3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with foamy white head. Smells of raspberries and lager yeast with a bit of sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Not bad, and drinks easier than an 8% beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear orange amber red color. Thin off-white head, dots of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry. Lighter, and more drinkable than you’d expect for an 8% beer. Light tart taste, light bite to it. Good bright refreshing mild raspberry flavor, and some bready malt. Cool strong fruit lager to try for the summer.

pours a rose pink - looks much like grapefruit juice with frothy white head. Aroma is fresh raspberries very fresh with mild notes of sugar. Flavor is fresh raspberry, nutty almond and just a hint of tart lemon to off set. Body is light and lceansing with active carbonation to make it light on the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Capital Ale, 9/9/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, raspberries, grains, yeast, and floral hops.
Appearance: Pours a reddish, amber, and slightly purple color with a small head.
Flavor: The taste is rather sweet, lots of raspberry, some light malt, and light bitterness.
Palate: The body is medium, fairly fizzy mouthfeel, and a light booziness.
This one is rather similar to the Purple Haze, I don’t mean that in a bad way, but you can see and taste the obvious resemblance. It is definitely a sweeter offering then what I tend to enjoy, but I found the sweetness working pretty well in this one. I like what they did here.
