Clear dark amber caramel color with moderate activity. Slightly creamy beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with thin legs. Flavors of raspberries, light cherries, sweet grains, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, barley and herbal hops. Slick full body with soft prickly and crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, more sour than bitter, softly dry, very accessible black fruity feel, slightly grainy and bready. Truly a fruit beer, does the job well, with some hints of red ale spices. Not much complex, nor well balanced. Highly sugary, yet it ends not too bad with a pleasant thick berry tart effect on the tongue, similar to a jolly rancher candy. Average taste with a well rounded body. Decent freshness, and the scent is incredibly inviting. Overall okay quality craft.
