3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Appears almost orange in the glass but as I was pouring I could see pink highlights. Lightly tart fruity notes are detected in the aroma mixed with some Belgian candi sugar and floral hops. The taste is distinctly raspberry but only offers us a hint. The rest of flavors are also offered up in small doses (Belgian candi sugar, caramel, floral hops). Easily approachable, very refreshing, and nothing mind-blowing; just an all-around pretty good beer.

Overripe lemon and apricot nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy peach colored head. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Overripe lemon and stale raspberry flavor on a blanket of stale malt. Really not so great.
