12 oz bottle- Pours lightly hazy strawberry red with a light pink head. Aroma is berries, lightly tart, fairly subdued. The taste is raspberry, fruity, mildly tart. Tastes like a fruit beer, easy drinking, but noting special here. The Lemon Ginger was much better.

A little blah in my opinion. If I'm going to drink a fruit beer, I'd like the fruit to be somewhat prominent. It was a little underwhelming to me.

Appearance- The beer pours a lightly hazed pink color with floaties in the brew. There is almost no head on pouring, just some crackle of fizz.
Smell- The aroma is a mix of sour raspberry and lime with a little bit of wheat and grass.
Taste - The taste starts out with a dry raspberry flavor mixed with some cracker and crisp malt. The lime is moderate upfront, but grows stronger and stronger as the taste advances, bringing on a more and more sour taste. Toward the end the raspberry lightens even more while the lime getting bigger. Some flavors of herb and a decent hit of grass come along at the end as well, leaving one with a pleasently dry and tart raspberry lime setzer like flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The mouthfeel of the beer is light and crisp, great for the dry fruit and sour tastes.
Overall- While not a big sour fan, this beer I found rather approachable and refreshing. I could see this being nice on a warm summer day.

Pours a cloudy ruddy color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, raspberry, caramel malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of a Berliner Weissbier. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, raspberry, and a hint of citrus hops. Overall, weak appearance and average aroma, body, and blend.

New Belgium Brewing "Tartastic Raspberry Lime"
12 FL. OZ. brown glass bottle, "ENJOY BY: 98024 20MAY18" and sampled on 13MAR18
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Oh boy, here we go again, another pink beer. It's very hazy but not cloudy, and the head has a hint of pink to it as well. The aroma is lightly sweet and tart, like the candy. Does it smell like raspberry? Yes, a little bit. How about lime? No, there's no lime. OK, on to the flavor, that's what it's really about anyway... it's pretty much as the aroma suggested it would be but perhaps a tad bit sweeter, and I think I am getting some lime. I'm not getting straight raspberry so that must be it. It's very lightly bitter, if at all, but the mild acidity is enough to balance it. Looking back, the head didn't hold very well but that's fairly common in sour beers, although this isn't quite sour, but more like lightly tart. The lacing is pretty fair considering that though. It's light bodied and delicately effervescent; and overall quite refreshing. It is a bit of a one-trick pony though. I guess that's alright if it fits the mood you're in.

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, pinkish red color with a small tan head of foam. Strong raspberry and lime aroma. tasted like a fruity soda. There wasn't much beer-like qualities.
