4.5% ABV, Draft
Appearance: Darker pink to purple hue; very clear with large bubbles.
Aroma: Raspberry tartness up front with a slight malt character.
Taste: Sweeter than the aroma lets off, but it has a rather tart twist at the end. This brew is mainly a high dosage of raspberry with some light maltiness.
Mouthfeel: Very light bodied and easy drinking. The larger bubbles give it some cider-like qualities, but it is crisp and clean overall.
Perrin certainly delivers the raspberry flavor so many fruit beer drinkers search for. The grains are subtle in the background, but this brew doesn’t seem like just some fruit explosion (though it borders closely). I’d have a hard time having it multiple times because it’s a bit on the sweet side, but the sour tones help it go down easy. A great spring/summer choice.
