Poured from 750 mL bottle and shared with friends.

A-Clear amber, with hint of pink, ...well carbonated with one-finger head,

S-Raspberries and alcohol.

T- Rather sweet raspberry syrup with strong alcohol presence all the way through. The alcohol takes over and hangs on for a long finish.

M-Medium bodied; carbonation gradually dies down, alcohol heat with syrupy feel.

O-Bold and aggressive concept. Too heavy on the alcohol when my mind is thinking raspberry. Definitely a sipper.

First had: on tap at Dogfish Head, Rehoboth Beach, DE

Slightly hazy golden-peach color with a small head that left a bit of soapy lacing, but didn't stick around too long. Aroma of raspberries and grainy alcohol, and not much else. Taste of raspberry, framboise-ish, but much bigger on the booze. Not much else in the way of flavor or complexity, pretty straightforward, pretty strong, delivers what it promises. Medium in body and carbonation. Not a bad beer, but definitely not for everyone. A shot of raspberry vodka is probably cheaper and you'll get the same effect, and be able to move on with your life quicker.
