Picked this up at the COOP last night ... Poured now into my HotD goblet... nice foamy half-inch white head.. the brew is slightly hazy golden. The nose shows pretty big berry essence.. but it seems sorta artificial.. almost "TOO" clean if "that" can actually be a bitch... light pale malts push the fruits and actually magnify it... but again, it just doesn’t seem real with the aroma. Flavor is dead on expected... nice fruity profile that jives with the lower ABV... pale maltiness is there only to deliver the fruit... not much else to report... decent/good beer that I would never pass off. Body is spritzy medium... nice, but not for me.... I though think this will be a big winner with the "Non-Geeks"... How do you get the word out there???

From a can. Pour a hazy gold with a thick off white head and lots of floaty bits. Aroma of raspberries and toast. Flavors same. Good carbonation. Crisp finish.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Crooked Fence Barrelhouse, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of floral raspberries and some light pith. Flavour is along the same lines, with feint raspberries and perfumey floral notes. Simple and easy to drink but forgettable.

Travlr (21403) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2016
Can courtesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Hazy golden color, fine bubble white head with good retention and solid lacing. Big dusty, earthy raspberry aroma. Taste has white pepper, earthy fruit, dusty straw, dry finish. Decent.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Very hazy, dark straw colored liquid. Smaller white head. Pale grains and malt aromas, with a bit of fruit. Not really catching raspberries, more a general light fruity sweetness. Sweet from the start. Again, sweet grains and fruit. This time the raspberry is more pronounced; not overflowing but recognizable. Rather bitter finish and linger.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2015
12oz can. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Big, steady, foamy, off-white head. Pretty solid raspberry aroma. The hops dry it out some, which isn’t really a bonus, but give it a little more depth perhaps. Pretty decent for the style. Respectable offering.

Sledutah (7013) - Utah, USA - APR 2, 2015
12oz can picked up at Bier:Thirty
Pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, cereal and doughy. The taste is raspberries, grainy, herbal and bitter lemon
I didn’t enjoy this one, strange beer.

jake65 (3445) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2014
12 oz can. Smells grassy and floral, sort of dusty. No fruit to speak of. The taste is a stale grassy metallic thing with a really weak artificial raspberry kick. Ugh. Maybe this sat in the fridge to long. Not good.

On draught at b˛ Taphouse. Light clear golden color. Aroma is fresh raspberry jam. Taste is also raspberry, but with more grain and a bitter grass note. Clean finish with a touch of bitterness.

The only beer from CF I can even drink a pint of. Fairly balanced, drinkable… Too bad they have chosen to go with the whole girl/sex/female objectification thing on the label. I won’t buy it just for that.
