COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Fruit and gluten free could be a bad combo but this works for me. Especially on a hot day. Raspberry is balanced by the base beer and it is not syrupy sweet. This is better than some regular fruit beers.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a short lived head, over a clear, copper colored (SRM 10) body....nose is light raspberry, grain.....taste is light beery sweet, then a light, slightly sour finish.....mouth feel is light and watery, carbonation makes for a soda like quality. This is a very light beverage, with minimal flavor and aroma, except for the raspberry. BJCP 5/3/10/4/5

Poured at the speed blogging - Beer bloggers conference
Nice rosy color, clear with a thing head. The aroma was light with berry and some hops. I liked the flavor it was subtle. A good summer time beer for those hot days you need to swig a good one. Nice beer. The flavors are not off with the Sorghum so that is nice.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is medium pinkish-amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with notes of raspberry/cherry soda. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation. It’s basically soda pop. Drinkable for a gluten-free beer, though.
