Like crack this. Well, smells of raspberries of course. Hint of vanilla. Very smooth, slightly sweet, but not too much. Nice complex maltiness under the fruits. Just enough acidity to keep it from being a wine cooler. I always say I don’t like framboise, but this might make me try a few more. Simply excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy burnt amber, thin ringed head. Nose is rich billowing raspberry and lean grassy brightness. Initial taste is rich upfront tart, fading seedy berry. Soft carbonation and itchy tart mouthfeel. Finishes lean creamy raspberry, obvious, heavy sweetness. I’d be keen for more time with this. Cheers BnnnahhhhhhEhhjj

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a deep ruby with a thin light pink head and no to lacing as it falls down to a film. The aroma is incredibly sweet raspberries. It’s like a jam, almost to a point of being slightly off-putting. I was hoping for a little more of a tartness than the sweet bomb here. It’s still good, but doesn’t play into what the name suggests. The flavor is great. Lots of raspberry lots of syrup, and even a little bit of jam. The tartness comes through a little on the back end, but again, I was hoping for a little more. The mouth feel is thicker and jammy, with a soft carbonation lingeringly great fruity sweet finish. This is really good, but a little more tart on it, and it could’ve been amazing.
