Had on tap at the pub on Tuesday--served into a pint glass.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, hazy, medium carbonation, gold in color

Smell: faint raspberry

Taste: sweet and tart raspberry light wheat

Mouthfeel: sweet, light bodied, moderate carbonation

Overall: Super sessionable light and fruity raspberry beer. One of the better fruit beers in the state..a pleasant surprise.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell was upfront raspberry with a soft doughy grain in the background.

The taste was a bit softer as far as the raspberry, but the fruit was there. There was a suprisingly good biscuity grain behind the fruit, which leads me to believe that this ale could stand alone as a blonde.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side with good carbonation.

Overall a tasty and not too overpowering fruit beer. Good drinkability in small doses.

Another solid offering from Barrington...

I was expecting worse, had a similar beer recently from Paper City. Pours medium golden amber colored, cloudy, a little bubbly head. Smells of fresh raspberries with also some nice yeasty wheats. Taste is solid raspberries and, again, the yeast and the wheat notes. Very enjoyable.

Nice light golden ale with pronounced raspberry flavor. Very drinkable and perfect for those long humid summer days in New England. Definitely one of the better fruit beers out there.
