Not normally into "gimmicky" beers but had to try this and am glad I did.On tap at Sticks and Stones.Poured a ruby tinted ruddy brown with a minimal head.Big raspberry notes in the nose with underlying peanut,very much like pb&j.Flavors like the aromas are packed with jammy raspberry flavors with the underlying but somewhat assertive roasted peanuts.Damn this beer is cool,it's light and drinkable and the flavors didn't get old to me.

Really great seasonal brown ale featured by Catawba Valley Brewing! The aroma of both peanut butter and raspberries are predominately present on the nose and those same tastes are gently left ever so slightly on the palate thereafter.

Excellent balance between raspberry and peanut butter. You also get some crustiness. It literally tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but nothing too overpowering.

A: Pours a murky reddish-brown with a finger of off-white head that has a slightly red tint to it and fades into a thin layer with little lacing.

S: What can I say other than it smells exactly like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Wheat bread aromas, peanuts, and raspberry jam. It's unusual, but quite nice.

T: Caramel and chocolate malts here with a little wheat flavor followed by some tart raspberry notes. The finish is a little watery, but leaves an aftertaste of peanuts.

M: Medium body with mid-low carbonation, this beer could use a bit more carbonation or a creamier body because it's a little watery.

O: A pretty unique but enjoyable beer, overall. It definitely smells a lot more like a PB&J than it tastes, but it's still solid.
