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 oz. Bottle: Pours a cloudy deep orange with plent of floaties, had a white head which diminishes slightly and holds very thin. Aromas was raspberries, sour, and yeast.wheat type funk. Flavor was overly watery, very light raspberries, and funk. Nice tingle on the tougue. Usually fruit beers feature the fruit of choice to much, and over do it presenting a syrupy sweetness. Dark Horse didnít show case the raspberries enough, and left them to hide behind other flavors. With a little tinkering they might have a good recipe.

Pours hazy golden/orange. Raspberry is very muted in both aroma and flavor. Little sourness in the finish and thatís it, not a lot going on here.

Bottle. Poured a light orange color with a little bit cloudiness. The aroma is light raspberries with some oranges. The taste is raspberries again. There are also notes of very light tobacco and and some flowers. Very well done. A fruit beer that isnít over the top, yet gets itís point across.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Bottle: Fruity, citrus, and rasberry aroma. Pours a cloudy dull orange with a white head. Citrusy with a funky raspberry and bitter finish. Rasberry seems a little off. Itís not tart or sweet like other raspberry ales.



Had this a second time and raspberry flavor was more like raspberries this time. Still a tad watered down, but much better than before.

cloudy lambic-esque appearance. light raspberry aroma and slightly wheaty and yeasty. my problem with this beer is that they tried so hard not to make it "fake raspberry" that they didnít make it much of anything at all.

Golden amber color, off white head. Fruity aroma, raspberry of course. Flavor is predominatly raspberry, kind of artificial tasting. Fizzy and light bodied. Not all that great.

Aroma is fantastic. Loads of raspberry fruitness. The color also harks well for this brew -- nice amber tending towards ruby tones. Solid raspberry flavors without the sourness of a lot of raspberry brews I have tried. Nice summer brew.

Hazy reddish amber body topped by a foamy white head. The aroma is full of apricots with some raspberry. The flavor is dry bready malt with subdues raspberry. None of the apricot detected in the aroma is present in the flavor. Not overly complex but pretty nice a drinkable. Medium dry body. Decent fruit beer. Not overdone or full of artifical fruit flavors.
