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.

A: The beer pours a bright reddish color with a white head that maybe has a hint of pink.
S: Smells like raspberries. Apart from those, there is a lot of grass and a light grain scent, perhaps some corn, too. A decent amount of wet straw, in there as well.
T: The taste is a bit like raspberry seltzer water. Very highly carbonated with a decent amount of sweet raspberry. It is a touch watery and like the aroma, is heavy on the grain, straw, and grass.
M: Somewhat light in body with a very high level of carbonation.
O: Disappointing. The fruit flavor is pretty decent, but the base beer is just not good and detracts from the overall experience.

Glass at the Bell’s tap takeover at 4th Street Patio on 10/12/11. Reddish pour with a thin white head. Aroma is authentic raspberry (a little feety) with some fruity tartness. Raspberry and grainy malt flavor with a slightly tart finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weird looking beer with a unfiltered faded red hue and a small fizzy pink head which produced good lace. Aroma is raspberry, earthy yeast and toasted malt. Taste is very tart initially bit mellows out to a smooth mild ale finish. A bit too one-diminsional. Thin-bodied and watery. As the woman next to said "a chick beer".

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Draft, at the Eccentric. Don’t know why I kept trying all the raspberry beers as I pubcrawl across Michigan, but here’s another. Opaque pink color looks like one of those candles in a wine glass. A more tart finish than other Raspberry beers, and a little less of a “wine cooler” taste... but not much less. Some malt works its way through, as well.

It is hazy pink and is very watery and slightly sour. It was super popular the day I was at Bell’s but I have had better Raspberry ales.
