Wow, this one was definitely fruity!
I’m a big fan of lighter, flavorful beers, so when I saw this one from Axe & Barrel I had to give it a try. Generally a ‘fruit’ beer still tastes like beer, with the notes of hops and such, but this one was very much fruit forward. It was almost a wine.
The first thing you notice is the big bold color – it looks like raspberry juice! It’s not overly carbonated either, lots of really small bubbles like a sparkling wine.
Overall, this one was just OK. I enjoyed it in small doses, but don’t think I would buy again. There are many beers out there that I enjoy ‘one glass of’ but would never drink all night, and this is on that list for sure.
