well it's been fermenting for a week now. I tested the gravity last night and it's spot on after a week....I love the cal yeast strains I also gave it a quick taste. After a week of fermenting, flat, no extract flavor yet.....it's taste is quite good as an ale. It's not really tart for my taste if it's supposed to be. course it's only been in for a week. It's very smooth and I suspect will be easy drinking after the raspberry and carbonation.

I just bottled mine tonight. They are sitting in the corner carbing, so I'll let you guys know how they taste when I crack one open after awhile. I did sample a bit while bottling and it was pretty tasty. Looking forward to checking it out cold and carbed.

Last time I was reading into the New Glarus Raspberry Tart, the consensus was that they use raspberry flavoring to get some of their raspberry flavor. I don't know if it's true or not, just mentioning it.

Hurry up! Really wondering how this kit tastes

ok all....I still have another week in the keg for conditioning and carbing but I did take a small taste last night. Right now, it is actually quite tart but with a nice hop to it and a very pleasant raspberry finish. It's still pretty green right now, but as of right now I am expecting nothing less than an easy drinking, not my normal IPA, beer.

Sounds interesting! Haven't gotten around to ordering my kit yet, actually, but planning to soon.

I've had mine in the bottle for about 2 weeks now. I sampled a bottle over the weekend and it was pretty tasty. I'd have to agree with your description of being a bit tart with some hop to it. I'm really interested to see how the flavor matures over the next few weeks.
