2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A hazy yellow color with a slight raspberry aroma. Smells very dry and malty. Slightly refreshing in taste, with mild raspberry aftertaste. Raspberries taste artificial and overall the beer is one I would not run out and buy again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Really came across like a lager with raspberry in it rather than an ale. Faint raspberry aroma. Yellow with a fizzy head no real lacing on the glass. Flavors of raspberry and some grassy hops. Not much malt. Raspberry flavor is strong, but I found the combination to work. Not too sweet. Slightly strong in the carbonation, but I found it pretty refreshing.
