Great Divide Wild Raspberry Ale

This is a fruit beer from Great Divide, and it is their take on the raspberry ale. This is brewed with lots and lots of fresh raspberries and ought to be nice. ABV 5.6%.

This beer pours a clear, quite dark color. It is a dark reddish color with slight orange highlights when held to the light. Nice almost pink head, perhaps a light purple.

Aroma is powdery and perfumy with a tart raspberry nose. Faint aroma of fruit. More soft notes than anything.

Flavor is dry malts and wheat, with a small bit of raspberries. Not as intense as I was expecting. Tingly finish. Meh not that great actually.
