3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Red with minimal head. Lightly tart with mild raspberry. Light on flavor but raspberry is often overdone. More on the subtle side.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?
