4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker. Appearance is a gorgeous dark ruby. There is a very thin red-tinted white head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is very sweet raspberries with a hint of malt. The taste is very similar to the aroma, sweet raspberries and light malt. It reminds me of sparkling juice. This is a very non-traditional beer and is much sweeter and fruitier than I’m used to. However, I absolutely love it. Founders has found a great balance between raspberries and malt.

Smak och doft av humle, malt och hallonbär och hallonsoda. Mycket frisk och fruktig, lagom sötma och fin beska med smak av hallonkärnor. Bra balans på smakerna.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A- Raspberries, wheat, berries, fake fruits.
A- Dark pink color, cloudy liquid, minimal head.
T- Raspberries, mixed berries, artificial, sweet.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, artificial fruit finish.
O- I was hoping since it was Founders it would be real good. Unfortunately, even Founders can’t make a solid raspberry beer. I’ve come to decide, if it’s a fruit other than peach or apricot, it’s probably not going to be a good fruit beer. Just a letdown., unless my bottle was old or something.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cafe Sara, july 11th 2014. Looks really nice, ruby red body with a small pinktinted white head and a lively carbonation. Aroma of raspberry candy, yeast. Taste of tart raspberries, sweet honey, a bit too sweet for me. Finish of berries and sweet bread. Taste is good, however a little onedimensional and gets a bit boring fast
