12 oz can split with my wife. Pours a very light pinkish yellow with a moderate off-white head. Aroma and flavor feature ripe red raspberry, apple, and white grape while still clearly remaining "beer." Slightly sweet with just a hint of tartness. Nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Refreshing.

Pours golden yellow with a 1/4 inch white head, which quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing.

Aroma is sour, fruity, floral.

Taste is tart, tangy, fruity, raspberry.

Thin bodied, light carbonation. Dry finish.

A strange one. More like wine than beer. But it's pretty good.

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is raspberry candy with a touch of rose wine. Very light bodied, sweet, with high carbonation. Nice, sweet and light. Nice sessionable fruity ale that makes a great wine alternative. Would get this again.

On tap. Poured a very pale golden color with a small, fizzy, white head of foam. It smelled of fruit, floral notes and white wine. Very sweet with a lot of fruitiness.

12oz can into a pint glass. Canned 7/18/19, so 2 1/2 months old.

Very faintly hazy pale golden yellow body. Small white head quickly dissipates to a ring and covering. Very little lacing.

Smells like raspberry juice mixed with some rose wine.

Upon tasting, it's sweet but not sickeningly so. There seem to be some background flavors cutting the sweet. It's a touch winey, and there is a raspberry presence.

Mouth around medium, finish a weak raspberry wine.

Overall, not an unpleasant fruit beer, but not that special either. Did give me a headache.

Southern Tier Brewing Co. "Muse Rosé Ale"
12 fl. oz. can, coded "D.O.B. 07/18/19 12:34:44 FL"
$2 @ Wegmans Cherry Hill Wine, Liquor & Beer, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: The label reads "ale with white grape juice & raspberry flavor & colored with beet juice". I'm not sure where the beet juice comes in because this is a slightly hazy straw gold in color beneath a finger-thick head of fluffy white. I wonder what it would look like without the beet juice. The aroma is sweetish, almost candyish. In fact, it smells like a raspberry candy. On to the flavor... well, the aroma was right on although the flavor is more complex. I'm getting some golden malt, the grape, and... well, maybe it's only that much more complex. It tastes like a PEZ candy. I don't find it too sweet overall, as it doesn't get sticky in the finish but I've had better rosé beers that have tasted more like actual rosé wine. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and gently crisp with a moderate carbonation. The head didn't hold up too well and only some initial lacing was left behind. I think this would be a great summer beer, but I also think it could be better - unless sweet is what you want.
