Very watery beer. Almost no taste. Did not get the raspberry flavor, very week. I was looking forward to this and was very disappointed.

Hated it. Awesome name, extremely underwhelming. Was really looking forward to it and it let me down.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Dark golden appearance, clear at the bottom and hazy towards the top. Average dissipating white head. Aroma is pretty much all raspberry fruitiness. Similar flavor, mildly fruity and sweet with light malts and minimal hop bitterness. Light thin body, a little watery, easy to drink.

Light beer that has a fruity taste to it. Golden in color and easily drinkable if you like fruit style beers.

Easy drinker, very light raspberry taste. Good call for a long day of drinking. Light on the alcohol as well.

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
12 fl.oz. can. Hazy golden in the glass with a malty nose. No hints of raspberries yet. The beer starts smooth, malty and slightly fruity. Raspberries not really. In the mainpart there is a it more raspberry-fruitiness, with smooth yeast and only slightly bitterness. The aftertaste is smooth, hints of raspberries together with smooth yeast.
Interesting brew, but the raspberries are very subtle. --> 10/12/11/10
