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.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft sample at IBGWF 2013. Poured a clear reddish color with an average off-white fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart berry and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart berry flavor with a medium to heavy berry tart finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting beer.

Not overly sweet but still tons of raspberry flavor and some cereal notes in the finish. Very clean and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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..

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
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.

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.

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.

Bottle #437/495 batch K10357:   Heavy pinkish hue, a little dirty and hazy, moderate fizzy head, lively carbonation, little lacing.   Raspberry aroma, faint, not artificial yet not terribly strong.   Smells real, just not "in your face" like New Glarus.   A bit more flavor than aroma, which is nice.   Feels like a pale wheat background with the aformentioned Raspberries.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, a little spritzy.   Clean finish, soft Raspberries linger.   Not real bright, but not sour or tart.   Perhaps a little dry is all I would say.   Enjoyable, and very much reminds me of one of my summer favs as a youngster, Thomas Kemper Weizenberry.

Batch K10357, Bottle 187 ; Pour is murky gold with pink highlights ; the bottle popped, revealing a bit of over carbonation here. The white head with slight pink highlighting is average initial, retains on the modest side, and there is some light lacing present. The nose is raspberry jam, seeds, caramel malts really ; I thought this one came across as a really nice drinker, and one of the better fruit beers I had, in spite of the fact that the base beer is on the boring side. Raspberry comes through in a natural , non artificial way here, and this brew drinks clean and bright, with more raspberry jam, mild tart, medium sweet, caramel, bread, and light bitter - I enjoyed it.

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