The beer starts out with a fresh, tart raspberry aroma and pours a brilliantly clear dark pink with a light pink head. The flavor is a touch more juicy, but is offset by a nice creaminess to the texture of the beer, which works well with the sweet raspberry flavor. There’s nothing really complex in the beer, just a clean, bright fruit flavor that’s relatively drinkable. Fruit beers are tough not to make too sweet and cloying, and this one avoids that trap, and has much more right than wrong. The raspberry is fresh enough, and the creaminess of the beer really helps. A summer quencher, this one would work in any picnic cooler.
