There isn't a label on the bottom of this can, unlike the first two in the four-pack.

Appearance: The beer is amber with a fizzy white and short initial head. Medium clarity.

Aroma: The beer smells a bit like strawberries.

Taste: There is a very faint berry-like flavor and a wash of cream flavor. It doesn't have a ton of acidic flavor but what it does possess seems to be blackberry. Mostly the flavor of the beer is washed out by this sweet cream flavor like a song overly reflected in a mall. It makes you wonder what the flavor or song is, but that's about as far as the interest goes. At times it tastes a bit like a jawbreaker.

Mouthfeel: It is light and smooth, albeit a tad sticky.

Overall: It is drinkable and even enjoyable but it doesn't deliver. The name says "RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE" but it tastes more like cream of wheat with blackberries. Something just doesn't sit right with this beer. There is an interesting flavor to this beer which makes me want to drink it again. It tasted nothing like a "raspberry cheesecake" but if you enjoy berries and a bit of a mistaken cheesy tartness, the beer can be quite enjoyable. If this beer honestly reminds me of anything it is musical chairs where somebody baked a halfway decent blackberry pie. Yes it is worth drinking again and yes it is worth recommending. It isn't for everyone, but for berry lovers this is a surefire hit.
