Postmark Brewing Raspberry Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 4.7% ABV | 17 IBU (C$2.26 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 355 ml, packaged on 15-May-2017, acquired 25-Aug-2017, reviewed 30-Aug-2017)

Appearance: hazy red-tinged medium amber with one finger of fizzy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberries, bready pale malt, floral/leafy. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, minimal bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, off-dry mild tart finish. (4/5)

Pretty decent, actually. Dominated by raspberry, but it smells like real fruit. Somewhat surprisingly, the sweetness is quite restrained, so this succeeds in bringing emphatic fruit flavour, without too much accompanying sweetness. A pleasant patio beer. (14/20)
