Great for what it is, a fruit beer. If your looking for a beer with fruit, go elswhere, but for a dessert beer, this is pretty good. Actually gonna try mixing it with Dogfish’s Indian Brown for a rasberry brown ale.

Capa (2764) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Syrupy orange pour with a tall head. Fruity and fusel alcohol aroma with light caramel malt. Fire nose. Thick body. Very raspberry syrup from beginning to end. The fiery booze is surprisingly well hidden but the fruit. The heat of the booze shows itself by the burning sensation on the tongue much like a shot of something. I was a bit worried about this initially, and it’s gonna put me on my two-pack for sure, but it’s surprisingly "easy" for the abv.

Holy alcohol batman. Agree with some others that fruit flavors finesse gets lost in the boozing. Smells good. After taste is a bit harsh. But after buzz makes it all better.

On tap 7/13/16. Pours a deep ruby amber with a lasting white head. Nose is red licorice and nail polish and plenty booze. Taste is the same but follows the red licorice line. Hot, fruity, nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is raspberries and a really strong alcohol/whatnot. The flavor is raspberries, mild sweetness, malts and a slightly sour/increasingly alcoholic finish.

jsporrer (740) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2016
On tap @ HO1K beers. Pours a dark amber with a white head of foam. Aroma of tart cherry and other fruits. Taste is semi-sweet and tart fruity flavors with a warm alcohol finish. Somewhat medicinal and the alcohol overpowers the fruit flavors. Not as good as I had hoped for.
