The two new wild beers are out, I thought I swore off Wild Blue, but here goes the raspberry version with a cartoon Basset Hound named Rascal. Premium lager brewed with spices and with natural flavors and color from juice added. Aroma has tart raspberries, candy like sweet cane sugar, a bit of alcohol underneath the fruit. Basically a higher hand kill yourself loko alcoholic pop. Flavor is super sweet but backs off enough with carbonation and earthy raspberry seeds to let it not be straight sugar, a touch of alcohol makes it through onto the palate. Mouthfeel is dry with some tart/sweet/earthy edges to it, not as cloying as I recall the Wild Blue being, I'm actually taking small sips of this one and it is halfway gone. Alcohol does overburden the palate but I can detect it's presence. Overall another big fruit beer that will be sold for 8.99 a six pack of 8% fruit lager, is this good for craft beer when somebody starts playing beer pong with this or wakes up with a killer hangover, or worse yet gets alcohol poisoning because it tasted like soda pop and they didn't realize it was 8% abv.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - dark, red with a fizzy layer of pink head that fades quickly

S - sweet, tart raspberries

T - tart raspberries, sweet, faint bitterness in the finish

M - crisp, medium bodied

A bit sweet and very forward with the raspberries. This tastes more like juice than beer. Fruit beer lovers will probably enjoy this, but for me it was a bit too sweet and overpowering.
