I feel like I say this every time I drink a hazelnut beer, but I'm not really a fan of hazelnut. It's also worth noting that I'm not huge on raspberry either. As a side note, they removed the beard from Hazel. I'm getting sick of this politically correct bs. Hazelnut, faint raspberry and some coffee as well in the aroma. Taste has a mix of hazelnut and raspberry coming in together, followed by coffee and finishing with a little bit of bourbon. There's definitely more hazelnut in this than in last year's regular version, but it's still not overwhelming and the other flavors help balance this one. The body is medium-full with a medium amount of carbonation. I think this would be better if the carbonation was a bit lower. Flavorwise, this is pretty tasty. The balance is very good and the addition of raspberry actually works very well. The coffee is quite tasty as well. I wish the bourbon was more prominent in the flavor, but that's not a deal breaker. I'll have no problem drinking the other can I have of this. Overall, I'll give this a 4.25/5
