4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear ruby red with moderate pink head. Aroma is all about the raspberries, with enough yeast and even some grass to keep this from being a boring fruit beer. Taste is sour at first with the sweetness coming in the middle. There’s enough yeast and hops to let you know this is a beer, after all, and not just an alcopop. Medium body with lively carbonation. A great dessert beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with a very big pink head that settles into a nice density, the beer is a very clear ruby red color
Aroma: tart, raspberry, smells good but faint
Taste: raspberry, bread, tangy, subtle alcohol, bit of bitterness on the finish too
Palate: frothy yet thick, leaves a slightly bitter cranberry syrup aftertaste, medium mouthfeel
Overall: very interesting beer, not like most fruit beers, it's subtle flavors and robust body work really well together

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very raspberry aroma with sour and sweet background and a touch of aluminum foil. Appears like cranberry juice with pink foam and lace. Tastes like a rapberry wine; tart, sour, and sweet are all very well balanced with a touch of bitter hay. Texture is nearly a 5, foamy, thick, and light. Oversll, very good, could be hopped a touch more to tone down the sweetness. Tastes a bit like an aged Founder’s Rubeus.

Tap. Super dark ruby-pink. Nice little bit of lingering head. Super raspberry nose - sour but sweet. Full body. Tastes of tart raspberry juice with the slightest of yeast undebites to cut the super juicy aspect. Would probably benefit from aging.
