3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Blood-red, cranberry tinted color with some deep crimson in the center; exceptional clarity & topped with a pink-shaded, nimbus of a head. Aroma is strong raspberry, crushed & puréed with a mild, grainy undertone. Some bottles give off a very small touch of chalkiness behind the raspberry mash... other bottles don’t. Huge raspberry juice flavor, bordering on jam-like with a mild tartness up front & a more fruity-like, sugary sweetness in the finish. Aside from some faint grassy notes (hops?), this beer is all raspberry. Again, some bottles give me that very slight, medicinal/chalky twinge, others are completely void. The good bottles make a really nice fruit beer. The "off" bottles are still better than Founders Cerise.

12oz bottle, served in a snifter. Delicious as raspberry tasting. Awesome summer beer. Could also be a winter beer. Or a spring beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It pours a hazy cranberry colour with a small fizzy head and minimal lacing. The aroma is like opening a fresh punnet of raspberries and crushing them in your fist with tartness and citric smells. There is also underlying aromas of bread and yeast that hint to the base that forms the foundation of this beer. The taste is really sweet with a massive raspberry presence throughout that slowly turns from sweet to a tart presence that lingers for a short time after. The mouthfeel is light, with a syrupy texture and ticklish carbonation.
