Good looking deep reddish purple brew; thin cream head.

Tons of tart raspberry on the nose.

Sweet and tart on the palate. Lots of raspberry, sugar, and a touch of syrup. No funk.

This is tasty, of course, but I'll pass in the future. It is too sweet and one-dimensional.

Poured into a chalice from a bottle. A deep hazy purple red color with a thin head and curtain lacing. Raspberry smell and taste. Taste is sweet with a bit of funk and sour pucker . A good beer for dessert!

L: Pours brilliant pink to cherry amber crowned by a quickly receding 1” pink tinted white foam collar.
S: I can smell the raspberries from about 3’ away.
T: Big raspberry flavors are balanced by citrus, lemony tartness and a light funk.
F: Juicy and light but very creamy and very soft on the palate
O: This is a yeast forward beer dominated by raspberries and yeast flavors without a lot of malt coming through. The balancing tartness keeps it from becoming a high school date beer.
