Bottle. No head (still). Body is medium pinkish-amber. Aroma is notes of raspberry (including the seeds), Jolly Rancher apple-watermelon candy, honey, alcohol, carpet/rubber, perfume. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, flat carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Not too bad. Not a big fan of the nose, but there aren’t any egregious fusels, just some light off phenols in the background. Raspberry is the most noticeable aromatic, but it also has some candy-ish fruit character as well. Nice flavor balance, neither too sweet or too tart.
