I feel like PsychProf. On tap Eccentric day 2003. rating 301. Nice tasting ale but I thought it tasted much more like cherries than it did like raspberries. Very tart and a lot of carbonation. Nice beer though. It smelled of raspberries and was a very nice drink. It poured with a nice white head and was extremely tart after testing the Eccentric Ale. Nice change of pace though.

On tap 7/13/09 at the Eccentric Cafe. Pours a darkish red with a white/pink head. Nose is a snoot full of fresh picked raspberries. Flavor follows suit, with a bit of sour and a nice tart to it. Excellent fruit beer.

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

Medium pinkish amber with little head at the Richond Gathering. Light raspberry aroma. Flavor is a match. Refreshing, dry, well done.

Bottle shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Bottle 83 of 495, batch K10357. Pours a clear pink color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart berries, earthy notes and dark caramel malts. The taste is earth, tart berries, caramel and stone fruits. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Had this as part of a beer dinner. Served in a small snifter type glass from tap. Nice slightly red color, no foam with a whitish ring. There may have been foam when it was poured but not when I received it. The smell is fresh raspberries and a little hops. The taste is almost the same. Tart fresh raspberries and maybe a bit of hops. Light palate with a good bit of carbonation. Overall this is good but more sour/tart than I prefer.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Reddish pour, big white head. Aroma smells like its going to be a sweet raspberry jam. Flavor isnt sweet at all, just a fresh raspberry flavor wihtout a sugary flavor.

Butters (3745) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the Richmond 17th Gathering.Clear pinkish pour with ring of white head. Good earthy tartness is balanced by the raspberry sweetness. Overall, a very nice clean light beer that showcases raspberries. Not overly tart, acidic, or sour. Just raspberry.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2004
A nice foray in the fruit beer category for Bell's -- although, with the Eccentric, they might have done that long ago. Nice haziness and some amber over tones. Vibrant tartness (agree with others that the flavor did often come off as "cherry"). This beer would be wonderful in the summer, but was a little like a fish out of water in the middle of winter.

eccentric day 2004 draft. gorgeous ruby, thin white-pink head. smells like the last raspberry of the season, just picked off the vine--dry as hell, literally vaporizes on your tongue. just like licking a raspberry, leaves your tongue feeling exactly like you had just rubbed a raspberry on it. there is alcohol in this??
