Hazey (obviously) with a tint of purple and nice white head. Light raspberry fruit tones in the aroma and taste. A great light summer beer.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif. Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack) Purchased: Oct. 11, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 11, 2014 Misc.: Best by Jan. 1, 2015 Poured a grapefruit juice, straw hazy color with one finger of gray lacing. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass in bubbling streams. Poor lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention. (Sight - 3.38) Smelled grape, dark raspberry, blueberry, black cherry, slight blackberry, wheat grass and grape Sweet Tarts. (Smell - 3.38) Tasted much better than the smell. Got dark raspberry, blueberry, Smucker’s raspberry jam, black cherry, purple grape, honey wheat, Sweet Tarts and blackberries. (Taste - 3.88) Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, fruity, refreshing finish. (Feel - 3.75) For the style this was decent. I’m a sucker for fruity beers. I don’t know where this ranks with the others, but it was OK. I’d have it again.

A nice blend of beer and berries. Smooth tasting with a rich after taste. Amount the better berry flavored brews.

Julie remembers and remembers she's not crazy about this fake rasberry flavor. Bit watery. Julie gives 1.8 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davros (1994) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2014
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.

closey22 (923) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
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 (277) - 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
