Dark Horse’s Raspberry Ale is a pleasant, feel-good summer ale with tart raspberry flavor, met with a bit of caramel and nut on the front end. While there’s some sweetness present, this brew is much more tart than I had initially expected, though I do enjoy it. Raspberry Ale also has a minor hoppy finish, which I think adds to the tart-like feel of the beer. All in all though, this is great for enjoying out on the patio on those hot days.
