3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Verbatim from notes 16JUL11
Raspberry Ale: Cherry pine ale with no head, no lace, brilliant clarity. Smells of sweet raspberry, natural. Hunts of biscuity malt. Raspberry is a little subdued compared to say, NGís offerings, but I think this is not bad. Sweet bready malts hang out iwth the sapberry and have just a touch of sourness. Medium bodi with low carb. Dry finish. Would like a lot more carb. Overall, Not bad, the carb (lack thereof) takes a lot away from the overall impression of this beer.
Serving type: on-tap

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Raspberry and light malts, a bit jammy. Light clear amber with a thin head. Malty raspberries, again tastes like jam as it smells. Not bad, but just not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured a clear reddish color with an average off-white fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart berry and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium berry flavor with a medium berry finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Swans in Victoria. Aroma and flavor of raspberry fruit beer. Very clean and crisp for the hottest days in BC (80s...come on). Still, a very refreshing and good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decently done for style - in the sense that it meets the average standards of a fruit beer. Tastes a bit sour like raspberry but who cares really. Pours reddish clear. Finishes a little sour. On tap at brewpub - thankfully my odyssey here is over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty nice drink! Deep red from the pub, minimal head. Aroma is brisk raspberries. Taste is mostly about the raspberries, which are delicious and taste real. Not syrupy like these beers can be - the raspberries here are about the sour. Enough of a beer background to give it depth and bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with about 2 fingers of white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by raspberry. Taste is raspberry with some underlying malt sweetness and a trace of hops with a dry tart finish. A pretty nice fruit beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet fruity syrup berry nose on top of a stronger blonde beer base. Pours amberish with some red tints. Berry sweetness, strong blonde wheat beer base. Lingering sweet berry notes. Perhaps a little too much berry sweetness for my liking, but I do like fruit beers so.....

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a very nice ruby-red body and a good pillow of antique white head. The aroma is all kriek-style fruity syrup, not in the league of Cantillon but more in the league of Lindemanís.... so what did I give a Lindemanís Kriek? Oh, probably a six. Iíll assume itís a six for aroma. The flavour is an odd mix of berry flavours that are muted by some odd cloying detergent crap that is just totally dragging the experience down, man. Somethinís just off in this one, and itís a shame - I was hoping to experience at least a British Columbian version of a mass-produced Belgian Kriek, but instead got a fruity mess that is just all over the place. Iíll still finish my 650ml bottle, though.
