Thanks Adam for sending this one to me! He’s sending more of these so figured I’d crack this one open and give it a try. IT’s currently 9 months old so I hope it’s still great!A – Very much filtered with no sediment at all, gorgeous blood red appearance with a 2 finger head.

S – The nose has nothing like fake raspberry syrup. It is pretty much all earthy sort of muddy / grassy fruit nose.

T – Wow. Simple yet so complex. The malt or beer itself sort of takes a back seat to this gigantic raspberry taste. It’s a handful of raspberries in a glass with carbonation. That’s the best way to put it.

M – Nice big mouthfeel on the swish. tart and dry finish. very grape-skin like as I rub my tongue over my teeth

O – Very drinkable. Simply ann incredible fruit beer! Possibly the best I’ve ever had.
