Smell: Nice mellow raspberry aromas, like raspberry tea. Floral, sweet, and lightly malty. Raspberry scone.
Taste: Earthy berry bramble; like fresh-picked raspberries that are just shy of being fully ripe so there’s a touch of tart, and a dry note from the brown (chocolate) malts backing it up. Not really dessert-y, but the raspberries are a nice complement to the brown ale.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a fulfilling presence that finishes simultaneously sweet, dry, and the lightest touch of tart.
Overall: Nicely done with a very nice presence; no one component is out of control (balanced well).
