2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The pour is a pink color, almost like cherry 7-Up with a very short lived foam.
S: Definitely some butter along with cardboard and paper, smells almost like a paper mill. There is not much raspberry to it along with some mild sugar and grass, perhaps some straw and water.
T: The flavor is similarly poor. Lots of wet cardboard and paper with a mild raspberry flavor. A bit of sweetness as well as some grainy sugar and a touch of metal.
M: Watery and light with a medium carbonation.
O: It’s no Indian Wells Raspberry Ale, but it’s not something I’d like to drink, either.
