3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Founders. Raspberry color with moderate fuzzy raspberry color that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good tart raspberry and citrus aroma. Medium body with syrupy texture. Moderate sweet flavor with a long tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish. Another very good change of pace from Founders.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Founders. Dark red body with a brownish tint, big light pink head. Tart raspberry and raspberry skin aroma. Bright, tart, crisp raspberry flavor, sweet and sugary with a nice bite, reminiscent of New Glarus Raspberry Tart but with a much higher ABV (and, hence, ethanol "kick"). Dense flavor profile; there’s no dearth of raspberries here. Very well-done, and it should be, as an 8-ounce tulip glass clocks in at $5.50!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Called "Belgian Razz" on tap at Founders. Cloudy rhubarb color. The nose is sweet and candyish, very little raspberry in there. The body is dry with a very slight tartness. Small hint of raspberry, not much else.
