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".

Wheat based ale with a seeming over-abundance of raspberry fruitiness. Somewhat artificial in flavor, but way too sweet in any event. Wheat-based fruit beer with a light agreeable texture, but just canít overcome the cloying sweetness.

Thanks SuIIy!!! Pours a clear golden/orange color with a small head and just a little bit of lacing. Aroma is fruity and very heavy with raspberries. The flavor reminds me of dried raspberries (or what I invision dried raspberries tasting like) with a slight hint of malt coming through at the end. The beer is light on the palate and while enjoyable, there is no way I could drink more than one in a sitting, to sweet/fake fruitish for me.

Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. Itís sweet, full of raspberry with a touch of malt...reminds me of raspberry Kool-aid. Light bodied and dry.

hopdog (9940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with Sully(thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of mainly tart raspberries. Tastes on the softer side with some raspberries, oranges, and maybe even some sweet caramel in there. Iíve said it before, raspberries are one of my favorite for fruit beers but I found the tastes to be a big let down compared to the nice raspberry aromas. Ligther body with some lacing left on the glass.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 Amber color with a slight raspberry lemonade-type tint to it. Aroma is not that great. Raspberries are there, but surrounded by a bit of a bitter/sour aroma that Iím not sure about. Given my hestitations with the scents, the flavor isnít that bad. Not perfect, but the raspberries donít kill it, there is no horrendous sour flavors, etc. The aftertaste is decidedly sour and probably a low note. The raspberry adds a complexity that the beer really needs... without it it would be totally unremarkable. With the berries it is tollerable, but still a little lackluster.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with Sully, thanks Mike!) This is seemingly another run of the mill raspberry beer that comes across as having fake, artificial raspberry flavor. The fruit is more muted in this raspberry beer than most others. Itís lightly sweet with a moderate tartness and a pale malt base thatís barely perceptible. The moderately sweet nose seems more authentically raspberry than the flavor, and itís strong enough to push aside whatever aromas the malt might have. Light-medium bodied. Medium-dark amber and fairly hazy, there are no carbonation bubbles rising through the beer to help keep the head alive. The off-white head needed assistance because it poured small and very fizzy, and by now, all that is left are a few small bubbles along the edge of the glass. One of those "tried it, itís okay, next please" fruit beers.

Fearless99 (14) - Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Bottle, orange-yellow in color, cloudy, very little white head. Noticeable raspberry aroma, although raspberry flavor was not too strong. Tasted some malt, a touch of tart, and a touch of bitter hops. I expected a little more raspberry flavor to come through besides the aroma

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2005
courtesy of SuIIy. Pours a very cloudy amber/brown body with a whitish head. Medium rasberry aroma. Flavors are mostly rasberries and a little malt with a tart finish. Defiately a summer beer.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Pours a reddish gold color with very little head that leaves a very small ring, and thereís almost no lacing. Smell; mild raspberries, a little orange peel in there with only a tiny bit of a hop presence. Taste; tart raspberries are there, but theyíre mild and not overwhelming, a bit of oranges, and just a touch of hops in the finish. Itís a fairly light and refreshing beer that I think would have been much better during the summer.
