3.13/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A mixture of that pink raspberry color and an almost brown malt like base. Doesn't hold a head. Aroma was nice, mild raspberry impression.

Taste did impart sweetness, a little bit of wheat, rye or something that doesn't seem all barley with this one, or not enough. Seems like juice was just dumped in it at times.

3.55/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a Great Basin Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep red with a frothy pink head that settles to a thin layer and laces lightly.

S: Sweet raspberry juice, a little tart, and a faint kinda earthy note.

T: Raspberry juice, a little lactic tartness, maybe a hint of light malt.

M: Medium body, prickly carbonation.

O: This is better than a lot of the raspberry beers I've tried in the past. The flavor comes off as genuine and it isn't overly sweet. That said, there's not a whole lot else going on in there. For what it is I'll take it.

Pours a different color for something that bills itself as a raspberry beer. Its pink and all, but the head seems like something from a watered down black and tan thrown in with raspberries. Aroma, not too bad, this actually conveyed the smell of store bought raspberries. Not overly sweet.

Taste, well that was a little sweet, lacked some malt body, was there wheat in here? And in what proportion, not enough, this comes off a little too fruit juicy overall. Could have used some tartness to it as well, just overall, was a little too much like a fruit juice and not a fruit beer.

Batches seem to have ranged from 5.0 - 5.7% alcohol.
