bottled 04-12-18

L-the beer pours pale, pink, and hazy. The head is a minimal half centimeter of white foam which quickly recedes to a thin ring. There is no lacing present.
S-The nose is a beautiful natural raspberry. It has that great quality of ripe raspberries being both sweet, but at the same time having a tartness to contrast.
T-On the palate the raspberry is far more subtle than the nose. The sweetness aspect is toned down and a light tartness is the biggest contributor. That is not to say this is a sour. It simply showcases the tart aspect of the raspberry. The wheat base is the stage and contributes only at the tail end of the sip. I don't get much in the way of belgian yeast and this comes across as more of an american wheat beer.
F-The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is light, but prickly. You could easily drink this in multiples on a warm summer day.
O-An above average fruit beer that I would have no trouble drinking again on a hot day. If your in the mood for a fruit beer or are looking for a beer to serve non craft drinking guest this would do nicely.

Hazy pink color. Tastes like raspberry lemonade. Not sour, I was concerned it might be.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a deep pink coloring, with a foamy, white head. Nose of tart raspberry and subtle floral notes. Flavors are fruity forward, with tart and sweet raspberry, and an herbal undertone. Light and crisp in mouth, with a fruity and tart aftertaste. Light, smooth, crisp finish. Solid for the style.

You get more raspberry in the nose. This is a light, fresh beer perfect for the Spring/Summer. It is a great looking beer, looks pink/ruby with a nice white head. Some raspberry, breadiness in the taste.

Tap at the brewery.

Pours a lightly hazy pinkish gold with a white film for a head.

Aroma is of fresh raspberries and citrus.

Flavor is of fresh raspberries and blackberries with a grassy malt undertone. Some light berry bitterness in the finish.

Medium body with a stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

One of the best American fruit ales I've had. Normally these taste kind of medicinal, but the fruit in this one is very natural and the beer overall is very light and drinks pretty easily.
