3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
64 oz. growler from the taproom. Pours a rich, ruby red wit a medium slightly pink white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of tart, fresh raspberries. Raspberries are clearly the thing here but some mild grain, wheat and caramel notes. Flavor is juicy, tart, with nice fresh raspberries as, again, the focus. Crisp body with lively carbonation. Finishes fruity. A pretty good fruit beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Grand Haven, MI). Pours a deep copper ruby hue, faint haze but near transparent with a deeper body hue overall. Sun tea berry glow on the edges with small frothy whitish head that dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are touches of flaked wheat, raspberry juice and a faint skant bit of carmelized malt. Gentle earthiness, touch more raspberry and faint citrus and floral note. Initial is a bit tart, raspberry and faint metallic vibe. Some earthiness, raspberry juice or flavoring is fairly genuine but not deep. Some gentle toasty and caremlized malts, flaked wheat and a touch of jamminess. Earthy hops, a bit of graininess into the backend. Some earthy hops, flaked wheat, touches of gentle carmelization. A bit fruity, tart and lively up front. The darker feel into the backend is a bit toasty, firmer bodied with earthy hops coming on ok. Nice. Pretty pour. Deadened nose. Solid enough beer. A bit metallic/artificial on the raspberry front but not bad.

Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks good for the style; a Slightly hazy raspberry red with white lacing that has a touch of pink in it. Smells good too; real raspberries with a bit of tartness and a faint wheat backbone. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. This is a really good fruit beer!
