This beer is as advertised. Pours red. Strong raspberry taste. Easy to drink. Very simple beer. No fault with this one. Reminds me of Weizenberry from the olden days.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Apparently 60% 1554 blended with 40% raspberry puree. Pours with a very deep, near black body and a light pink to tan head. Head has good retention. Aromas of berries, raspberries specifically, light malic acidity. Feels slightly artificial. Flavors are bitter, tannic and tart with tons of berries and a hint of roast. Lively bubbles. Pretty dry. Slightly warming.

Bottled. Pours purple with pink foam. Smells like pure raspberries. Tastes primarily of raspberry (sweet and lightly syrupy and bitter) and ends with very light hopping.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ THE Steakout Saloon. Very dark maroon/brown appearance with a violet head. Dark raspberry nose that’s pretty sweet. Flavor is dominated by a quite sweet and fairly sour raspberry juicy flavor. Pretty sour finish. Raspberry flavor doesn’t taste nearly as natural in the beer as it does in Frambozen. It does deserve credit for masking the high ABV behind the sourness.
