Pink (SRM = N/A) which can be attributed to the addition of raspberries. Nose was redolent with raspberries and light with lime, but since I love the smell of raspberries, it was okay by me. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and watery. The taste was lightly tart & while it did not make me smile EVERY time that I took a sip, it was still pretty tasty & amusing. Finish was light, spritzy, lightly tart & semi-dry. It was the kind of thing that really begs for a hot, humid Summer's day. It was very thirst-quenching & I wonder if it might not do better is simply thought of as a Fruit Beer.

Tart friut with a beer aftertaste, a gateway beer to a sour. Good Ballance of all tastes.

Taste rating in words: It's that bite of food where you know you've hit a balance with the ingredients.

If you like sour, bland tasting water, then this beer is for you! Other than the color, this "beer" is a strike out.

Foam is a happy pastel pink, but dissipates quickly. Ale itself is a vibrant rose.
Very light and fruity, but definitely not soda pop. Tart, tangy ale with no sweet.
I am a thick stout lover, so it's hard for me to find a lighter summer beer that doesn't come off watery. This came off bright and bubbly, and flavorful.

It's beautiful. Pinkish red. Almost a rose. Lots of like....very little raspberry. Tart but not sour. It ok, not great. Drink really cold. After taste is a bit weird

5.5oz serving, part of a flight at good ta go chambersburg on Saturday.

Attractive pinkish red body, but no head at all, hence no lacing.

Faint fruity aroma

The raspberry comes through first, then the lime. decent flavors on their own, but the combination along with the non too pleasant aftertaste doesn't quite work here.

Mouth around medium, finish tart and fruity, with an off aftertaste.

Overall, not something that works for me. I like both fruit flavors, but not together it seems.

It lives up to the name ''tartastic''. The raspberries come through first then the lime is more of an aftertaste and they come through a little more than the raspberry flavor does.

Tartastic Raspberry Lime pours a pinkish color, with a small, but long lasting, and barley lacing head. Sweet, sugary and fruity aroma. Flavor is lightly, slightly tart, noticeable hints of raspberry and even less noticeable lime flavors. Light, and just a little flat. Overall, its a nice fruity beer, light, good for a hot day.

Tartastic Raspberry Lime brewed by New Belgium Brewing, with an ABV of 4.20% This Berliner Weissbier pours out a nice pinky crystal color, with a small pinkish white head. The smell is rich with sweetness, of lime and raspberry. You also pick up on mirror grains and malts. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste,it is tart by smooth with lime and raspberry. You also pick up a few crips grains and malts in the taste as well The body of this brew is light, not more nothing less. Not much to write home about, but it is however refreshing. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a nice balance to it. I like how easy drinking this is. The mouth feel is Bold, Tart, Lime, Raspberry, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Tartastic Raspberry Lime a Solid 4 out a 5. I would look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. New Belgium Brewing, did a real nice job with this fruit brew.
