The first sour to ever get me into sours. I still have a very special place in my heart for this beer. Red amber in color, amazing raspberry flavor, I will always love and enjoy this beer.

Fantastic brew! Pours a dark, deep hazy red with an excited fizzy white head. The aromatic is nice, the brew smells almost like a raspberry liqueur, but this does not do the taste justice. The beer jumps up and down, side to side inside the mouth, and gives off wonderful flavors of juicy, ripe raspberries, rich, dark blackberries, tart lime, and light salt. My only complaint is that the finish is not long enough, although the brew is quite generous with flavor. If you're ever in the Buffalo area, try it! It's delightfully thirst quenching.

Gold reddish color. Nice feel ,carbonation was medium and the taste was mild and we'll balanced. Fruit was present but mild and it had a sour taste but again was mild. Not an extreme beer but that's what made it work,very easy beer to drink and would seek it out again

Pours a reddish golden color with a one finger head that gives way to an okay amount of lacing. The smell is of raspberries but not overpowering and a hint on the articificial side, like the old school freezeepops. The taste is wonderful there is a hint of raspberries that is clean and natural tasting over a very smooth malt. The mouthfeel is of moderate carbonation. Overall the abv is so hidden that you can barely tell it is there, the drink is crisp and refreshing an overall win all around.
