Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle in Toronto. Pours ruby red, which is great. Good frothy head as well. Tastes and smells pretty much of red raspberries...which is great, but all it needs is some serious funk and we’d be talking.

Hammy78 (749) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Draught at Bar Volo. Pours a slight reddish, OK head and lace. Aroma is sweet and the taste was also sweet and of berries without a doubt. A little sweet for my liking.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2010
341 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a lager glass. Pours clear reddish-pink with a tall pink frothy head. The head slowly fades to a bare cover but leaves a moderate amount of loose lace. The nose has notes of raspberry, grain and a hint of hops. The flavour is tart and somewhat acidic, with a hoppy bitterness that grows towards the finish. The finish is moderate in length and somewhat sour with a hint of hops. On the palate, it is light in body with a smooth, watery texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is quite one-dimensional; it is all about the raspberries. A little sour for my taste, but palatable. 2010-12-14

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Long forgotten 341ml bottle thanks to cfrancis (if memory serves)
Appearance : Shiny ruby red with medium fizzy head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Raspberries with light adjunct and grain.
Taste : Raspberries with light veggy hoppy finish. Rather dry. Finish has enjoyable notes of raspberries.
Overall : Not too bad. Enjoyable raspberries taste but with some cheap stuff all around it. It gets better with time. The light off-flavours fades away leaving room to raspberries. I really think that raspberry beer need to be brewed with fruity American hops (like Brasseur du Temps Framboyante).

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Originally rated August 2005. Thanks to Ms. Sénécal for this one, bought a year ago at the LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario. Comes in an awesome off-white ceramic 750ml bottle. Pours a crazy-crazy-crazy tanned head that stays long enough. Lacing is mighty fine. Colour is red-purple. The beautiful nose is of raspberry purée. The mouthfeel is slightly tarty with a sourness found in the finish. The raspberry fruit in the mouth is quite mild though. Quite refreshing and not too sweet. Overall, a good fruit beer, and surprised it comes from Amsterdam Brewing.

Spab (2459) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2010
On tap at Volo. Pours a clear ruby red with small light pink cap. Aroma is overwhlemingly fairly tart raspberries. Taste is huge tart raspberries. Lingering tartness in finish. One note but pleasant.

fullers (253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle Brewery Shop. Poured pale red with pinkish medium head. As anticipated, fruity aroma, not unpleasant. Flavour tart and crisp. Refreshing.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
Draught @ Bar Volo, Toronto, ON: Pours red amber, no head at all. Boozy aroma with caramel and raspberries. The taste is exceedingly sweet, lots of raspberries, a few hops near the end. I’m not much a fruit beer fan to begin with but drinking a pint of this was like death to me. I can tell it’s decent for the style.

cfrancis (2410) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Aroma of strawberries and alcohol. Taste is tarte, alcohol crispness with a fruity tartness. Finish is almost plasticy. Insane amount of head. Took awhile for me to pour it.
