3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a champagne flute. The beer pours a deep ruby color, with a fairly frothy light pink head. The nose shows notes of strawberry, in a manner that almost seems artificial. Background notes of bready malt come through. The palate is unabashedly sweet, lacking the expected tartness, and coming dangerously close to being cloying. The strawberry flavor comes through and is pleasant. Carbonation is moderate, mouthfeel is appropriate. The finish leaves a fairly large amount of residual sweetness and strawberry character. Overall, a very pleasant drinking experience, especially as a dessert beer, but not quite a "tart."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into tulip glass. Pours a reddish dark amber with a very fine, off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of sweet raspberries, raspberry juice. This is a sweet beer, though not cloying. Tastes of ripe raspberries, the tartness is buried by the sweetness. Substantial body, a bit syrupy; soft, fine carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle via unknown. Pours a luminous reddish-pink, not much head. Aroma fruity, some lacto, white sugar. Body lively but sickly sweet-sour. Really? This is sweet to the point of being gross.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle poured into a Belgian tulip. Overripe raspberries come through in abundance. As it mellows, the aroma becomes more raspberry pie with some cranberry notes and just a light dampness that dissappears into background. It pours a unique, clear, sparkling cranberry color with a pink foamy head that retains a medium thin ring and leaves a splotchy, light, runny lace. The taste is highly sweet with a medium high sour, a light bitter, and maybe even a bit salty, too. The beer is thin, yet oily, and a bit sticky as it warms. The carbonation is bubbly and fizzy. The light body contains notes raspberries throughout the drink (so much raspberry). It finishes crisp with raspberries, a little bit of pie crust, and grass at the finish. It’s highly astringent with notes of light grass lingering with berries (raspberry cherry). A very tart, decently refreshing drink.
