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

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.

A nice fruit beer. Great pinkish red color with pink head. Great raspberry jam aromas. tart raspberry flavors. A touch watery... But still good.

jcos (1527) - Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Location/Date:Draft at Bell’s Beer Dinner @ RFD’s, January 10th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy red.
Aroma: Aroma is of pure raspberry..
Taste: Not as strong as aroma, some raspberry, a little bit tart..
Palate:Light champagney body with some fizz..

Summary: I wish the taste matched up to the aroma. Not a bad beer but not was the nose made me expect.

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

Tap @ AZWine. Pour is red with a slightly pink tinted white head. Aroma shows notes of raspberry jam on toast. Flavor is a little more refined with dry notes of tart raspberry and wheat.
