This is a nice fruity beer. It is dark burgundy red with small white head. Tastes like raspberries, smells like raspberries. All exactly as advertised. Not too sweet. Doesn’t really taste like a beer either. Still, it’s hard to be disappointed by it. It sure hits the spot if you’re thirsty.

This beer has a strong smell and taste of raspberries. It is very sweet. The color is a gorgeous red (looks like cranberry juice). No head on this beer. The flavor is not terribly complex, but the beer is enjoyable. The thin consistency of this beer and the sweetness make me think it would be a good beer to drink on a hot day at a cookout.

(550 ml bottle) Raspberry smoothie...Pours pink-amber with a tallish pink-white head that settles to a fluffy, foamy cap. Aroma of raspberry and vanilla, almost like ice cream. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft, like a smoothie. Flavor of raspberry and light vanilla with a light tartness. Even has a bit of bitterness toward finish and warmer samples finish a bit peppery. A fairly pleasant fruit beer with a hint of sour that balances the fruit sweetness.
