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?

sampled during the 2011 RBWG weekend on tap at AZWine pours pinkish red with a thin white head. This is fruity and effervescent without being overly sweet. Finishes dry with thin lingering berry notes.

Draft E-Day 05’. Brilliant red in color, minimal pinkish/white head. Decent raspberry aroma, seems extract like in a way though, kool aid? Flavor is all watered down raspberries. Easy drink, just really nothing going on though.

2005 Eccentric Day. Pours a bright red juicy color with a light off white head. Nose is raspberry juice. taste is fizzy, raspberry juice like, sugary.

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.

On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Opulent safire / red in color and semi-translucent with no head, save a tiny grey rung at the rim of the goblet. Aroma expunges sweet fruit libation - red raspberries, red currant and boysenberry syrup. Tart red raspberries and a cardboard box undercurrent maintain the flavor. A touch thin and separated, but frozen raspberries are the leading ladies. Mild touch of juicy pomegranate kernels. Airy freesia suggestions help to lightly titillate the palate, along with modest effervescence. Finishes with rose blossoms, raspberry seeds and dewed cotton. My wife f’in loved it.

festival tap: I admit that I walked to the front of the line to get this! Cloudy red with a huge raspberry and strawberry nose. Sour cherry flavor. One dimensional but refreshing. Real fruit flavor but I still think it has cherries in it as well.

On tap. I think that this was a wheat beer ? Light aroma and flavor. Fruit is its major taste .

reddish pinkish orange draft sampler...nice aroma of mild malt and lots and lots of raspberries. aromatic and fresh. the flavor is pretty much raspberry and mild malt rather like this one...but if you get the chance take 2/3 of the oarsman and 1/3 of the raspberry for a delicious mix..
