3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, deep, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white/pink/purple head. Great retention. The aroma is very reminiscent of New Glarus Raspberry Tart – just straight up raspberries. No big “fruit extract” component present here. Medium-bodied and milky with moderate carbonation. The flavor leans just a touch toward the sweet side of balance and is just a smidge tart. Faint medicinal element; otherwise, this brew is just fruity and tangy. Well made.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

Sweet and slightly sour-tart flavour, light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Raspberry flavours upfront with a tinge of malt beyond; moderately sweet and mildly sour-tart finish with notes of raspberries in the aftertaste. A tad sweet but nevertheless likeable and refreshing. 15.II.13
