I loved this beer. I shared this bottle on a trip to North South Campground in Haines Falls, NY with adrian910ss. Pours an awesome deep red colour with a frothy pink head. Fragrant aroma of raspberries, raspberries, raspberries and some malt. Tastes like a sweet yet tart carbonated raspberry and malt beverage. Another hit from New Glarus. It’s the only time I wish I lived in Wisconsin.

750ml bottle. Huge thanks to RobertDale via six bottle shipper across America. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma of sweet and tart fresh raspberries, and hint of funk. Taste is delicious and refreshing. Fresh sweet raspberry purée, followed by a slight tartness, and hints of funk. Soo good!!

750 ml bottle from a trade. Thanks Al! Loads of fresh raspberries on the nose. Almost like raspberry soda. Taste is jammy sweet with some light malt backbone and tartness coming through.

Thanks to Weezel for trying this one. A solid sour beer where the raspberry dominates more than the sour. Nice and mild.

Bottle, poured into a flute. Fruitty raspberry aroma, sweet raspberry flavor. Was never a fan of fruit beers but this one has me rethinking that.

Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy reddish-brown, with practically no head. The aroma is overwhelmingly raspberries. I struggle to come up with any other way to describe the aroma, except maybe some light caramel and wheat in the background. Heavy, fruity sweetness, and nicely tart. Medium body, sticky, sharp, and acidic. This is the way fruit beers should be done!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle is probably 3 - 4 years old.
Aroma is dominated by a raspberry jam character. Some light malt character in the background supporting the jam notes. Some light tartness.
Pours a murky, copper-brown with some amber hues and a medium sized, tan head of medium light thickness. Recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit before disappearing. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor starts with a fairly strong sweetness and a moderate raspberry jam character. Like the aroma there is a medium light pale malt and faint chocolate background character. Faint bitterness with some light tartness. Really tastes a lot like liquid jam.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a very sweet, jammy beer with tons of raspberry flavor and aroma. Light malt background notes and faint tartness. A beer for non beer people.
