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.

Draught (2005) Really enjoyed this. Toned down berry in flavor and aroma with hoppy undertones. Nice copper with a slight purple/redish tinge.

Nice covering up of the alcohol although I still found this beer to be a little to sweet and sugary, needed some sourness for balance. Pretty good and refreshing.

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.

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

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.

Bottle simply says "Berry Ale". Pours a soft amber with a mall layer of foam. Holy diacetyl, batman! Smells just like microwave popcorn! Taste has a faint tartness to it. Again, tons of diacetyl and light cranberry/gooseberry. Decent carb, thin body. Ouch ouch ouch!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7/14/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is raspberry bubble gum. Appearance is similar to a regular American amber with a low head. Flavor is a raspberry/sweet malt blend forward, slightly sour, with moderate bittering and no hop character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium/high carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this does keep some amber character, but itís just not easy drinking enough.
