One of the most UNDERRATED beers IMO.... low ACL. % but its light and tastes good... I donít believe in fruiting my beer, but if its done in the brewery, I donít mind :)

A fantastic session or summer beer. The raspberry is subtle yet delicious, this beer is light and smooth. Yes, it is 4.2% and its not an IPA so everyone on here hates it but if you are not stuck inside of a box do yourself a favor and try this one.

I love this stuff!! Itís a great tasting beer with a unique and pleasant appearance. It finished with no aftertaste. This is a simple and light beer thatís great when youíre eating bar food or just having a few.

Poured from a bottle into an icy mug. I actually really liked this, despite the fact that I hate fruity beers. Nice, light taste. Pours cloudy with a faint purple color. I didnít notice any floating sediment in my glass. I donít know if Iíd drink more than one of these at a time, but Iíll definetly buy another single...Oberon it is not.

The most recognizable thing about this beer is how smooth it finishes. It tastes sweet and smells like vanilla, but it drinks so easily that it can be consumed in big gulps to really enjoy all of its flavor at once.

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.
