She was dressed as Pirouette in red...pours a deep crimson body with full pink cap of foam. Head settles quickly, leaving a sticky lacing. Wafts of fresh summery fruit with some funky yeast. Massive berry taste with a pleasant tartness. Slick mouthfeel, slightly syrupy consistency, and a lingering sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crystal clear garnet red with a light off white head. The aroma is raspberry with just a hint of cherry. Flavor is also mainly raspberry with a malty note. Tart finish. Medium body, good fizz, though not too much. Reminds me of a wine cooler from back in the day. Packs a good punch with its 9.2% ABV. Not overly boozy tasting. Great desert beer. I wouldnt want a large quantity of it, you might be painting the town red! Or at least your walls!!

Bottle to tulip. Bright, hazy, pink, thin head fades fast. Sour fruity nose. Sweet, semi-sour, but comes with a kick. Good, but for the style I prefer the bottles I've gotten from New Glarus.

On tap. Lasting white head. Aggressive raspberry aroma. Never tasted anything more raspberry-y besides raspberries. Candylike, hint of metal. I am a sucker for a red beer, I think I always give them fives for appearance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Winter ’14-’15 release draught at Meadhall on 4/9/15.
Clear, bright red raspberry colored body is topped by a pink-flecked white head that is initially large and fluffy, but quickly recedes to cover.
Full-on raspberry puree in the nose. Juicy, authentic and quite sweet. Light vanilla sweetness as well, with touches of alcohol.
The flavor is raspberry, malt sugar (honey, vanilla) and light alcohol. The natural tartness and dryness from the acids in the raspberry juice and raspberry seeds seems to be the only thing here attempting to balance. It dosent; not even close. But, I will say the raspberry sweetness, while overpowering and out-of-balance, is still enjoyable in the dessert sense or just for someone who likes raspberries. That being said, the beer displays very little beer character, gets a bit too alcoholic after warming and despite the high sugar content, still seems a bit thin and watery on the finish. I get that they want to display the raspberries, and make this a dessert beer, but I still think it could have accomplished this while being a good deal more dry.
