2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2013-10-10. Pink tinged yellow body with a small off white head. Aroma is floral and phenolic, some supririsingly strong perfumey notes, muted raspberry. Flavour is mild, tart raspberry sort of perfumey character is a bit odd at tims. Average to light bodied palate, good carbonation. The bottle is likely quite old at this point unless they have brewed this again so I initially thought that it might be a bit off, but the perfumey character that is the biggest negative for me seems to have been present in earlier reviews as well. Bottle via trade with Ferris.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared mostly with mu wife while out at the lake. Very very watery with genuine tart raspberry flavour, but little in the way of lacto sourness, lightly phenolic but little else to elevate it beyond a tart raspberry cooler-ish beverage. Of note, I didn’t get any of the funky gym socks or smoke that others found in this beer. Rather it seemed incredibly light and simple.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [650ml] shared with GregClow, mds, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a clearish gold-peach with an average size semi-lasting fizzy white head. Odd aroma, not bad but certainly unique, of raspberries, lactic notes, herbal and floral notes and it’s quite perfumey. Flavour’s the same along with a slightly harsh finish. Average bodied. I can see some not liking this but I didn’t mind it.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Yeast and raspberries on the nose. Bubble an highly carbonated clear orange with a white fizzy head. Sweet and tart with heavy carbonation. Not enough flavor or for that matter anything, almost like a very fizzy cheap wine.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Light red ginger ale appearance. Smells like raspberries and old socks. Kaleidoscope flavour of bleach fruit dirty socks and a hint of vinegar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle pours a pinkish amber color with a fast dissipating bubbly white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light raspberries with a hint of smoke. Taste is tart raspberries with an odd smokiness and not much else. Light bodied with some nice carbonation. A decent fruit beer with kind of an odd flavor, but still somewhat enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
650ml brown bottle. Pinkish pour, short creamy white cap. Lught white lacing Nose is floral, big raspberries, natural smelling, not too sweet. Taste has a tartness up front, tangy raspberry fruit, a bit of plastic. Dry end. High carbonation, light body. Doesn’t quite come together for me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I appreciate that Alley Kat has the guts to try something like this, but it didn’t really work that well. Smells and tastes like lightly acetic water with raspeberries and sanitizing solution. The nose and flavor literally have a chlorine - esque flavor. Unpleasant.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured pink as if you mixed kool-aid and beer. Aroma is tart raspberry with a floral presence. The taste is quite similar - tartness is present but the real barnyard quality I think they hoped for is lacking. Quite carbonated but overall kind of weak and watery. Glad they had the balls to try it just next time I hope they go balls to the wall. This needed to assert itself more.
