The palate is really nice it feels like drinking sparkling water, but the flavour is really lacking.

HIGHB4LL (275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: finger of white head that diminishes quickly, light yellow/pink color, hazy, poor lace, Aroma: raspberry, slight bread, slight butter. Palate: light body, thin and somewhat dry texture, average carbonation, dry finish, abrupt. Taste: very sweet, slightly tart, very similar to raspberries. Overall, very fruity, not balanced and not appealing to the eye. Not for me.

scotchzombie (289) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Pours very hazy berry-brown-orange. Almost like a juice with a purple hue. An aptly named beer. Head is frothy and white and quite loud as it pops to a finger depth. Wet lacing. Aroma is - of course - raspberry. Taste is wet, tart, lemon and raspberry. A bit of funky malt with some bitterness to finish. Smells better than it drinks. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet tart finish. O- A little bit of a let down. Wasn’t as balanced as I thought. The raspberries were a little too much.

Hazy dark amber with a foamy white head that stays around 1/2", swoops of lace. Taste is as advertised: malt with an infusion of raspberry nectar. Not offensive, but not very desirable, either. Average, as in 2.5 rating.

EtTuCthulhu (899) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2013
The beer pours a hazy burnt orange color with a small white head that fades soon after the pour, and the aroma blends lager yeast, raspberries (so much so that it smells almost artificial), and a somewhat spicy malt. The taste is more sour than sweet; in fact, it is barely sweet with the tartness of the raspberry being the predominant flavor. The mouthfeel fuses a slick and thin texture, light body, soft carbonation, and a lasting finish.

Pours a orange color with a thin white head. Aromas are simply malts and rasberry. Far too sweet to be really enjoyable.
