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".

amber pour w/ a tall white head. Aroma of mostly raspberry jelly and some hints of vanilla. Palate is fairly thin but not bad. Flavor is fresh raspberries straigh off the vine and some light malts. Very light and easy to drink. Not bad.

there is really nothing special about this beer. Itís not a bad beer and is even better after a couple other beers. Whoo.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Pours to a really hazy amber body with a lasting frothy white head. The aroma is fresh raspberry preserves. Toasty grains, crackers and bread, with lots of fresh raspberry preserves. Tart and fizzy palate. Not "that" bad. Drinkable.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Disappointing. Pours dark amber with a thick white head. Faint notes of raspberry mingled with citrus, vanilla, malt, and floral. Medium body, slightly watery. The flavor was unremarkable. The promise of raspberry never quite fulfilled.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle, Dark amber color with a moderate canvas colored head. Light tart raspberry aroma with a sweet tart hint. Pale sweet malt mix with a dry raspberry sweetness (if that make any sense). But the dryness seems to be a near astringent component that linger far to long. Ok, a raspberry ale, yeah, there are some hint of raspberries, some hint so malt, but rather weak in both with nothing else to back things up. First, second, I think they missed both a bit.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Pours a flocculent amber with a fast, white, fizzy head that totally dissipates. Aroma of sour, raspberry Jell-O and vitamins... compressed B-12 or maybe Iron. Tart & dry with mild fizziness. Fruit flavor is relaxed but the cereal malt base and a touch of coffee-ground bitterness isnít enough to rely upon for a positive beer experience.

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- my bottle. Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a small diminishing white head. Nice, pleasant raspberry aroma -- not artificial at all. Watery flavour of sweet malt, raspberries, yeast, grain and faint hops. Light to medium bodied. I liked the aroma but was dissapointed with the watery thin flavour -- still, for a Fruit beer itís decent.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2006
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, Paulís bottle. Weird hazy rusty orange, small white head. Decent raspberry aroma - very mild though. Interesting taste at first: mild fruit and malt followed by a ton of fresh raspberry. Lots of fruit bitterness. Not quite sure what to make of this. Is there a beer in here or just fruit juice? Mild. Ok overall.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Poured a deep amber with a touch of pink. Sweet malty aroma with a very mild hint of rasberry. Nutty flavor with very little raspberry. Burnt grains on the finish. Very thin body. Iím dissapointed with this one. Thier IPAís and Tripel are some of my favorites.

Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboyís bottle . Murky pinkish-orange, no head. Light raspberry aroma, scorched wheat, touch of slightly sour white wine, grain. Sweet, vaguely raspberry taste, some sharp yeast character, weak pale lager body. Weak mouthfeel, almost flat, a little acidic, harsh aftertaste - not a good one of theirs, Iím afraid.
