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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle 148 of 495 thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a fluffy off-white head with a lightly hazed red body. Aroma of raspberry, sticky, sweet, a bit of wheat, seltzer. Flavors are extremely watery. Seltzer, wheat, raspberry and little else. Pretty clean too, no esters. A bit of a malic bite. Lively bubbles, dryish. A bit bland. Really seems like little more than raspberry and seltzer. Drinkable though.

Smelled and looked great...didnít have much taste. Body was very thin and overcarbonated. Would be good at brunch, I guess. Strong smelling seltzer with little flavor.

750 ml bottle. Pours a brilliant, clear red color, promising a lot of raspberry taste. It has a nice complimentary white ring of head. Aroma is definatly of raspberry, with a disconcerting sour note. A sweeter taste is expected (similar to a lambic) but there is little of it. Some sweetness would have brought out the raspberry.

Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks good for the style; a transparent reddish-orange with white lacing. Smells of raspberries and wheat. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

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.

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.

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