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.

The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl - Great Fruit aroma and flavor. This was a very good fruit beer.

tap at the brewpub - Pours dark reddish-amber with a thin head and a strong raspberry aroma. The flavor is fairly light and led by sweet raspberry with some caramel maltiness alongside in a slightly too thin body. The finish has some mild alcohol flavor. Not bad.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2011
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.....

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 (Draught) 2003 Silver Medallist @ CDN Brewing Awards. Thin, white head with a mohogany body. Slight jammy nose but good alcohol tone to cover the aroma. Flavour is sweet, tart with a decent ABV. I see no reason to mark this beer less than GOOD!

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2005
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.

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.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
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.

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.
