Unclear matt medium yellow orange color with a small average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, herbs, vegetables. Flavour is moderate sweet with a average duration, berry, raspberry, artificial. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20140315]

On tap at Dan's. The pour is a very clear, coppery color, with just a pocket of head and no lace to be found. The aroma is really thin. There is a good raspberry presence, but that's it no malty wheat character, nothing else other than raspberry and water. The flavor is equally as thin. There is a soft raspberry on the front and it quickly fades through to nothing. Highly disappointing. The mouth feel is just water, with no carbonation, and a light maybe somewhat fruity quick fading aftertaste. Not very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBD 01/13/14. Pours a clear light amber with just a touch of purple shading. The bottom of the bottle pour is hazy from pulp. Light head that diminishes in 2 minutes with little lacing. Very light nose of raspberry. Light bodied with some pulp. Normal carbonation level. The weak flavor profile is raspberry, but you have to look for it since there is very little flavor present. The finish has mild effervescence that brings raspberry more forward with a bit of tartness.

Brewdork (204) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle best by 3/15/14 poured into shaker. Hazy caramel color with small red (presumably raspberry) particles in suspension. A finger of off-white head with short retention and no lacing to speak of. Aromas of caramel, biscuit and fresh raspberries. Taste follows suit with just the right amount of raspberry. I feel that it deserves better than the numbers it receives on here. Sometimes a beer just needs to be refreshing and tasty, and this fits the bill for me.

Enjoyed from the bottle at my neighbors place while watching some hockey. I’ve had this before, and it’s a decent brew, but in terms of other fruit beers I’ve had its not very good. I happen to like it from time to time, but I typically wouldn’t seek it out.

Very watery beer. Almost no taste. Did not get the raspberry flavor, very week. I was looking forward to this and was very disappointed.

Hated it. Awesome name, extremely underwhelming. Was really looking forward to it and it let me down.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Dark golden appearance, clear at the bottom and hazy towards the top. Average dissipating white head. Aroma is pretty much all raspberry fruitiness. Similar flavor, mildly fruity and sweet with light malts and minimal hop bitterness. Light thin body, a little watery, easy to drink.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours amber with a white head. Dusty malt aromas. Taste is biscuit malt and caramel. Sweet. No fruit presence. Not great.
