3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pretty deep red color with a small but well retained head. The aroma has a lot of nice earthy and sweet raspberry notes and some very mild yeastiness. The flavor is nicely tart with loads of fresh raspberry flavor and a light sourness and only a mild sweetness. As it warms it gets grainy and yeasty and flavors just sort of muddle up a bit making it less exciting as say the first half of the pint.
A pretty nice Raspberry beer, loads more interesting than the typical "Raspberry Wheat" but something entirely different than say Raspberry Tart.

Tap. Red with minimal head. Lightly tart with mild raspberry. Light on flavor but raspberry is often overdone. More on the subtle side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bells (Eccentric Cafe). Red body, thin off-white head. Light aroma of raspberry syrup, the subtlety likely due to the cold temperature this was served at. Raspberry syrup flavor, sweet but not overtly so, and a bit tart, with light bready malts and earthy hops becoming especially apparent in the aftertaste. Medium-bodied. A better-than-average Raspberry Ale though nothing unique.

Draft at Eccentric Cafe 10-11-08, listed as 5% alc. on the board, pours a very clear bright dark red and ruby, gave a white head that diminished quickly, raspberry aroma without any sweetness and not much else on the nose, flavor is straight raspberry that is pretty tart on the tongue, I could not taste any malt, this is a dominant raspberry beer with very little sweetness, has a medium mouth feel and not much carbonation, I was not really impressed with this drink, it is not bad and I could not find any off fragrance or taste but is was boring towards the end of the glass.

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.

Cloudy red body. The aroma is clean raspberry. Tastewise, the front half is great raspberry, but it gets lost in the back half, leaving you with only half a beer.

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

Cloudy deep red with a thin white head. Nose has lots of the raspberry with a jammy character. The taste is more dry than expected with a fruity iron finish. Lots of jam. There is some light yeast. Interesting anyway.
