This one aged a couple years (I had a taate of a fresh one too). It definitely mellows quite nicely with age. It is still a little boozy, but the raspberry character has become more prominent

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a big, foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A big, fruity aroma featuring raspberries, malt, a touch of hops and a lot of booze.

T: Tasted of raspberries, hops, and some malt. The alcohol, while somewhat well masked,is unavoidable. Nonetheless, this is a pretty solid flavor.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.

D: Like a lot of DFH beers this one will not appeal to everyone. However, this is still a drinkable beer.
