Quality fruit beer. Good flavor, not too sweet, full of raspberry. Dry finish not too lingering, well balanced if not remarkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8.4 oz. bottle. Sweet raspberry aroma features fruit-flavored gummy candy scent. Floral aroma: rose petals. Soft, pleasant, effeminate aroma is excessively sweet and perfume-y for my tastes. Pours an effervescent, clear maroon or deep amber with a purple-red hue. Small to moderate amount of pinkish-rose beige head. A sourness dominates the flavor, which is surprising given that there is no noticeable sourness in the aroma. Fruit juice or frozen juice bar (raspberry) taste, especially in the finish. Despite the sourness, the taste is excessively sweet to be ideal, but I wouldnít go so far as to call it ďcloying.Ē Medium body. Frothy and reasonably lively in the palate. Cherish Raspberry is an unsophisticated brew that seems to be aimed at young adults, women, beer novices, and those who prefer fruity, simplistic cocktails. Thatís said, itís not actually, truly bad. Itís the beer equivalent of the cheap, off-brand candy your co-worker sometimes puts outside her cube: You donít really like it, but you still grab a couple of pieces as you walk by.

Bottle from TWM Sterling - deep ruby with a white head. Aroma is raspberries and funk. Taste is sour/tart, but itís not over the top. There is a light syrupiness that is common in lambics. Overall, average, Iím enjoying it, but itís not the best lambic Iíve had.

Poured from a refrigerated bottle. Pours a dark purple with a link head of foam. Aroma is all tart red raspberries and funk. Taste is initially all sourness and raspberry influence comes in about two thirds through the swallow and then moves back to all sourness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Must be in the mood or something, but this one is hitting the spot right now. Rich purple-pink pour with a nice clingy white head. Nose is a little off...rich raspberry, yes, but thereís something else in the aroma that seems a bit out of place. Nice full palate, and a bold fruity tart raspberry flavor that is tasting terrific right now.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear red pour with minimal head. Chemical raspberry concentrate, processed sweet garish cherries, and grenedine in the nose lead to a flavor filled with cough syrup and sweet throat succrets. I will go to the doctor tomorrow to confirm, but I think I just caught a case of the diabetes.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, poured a light reddish color. Thinner head. Aroma is crushed raspberries and slight cranberry. Medium heavy sweetness. Ave carbonation. As suspected, this is very sweet but good if you like rasberries.
