Strawberry smell on the nose, not raspberry. Almost a wine like smell. Taste of grape, clean fruits. Borders on gimmick but ok in a pinch.

Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows raspberries and raspberry jam alongside some soft sweet malt. A little artificial seeming. Flavours include cardboar malt notes, cereal grains and a raspberry lolly character. Body feels watery, carbonation is much too low.

Hazy amber with slight pink hues and no head; aroma is grainy and slightly fruity sour; Flava is malty yet dry and hints of tart wildberry fruit; feels light crisp dry; finishes dry and fresh grainy

EyeAmBaldman (250) - Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a clear orange with a tinge of purple. Aroma is caramel. No lacing in the glass and almost no head. Taste had a hint of raspberry with mild carbonation on the tongue. Too fruity.

A little lean, great fruit aroma. Palate a little off. Drinkable, with ok carbonation. Taste OK.

The appearance is golden brown but very cloudy. This is the only "fruit" infused beer that I enjoy because the taste is just a slight hint of raspberry. Oftentimes fruit infused beers can be over powered by the taste of the fruit. There is limited head at the top of this beer and the pour is very smooth. The taste is sweet upfront with a sweet finish. Well worth the purchase ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - small foamy head, clear medium gold color, mild but definitely there raspberry aroma and flavor, pretty decent malt backbone, not overly sweet at all like some fruit beers, pretty good overall actually ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer taste like Bud Lite with a hint of raspberries. An all right beer for a Sunday picnic.

I love sweet beers but this just doesn’t cut it. I was hoping. If it was a cider it would be awesome but it’s a bland taste. You can taste a raspberry flavor but flavor tastes kinda gross.

Lovely raspberry flavour, delicious aroma and extremely refreshing. This beer never disappoints!
