UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Draft, at the Eccentric. Don’t know why I kept trying all the raspberry beers as I pubcrawl across Michigan, but here’s another. Opaque pink color looks like one of those candles in a wine glass. A more tart finish than other Raspberry beers, and a little less of a “wine cooler” taste... but not much less. Some malt works its way through, as well.

Weird looking beer with a unfiltered faded red hue and a small fizzy pink head which produced good lace. Aroma is raspberry, earthy yeast and toasted malt. Taste is very tart initially bit mellows out to a smooth mild ale finish. A bit too one-diminsional. Thin-bodied and watery. As the woman next to said "a chick beer".

Damn Michael, I did see the Texan alien pair - what the heck were you wearing? I grant you the run of your imagination on this brew - there are some citrus and ester stirrings in the deep swirls, but they are subdued by the too razbry.

On tap at Bell’s on Eccentric Day. A fruity darkish cloudy concoction. Delightful. Almost wheaty, or is that my imagination running away with me? Hey, I liked it, but I was standing next to the Texan-Hatted Alien guy. Wouldn’t you?

Very pretty appearance. Aroma is almost dance-recital cutesy. This is definitely a fruity beer. It’s not as artificial a taste and aroma as the lotion from those bath stores at the mall, but I’d still rather have my organic raspberries NEXT TO my beer than in it. I guess it’s not bad as fruit beers go.

Should largely just say "what argo0 said". Nice raspberry up front, quite obviously uses fresh raspberries to make it. Has the nice, tart bitterness, but then nothing, no malts, no chewiness, just empty flavor. If this had some malts to lengthen the finish, it’d be quite good, but it disappears too fast.

Cloudy red body. The aroma is clean raspberry. Tastewise, the front half is great raspberry, but it gets lost in the back half, leaving you with only half a beer.
