__Rb81 (755) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle at home (bottled 09/28/16). Pours a clear brownish red with a pinkish fast disappearing head. Aroma of bready malts, light tart raspberries, candy sugar. Taste is heavy sweet, light tart and light bitter towards the end, sweet candy fruity bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a bright red color with a small white head. A big fresh fruity nose. Very smooth, huge fruit, light grainy base. Very good fruit beer, the raspberries and very clear and natural. Great.

Chandra’s favorite of the night (I think she drank 3 glasses of it). One out of about 25 that I sampled at the 2017 KLCC Brewfest! (No memory).

Smells of a berry field. Nice fluffy white head with sticky lacing. Goes down extremely smoooth. Explosion of raspberry flavor and not too sweet which can sometimes be an issue with fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a cloudy red orange with foamy nitro head. Aromas of creamy raspberry jelly. Flavors of raspberry candy and jam, fruity cotton candy, sweet malts and a bit of grass. Full and sweet.

luttonm (5432) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Thin cream on darker rose, clear body. Pale clean raspberry on nose. Thick, sticky sweet body. Creamy weight with lighter raspberry tart on finish. Oddly thick and cloying, especially unexpected by the appearance. Slight lactic character, like a raspberry cream ale. Pretty cloying. Raspberry tartness, while nice, is rather dominated by the heavy body. Just weird.

12 oz can poured. Trying to remember how many ratings of Founders I complained that they hadn’t shown up in Seattle yet. Pretty cool to swing by the local on the way home and pick up cans of mixed Founders for 2 bucks a piece. I’m sure I’ll get used to it. A clean ruby pour with a patchy, lasting fizz head. Sweet red raspberry aroma that’s also slightly floral. Flavor is raspberry juice. Slightly tart, more so sweet. A little syrupy. Cool and refreshing. Doesn’t get a whole lot more raspberry than this offering. Overall a very unique beer. I will choose to complain about there being too much fruit in a fruit beer. Good thing I love raspberries. I like it.

Bright and slightly hazy pink. Huge creamy head. Smells like liquefied sugar. Outrageously sweet.
