I thought I’d had good raspberry beers before. Apparently I haven’t. Near perfectly executed. Ruby pour with good head and lacing. Light touch of bitterness from the raspberry seeds. Tart and sweet. Wonderful. Bottle.

Pours deep burgandy. Tan head. Aroma not that nice: must overpowers the fruit smell. Great tasting start to finish. Complex tart sweet fruity slightly hoppy. Excellent!

September 12, 2014. Bottle. Pours deep red with a pink head. Aroma is lots of sweet and tart wild raspberries and very light oak and citrus notes in the background. Taste is sweet and tart fresh squeezed raspberry juice up front, finishes of with a refreshing and slightly more tartness than sweetness. Medium smooth bodied, soft cabonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Super cloudy pink and red color with white foamy head. Mixed feelings on it at first but really grew to like it at the end. Very raspberry and tarty as expected - but it isn't an annoying fruit taste. The beer behind the raspberry is fantastic.

750ml bottle poured into champagne flutes. Dark red opaque body with a finger of red-brown head. Aroma is fresh raspberries, raspberry coulis, tart raspberry. Taste is briefly tart then a rush of sweetness comes in. Some light grainy maltiness on the swallow. Light body, thicker silky texture that is nicely offset by the spritzy carbonation, sweet finish.
