  • It's a hot night here in Sandwich, IL. It's nine in the evening and it's 85 and humid, so I decided to try this fruit beer since it sounds cool and refreshing.

    Pours a cloudy medium amber with a huge three inch head. Head dissipates quickly leaving a half inch head on top.

    Aroma is bready malts and raspberry.

    Taste is just as I was expecting. It has a nice refreshing quality. I get lots of wheat up front that works it's way into a tart raspberry. Fairly sweet, but not over the top....just right.

    Mouth feel is light with medium carbonation. Clean and enjoyable.

    It's not the style beer that I would want every night, but on a hot summer night it really hits the spot! Try one!
