3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask version at Barley’s 9th Annual Mini RAF (05/12/12): The beer pours a hazy orange color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries and malt. Medium body with a moderately tart raspberry character and notes of hops and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a raspberry aftertaste that luckily does not veer into artificial flavoring territory. Above average overall.
