Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2007
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 it’s just not easy drinking enough.

Rouge/cuivre avec une petite mousse beige. L’arôme des framboise et du malt anglais. Le goût est un peu du malt anglais et de la framboise. C’est un peu sucré et épais en bouche.

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.

pours a red colour with a very sweet aroma and super sweet raspberry taste almost to sweet to enjoy

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Dark amber with a fair bit of reddish. Malty raspberry flavour with some hoppyness in there. Raspberry flavour isn’t overly strong and fits in there nicely with the other flavours. Was torn between giving it a 13 and a 14.

Slight rose tint in the glass. Raspberry on the nose. Light hops. Little head. Pleasant but not a full bodied fruit beer. A patio sipper for a hot day.

rogueminded (41) - Newport, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2005
A nice little maroon color with a fruity taste. Not all that I imagined. A little watery, but it is refreshing and I’m not saying its bad at all. It’s good, especially for 7%

Pours a brown colour with a hint of pink. It develops a lot of foam, but it quickly dissipates. The aroma is mostly of raspberries. It is medium bodied, but feels a little light on the carbonation. The taste is mostly of light malts, and some raspberry. The raspberry taste is closer to a syrup or jam-like flavour, and it lingers in the aftertaste.
