COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light ale made with 100% real raspberries in every batch. The rasberries give this beer a fruity aroma while keeping the beer balanced in taste. The raspberry flavor is not "oversweet" or "overpowering". We believe our beers should be "beer 1st,fruit 2nd".

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Dan. Pours a hazy golden orange with an average white head. Aroma of raspberry and grass. Taste is raspberries, malt, and grass. Decent.

Barley and cranberry nose. Cloudy amber, thin head. Medium body. Artificial raspberry, cardboard flavor. Every good brewey is allowed one lousy fruit beer. This is Dark Horse’s.

bottle, decent wheat beer, not heavily flavored raspberry taste. Light body, thin feel, heavily carbonated, overall not bad, not sure it falls in the fruit beer category.

Bottle. Pretty bad beer. Should you desire this style, good on you, but this is not a beer.

@ Party Town / Florence KY - Slight haze in a dark copper, persistent head cover, dots of lace. Taste is understated raspberry, but what’s left isn’t a malty brew, but rather a slightly sour, slightly bitter, burp-inducing, heavy beer. I believe the 4.5%, because there is no potency and very little taste, leaving me with an undesirable drink. This is the rare beer that I will not finish.

I like this one a lot. Strong raspberry aroma. Strong raspberry taste but not overwhelming. Still taste like beer. A fruit beer that doesn’t fall under the "girly" catagory.

Tap: cloudy copper & amber color with a very faint pink hue to it. Soapy, white head fizzles a bit & reduces to a thin skin in no time. Aroma is underpowered; very faint raspberry with light grain, a hint of metal, musk, & sadly, not much else. Taste is pretty vapid as well with mildly tart raspberry, light astringency, slight medicinal & chalky notes, light musky hops, & some grains. Not a big fan of this one... It’s drinkable, it just isn’t very good.

Picked it up at my local whiskey bar upon suggestion from my coworker. While the brew had a fairly fruity aroma, the taste was lacking any real hints of raspberry flavor. Yet, the base ale flavor was palatable and did not leave me looking for something to rinse my mouth out.
