So what do I think of this Louisiana raspberry beer?
Well I really wanted to love this beer but I didn't. There was a slight whiff of raspberry but that was about it. The colour was light amber, not purple in any way. There was no raspberry flavor and the chunks of raspberry that the label said I might find were disappointingly non-existent. The beer had low hops, which I love but it also had high carbonation, which I hate.
To be perfectly honest, this beer tastes like Budweiser with a raspberry dropped in it. And by that I mean it tastes like a cheap, mass produced beer. There is some flavor in it but nothing distinguishable or significant enough to call it a fruit infused beer.
This beer is not terrible but its not great. I'd take a Ruby over this any day.
