On tap at AZ Wine RBWG. Pours a bright red color with a small white head. A sweet berry nose, a fizzy light palate. The flavor is a light easygoing Raspberry, toasted malts. Decent.

It is hazy pink and is very watery and slightly sour. It was super popular the day I was at Bell’s but I have had better Raspberry ales.

Fresh rapsberry aroma. Pink-orange in color. Fresh raspberry flavor with a sourish (but not too much) finish, and not syrupy!

Tap at Bells City TAP House event PBW10. Pours a hazy pinkish with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma and flavor of the raspberry, some tart wheat notes. Decent fruit beer.

GABF 2009. Clear dark red color with a small, fading pinkish head. Aroma is lots of raspberries, not particularly sweet. Flavor is raspberries, a little more sour than sweet, without much else really to it. Fairly dry on the palate with medium-light body and medium-high carbonation. Decent but I expect more from Bells.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. I can’t say I’ve experienced a beer that had an aroma so different from the taste, but actually do work well together in this one. The fruit aspect of this fruit beer is not overpowering, which is nice, as there’s a good moderate raspberry fruit in the flavor, but this does not come out so much in the aroma which consists more of funky cheese, olives, and just a light sweet fruit. The appearance really looked like cranberry, and not so much like, which isn’t too surprising. Also, a good wild yeast to go with the sweet raspberry. I liked it, but it’s not my favorite.

Very dry raspberry flavor. Not a sweet beer, but very recognizably raspberry, though with a bitter finish to it. Not my favorite fruit beer, but worth a try.

On tap 7/13/09 at the Eccentric Cafe. Pours a darkish red with a white/pink head. Nose is a snoot full of fresh picked raspberries. Flavor follows suit, with a bit of sour and a nice tart to it. Excellent fruit beer.

Draft at Eccentric Cafe 10-11-08, listed as 5% alc. on the board, pours a very clear bright dark red and ruby, gave a white head that diminished quickly, raspberry aroma without any sweetness and not much else on the nose, flavor is straight raspberry that is pretty tart on the tongue, I could not taste any malt, this is a dominant raspberry beer with very little sweetness, has a medium mouth feel and not much carbonation, I was not really impressed with this drink, it is not bad and I could not find any off fragrance or taste but is was boring towards the end of the glass.
