UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 Bottle at monterey bar in Berlin. Pours clear Red. Nose is strawberry jam, lots of it, but still pretty natural. Palate is nice mixture of strawberry and tartness. A bit too sweet, but still a nice fruitbeer.

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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
