Surprised I havenít rated this before! Most recently drank out of a bottle at the annual DanaFest! Has a lovely fruity aroma with slight maltiness. A wonderful refreshing, crisp taste. A great summertime brew!!

Dark haze appearance. Aroma is an oddly off, maybe sour fruitiness. Taste has definite berry fruitiness, with some malt. Mouthfeel is juicy, not unpleasant.

amber, red, cloudy, white foam, light sweetness, light body, average carbonation. I liked the raspberry smell and taste to it. Not a strong flavor, but went well with some chocolate. Overall, itís a good dessert or summer type beer.

Pours a super thick purple head. Just kidding Itís a regular thick head. Amber cloudy color. It looks like wheat beer.

Smells of raspebrries. Not overwhelming. Not artificial. At least itís not so strong that it smells artificial. I donít really smell any malt, but I can smell some hops. It smells inviting.

Flavor is raspberry. Itís not artificial. Itís slightly tart. I think itís natural raspberry. Itís smells more hoppy than it tastes. Other than the raspberry taste, itís not great.

Mouthfeel is pretty light. Itís slightly bitter. It finishes clean, no aftertaste. Itís very dry.

Overall, itís okay. I think they could have maybe sweetened it a little bit to make the flavor less tart. Or, they could have gone in the other direction and given it a little more hoppy taste. But it is what it is, and itís pretty good. Not one that I would buy again, not because I donít like it. But because Iím not wowed.
