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

L: Pours a dark red pink with a medium frothy head with no lacing on the glass.

S: Raspberry is very up front in this beer, there is a bit of tartness from the beer, other than the raspberry, I don't a lot else.

T: Slightly tart raspberry with a touch of sweetness, no bitterness, this beer is almost all raspberry I don't get much else.

F: light body and easy drinking

O: This is a very raspberry forward beer, i wish the raspberry was toned down abit and we get a little more beer characteristics.

12 oz can, canned on 10/22/19. Pours hazy pink red with some chunks and a fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is sweet and tart raspberry, a bit subdued.

The flavor is sweet raspberry with a little tartness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low spritzy carbonation.

Overall, an OK fruit beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Presentation: Presentation: 12 oz. can with the canning date printed on the bottom. Served in a lambic glass.

Appearance: The one finger head goes away almost immediately and leaves behind some lacing in pacthes. It's a murky, opaque brick color.

Smell: It's a faint aroma of fresh raspberries with a touch of musty grains in the background.

Taste: It's mostly just a watery, malty sweetness with a slight hint of fruity raspberry as it goes down and that's it.

Mouthfeel: It's light, crisp, and refreshing with medium-high carbonation.

Overall: It looks good and the scent is pleasant enough to but the taste just isn't that great. The raspberry is subdued and barely present at all.

Fun, a good breakfast beer, light and fruity. A rosy coral color with no head nor bubbles, nor lacing. Smells of raspberries, tastes of generic fruit, light mouthfeel, overall a little underwhelming, but I'm glad to try it.

a lackluster brew from these guys, who have been nothing but amazingly impressive across the board so far. on tap at mead street station, it looks pink and cloudy in the glass, unassuming and unimpressive. no head and no bubbles, but the color is nice.smells like generic jammy fruit. it could easily be strawberry until i taste it, and the tartness of the raspberry comes out too. their regular bareback blonde is so good, i had much higher hopes for this. the fruit makes it too sweet, and the hops that were there in the original seem lost and under dosed in this edition. the raspberry, although it tastes authentic to me, adds very little, this was a better beer without it in my opinion. one thing i do like though is that it doesnt linger too long on the palate, and while its sweet in the middle, its somewhat dry in the finish, drinkable for that reason, although its absolutely under carbonated for the style. a good beer to have one of and move on, but 4 noses is capable of a lot better than this...
