Spanish Peaks Honey Raspberry Ale

After trying the Black Dog Ale I was leery of this but the challenge of a new beer was hard to resist. This one is also from Spanish Peaks Brewing.

Beer temp. 48.0 F- 9.2 C. Pours light amber and clear with no head or lacing. Wheat-biscuit aroma with faint fruit and caramel undertones. First taste has definite raspberry flavor, slightly sweet and a light caramel taste with just a hint of bitterness from the hops. It has a really good balance of flavors, nothing overpowering but each element supporting the others. I was surprised it’s quite good. Somebody definitely got something right. After an aggressive pour had a small head but it faded away very quickly. Very light carbonation.

May be even better than Abita Purple Haze which is good, this has an actual ale taste with the other flavors. This is well worth a 6 pack. It’s clear so it’s filtered and not bottle conditioned so there is no charge at the bottom. Good job folks.
