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."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Brownish redish hue with white head that dissipated. Aroma is raspberry, sugar, slight lactic. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a slight tart following. Overall this is a sweet beer but nice to share with others.

750ml bottle pours a dark red color with a bit of frothy head. Tart at first, but smooths out very quickly. Incredible depth of fresh raspberry flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from bottle into tulip. Muted aroma that didn't offer much. Luckily the flavor came through in a big way. Great balance of sweet and tart, great mouthfeel, and easy drinking. It doesn't even taste like alcohol. You could give this to a kid. Don't, though.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber with spongy pinkish- beige head, raspberry aroma, sweet and sour raspberry taste, smooth and thick body, long tart finish. Delicious but does not feel like beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Cajun Cafe beer festival. Poured into small snifters. Brilliant reddish purple color with a pinkish fluffy head. The aroma is raspberries galore with a slight tartness and oak barrel. The taste is amazing with serious raspberries, blackberries, and a tartness. It is rather sweet which is the only downside but who cares. It is a delicious fruit beer with some tartness and dryness at the finish. Very very good.

Bottle @ ZZT X, small sample, thanks all for sharing! Cloudy ruby color, short head. Aroma is very fruity of raspberry, slight tart, some marzipan, mashed apples. Lot sweeter than I expected in taste, slight tartness only. Decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ ZZTX. Aroma is huge raspberry, other red fruits, light malt note, some artificial sweetness. Flavour is candy, red fruits, raspberry artifical sweetener. Nice, but I don’t get the hype.
