I was surprised to see a fruit beer released in the winter time until I saw the ABV, then it made more sense. Golden amber color, nice raspberry and wheat nose. Smooth medium body with great raspberry character and very well balanced. Somewhat reminiscent of a raspberry liquer, but without the strong alcholic presence. Light dry raspberry finish. Interesting and well made take on a summer beer.
