Dark haze appearance. Aroma is an oddly off, maybe sour fruitiness. Taste has definite berry fruitiness, with some malt. Mouthfeel is juicy, not unpleasant.

amber, red, cloudy, white foam, light sweetness, light body, average carbonation. I liked the raspberry smell and taste to it. Not a strong flavor, but went well with some chocolate. Overall, its a good dessert or summer type beer.

Pours a super thick purple head. Just kidding Its a regular thick head. Amber cloudy color. It looks like wheat beer.

Smells of raspebrries. Not overwhelming. Not artificial. At least its not so strong that it smells artificial. I dont really smell any malt, but I can smell some hops. It smells inviting.

Flavor is raspberry. Its not artificial. Its slightly tart. I think its natural raspberry. Its smells more hoppy than it tastes. Other than the raspberry taste, its not great.

Mouthfeel is pretty light. Its slightly bitter. It finishes clean, no aftertaste. Its very dry.

Overall, its okay. I think they could have maybe sweetened it a little bit to make the flavor less tart. Or, they could have gone in the other direction and given it a little more hoppy taste. But it is what it is, and its pretty good. Not one that I would buy again, not because I dont like it. But because Im not wowed.

Pours a hazy golden with thin white head. Cut straw and raspberry on the nose. Slight citrus with a dominating raspberry hit and some earthy after tones. Nope.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - cloudy red orange with a decent head. Nose - raspberries, light malt and a touch of caramel. Taste - more raspberries, sweet malt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - yeah quite pleasant.
