Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2005
On tap at Bells (Eccentric Cafe). Red body, thin off-white head. Light aroma of raspberry syrup, the subtlety likely due to the cold temperature this was served at. Raspberry syrup flavor, sweet but not overtly so, and a bit tart, with light bready malts and earthy hops becoming especially apparent in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied. A better-than-average Raspberry Ale though nothing unique.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Draft @ Maduro, GTMW pre-party. Slight haze, ruby body with pink head. The aroma is loaded with fresh, ripe raspberries. The flavor is mildly sweet and one-dimensionaly raspberries. Thin, slightly watery texture with a bit of seedy bitterness.

queenholly (3089) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle sample at Beoir Go Leoir. Earthy musty sweet raspberry malt aroma. Cloudy deep rose with a small white head. Earthy sweet raspberry malt flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2011
On tap @ AZ Wine during 2011 RBWG - Pours a red color with a small pink head. Aroma and flavor is full of raspberries. Not too sweet. Medium bodied, dry finish. A pretty nice beer.

DrnkMcDermott (2869) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2003
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.

OldGrowth (2842) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Snifter at triangle wine. Ok aroma. Sweet. Fruity raspberry. Tad sour. Hazed red color. No head or lace. Tart flavor. Lighter body thin smooth mouthfeel tart finish. Ok. Nice in the fruit beer area. But not wowing me. Just ok.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
On tap @ Maduro, Bells GTMW pre-party 8/10/07. Hazy pinkish red with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh tart raspberries, Sprite, light Cherry Luden’s cough drops. Flavor was again the Luden’s (not necessarily a bad thing in this case), a and bit of Band-Aid. Moderate carbonation with a light body. A pretty decent raspberry beer

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Pour reveals a reddish haze with a bit of a white head. Aromas are straight raspberry (a bit on the sour side) with little else to offer. Still, it’s not like an artificial raspberry smell, so things are off to a good (but kind of foo-foo) start. Flavor is more raspberry with a blast of tartness and little other flavoring. This is simple raspberry, but good enough.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2002
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?

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
dnstone (2331) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Fresh rapsberry aroma. Pink-orange in color. Fresh raspberry flavor with a sourish (but not too much) finish, and not syrupy!
