1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy red-amber color. Anonymous beer, with a bitterness from the fruits, no sweetness, no fruity notes (besides some aroma); quite overy bitter at the end, for a fruit beer. Not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with slight reddish hue. Strong raspberry aroma. Light body with hints of dark malt underneath a predominantly fruit-syrupy flavour. There is a slight malt chewiness in the finish that salvages things somewhat, but I’m not into it.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly reddish colour, perfectly clear with a faint pink head. Great sweet raspberry aroma. Flavour is also prominantly raspberry, with an acidic twang following the initial fruitiness. Bitterness seems to come mostly from raspberry seeds (i.e. not hop-like). Very interesting and quite refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright but dark red color and clear in the appearance. Rich and sweet raspberry nose, but still like a fruit juice or kool-aid than a well formed pure fruit scent. Too sweet and artificial tasting, simple overall, with a twangy spoiled vegetable note in the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2008-02-01. Bottle labeled Berry Ale. Dark amber body with a small off white head. Good amount of raspberry aroma is lightly tart with a perceived slightly artificial note to it. (6+) Sweet malt underlies a sweet tart raspberry flavour. Average palate. Alcohol is not noticeable. Pretty decent fruit beer but fairly plain overall.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours pink/amber with a light white head. Aroma of strong raspberries. Flavour is sour, alcoholic raspberries, with alcohol on the finish. Not my thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-orange. Natural mashed raspberry and cherry aroma. Generously malty backbone with a nice balanced natural fruit character-- juicy, and not candyish in any way. The booze is very well hidden in this. Really great actually!
