Described as a raspberry tripped, it came in a tulip from draught at iTap CWE. Amber, rapidly fading white head, sweet raspberry aroma. Very effervescent/sparkling, full berry taste. Alcohol is well hidden an interesting take on the style. The name describes it perfectly.

More sweet than tart with low bitterness.
Lively, high carbonation.
Sparkling indeed.

Smells like kool-aid. Fairly berry-esque, mixing raspberry and maybe some blueberry sweetness.

Flavor is berry dominant, with a lightly medicinal note mid palate, and a bready, lightly dry finish.
