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.

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.

Smelled and looked great...didn’t have much taste. Body was very thin and overcarbonated. Would be good at brunch, I guess. Strong smelling seltzer with little flavor.

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.

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.

Damn Michael, I did see the Texan alien pair - what the heck were you wearing? I grant you the run of your imagination on this brew - there are some citrus and ester stirrings in the deep swirls, but they are subdued by the too razbry.

On tap at AZ Wine RBWG. Pours a bright red color with a small white head. A sweet berry nose, a fizzy light palate. The flavor is a light easygoing Raspberry, toasted malts. Decent.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sample at Fourth Street Bar & Grill during the Bells Tap Takeover on 10/12/2011: Slightly cloudy red color with a minimal white head. Spotty lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and raspberry in the nose. Medium body with a mildly tart raspberry character and some sweet grainy malt behind it. The finish is short and fruity. Pretty average overall.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2007
On tap. Pours a ruby red color with a smallish pink colored head. Aroma is pretty much raspberries. Flavor is pretty much raspberries. Palate is light bodied, medium to high carbonation, finishes tart. Not much to say here, this is a panty dropper beer.

Very dry raspberry flavor. Not a sweet beer, but very recognizably raspberry, though with a bitter finish to it. Not my favorite fruit beer, but worth a try.
