New Planet 3R Raspberry Ale: The Finest! Gluten-Free Product Review



This has been my first ever beer review and it has been an ultimate experience. Having tasted a few beers here and there over the past years I recruited @egjadzis, beer cynosure to guide me through the tasting.  This beer tasting is for New Planet Raspberry Ale. Each feature of the beer was scored on a best out of 10 scale, with a 50 being the highest score a beer can earn...


New Planet Gluten Free Beers

  •   Aroma: 8
  •   Appearance: 8
  •   Taste: 8.5
  •   Mouthfeel: 9
  •   Overall Experience: 8.5
  •   Total: 42



This beer tickled the auditory senses with a standard hiss upon opening.  The beer poured a translucent golden / light copper color with a fair white head that quickly dissipated.  A thin stream of bubbles emanated from the bottom of the glass.

Aroma of raspberries, toast, and fruitiness. The taste was much of the same, with a light bitter "hoppiness" in the finish.  No pungency.

This entire experience has been pleasurable. I have to say that this is my favorite gluten-free beers to date from inception through last sip.
