UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Very good - Its no RUBEAUS (Founders) but very tasty nonetheless. Just enought Rasberry to make it fruity, but has a strong malty beer taste as well. Very refreshing

22 pz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a thin off-white head that disappeared before the glass was half empty. Very nice aroma of raspberries. The flavor was raspberries nicely balanced with some caramel. The raspberries were not overpowering as in some other fruit beers and definitely tasted like real fruit. Some hops bitterness at the finish. The alcohol was very well hidden as there was no bite to speak of. Overall very nice.

Bottle. Pours a dingy, lighter raisin color with a thin head. Nose is dried raisins, but a little off. The raspberry flavor is not fresh, but seems to continue with the dried fruit theme. Not enought sweetness, but a tad tart actually. I was expecting more of a robust raspberry flavor, but rather it was muted, dry and overall fair at best.

bomber via trade, with someone fairly recently and yet I cannot remember who, maybe jjpm74. Pours Orange with a 4 giner pale white head that is slighlty pink. The nose is very raspberry but nothing like raspberry tart. The taste is off, sweet and tart and sour and a bit strange. Iíll see how I feel about it before putting in my actual numerical rating. It grows on you, not as good as some but decent.

Pours a dark reddish color with tan head. Nice lacing. Has huge dry taste of raspberrys. Has hints of chocolate after raspberry taste. Then finishes with a sour tart kick on the tongue. Thanks again dragonstout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange with Red Hue and White Skin. Raspberry Aroma...Medium Mouthfeel and Syrapy Body. Strong Raspberry Flavor Througout...The Fruit Comes Out Enjoyable but Borderlines Artificial...Itís Carried Well by the Body and Alcohol This Brew Has...Sweet Tart...Lightly Bittered Ending. For a Fruit Beer, Quite Enjoyable...And Makes Me Ponder That Perhaps it Could be Improved by a Bigger Bodied Beer to go Alongside the Fruit.

Cloudy orangish brown with a fairly large head, good lacing. Aroma is sweet raspberries and not much else... some sweet malts. Sweet mouthfeel and body, minor tartness. Sweet finish with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Simple and straightforward but it gets the job done.
