2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated from notes. The only fruit beer I tried on my 2001 Route 66 trip. Had a decent, not overwhelming berry taste, but the mouthfeel was just a bit too watery.

this was ok. it had a pleasant fruity aspect to it, more sweet than tart. Just the beer underneath the fruit was thin carbonated beery water.

Gold pour with a tinge of red. Loads of raspberry and caramel in the nose and the flavor. Just ok. Tap at the brewery.

In flight at brewpub. Golden pour with white head. Overpowering raspberry aroma. Sweet almost like a soft drink. Admittedly fruit beers are not my favorite.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Served in a chilled pint glass from tap. I asked for future brews to not be served in chilled glasses. I figured they should know this considering they go as far as brewing the beer, but alas they did not. Had this at the Brewery, which was a very nice place. Review from notes.
3.0 A: Clear light orange color. No head due to an amateur pour that resulted in beer up to the top of the glass.
2.5 S: Medicinal and sweet with an artificial mixed berry aroma. Did not impress me.
2.0 T: Seems like a half assed attempt at a good fruit beer. The medicinal and artificial sweetness come through in the taste as well.
2.5 M: Light body and indeed too light. Good carbonation though and very smooth.
1.5 D: There’s no way I could ever have had another. It was so goofy tasting that I couldn’t deal with too much of it. I can see why they make it though. I’m sure many of the BMC crowd would like this beer a lot.
Serving type: on-tap

West USA trip 2010. On tap @ the brewpub. The aroma has raspberries. Clear, yellow-red coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is slightly bitter, has some grass, raspberries and is a bit sweetish. Nice, refreshing.

On tap @ Beaver St - Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor is berries. Thin mouthfeel. Nothing special, but worth a try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a shade paler than the belgian... pale golden and clear with a thin ring of white.
the aroma is distinctly artificial raspberry mixed with some grain, grass and lemon-y tartness.
the raspberry overpowers flavors of cereal grain and a dry tart finish.
rather thin flabby feeling with a thin body and texture. 5/3/5/2/10/2.5
