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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bubbly, cloudy, yellow-gold with a tall, white head.
Scent is raspberry, wheat.
Taste is wine-cooler raspberry...
The claim is that this is more "beery" than fruity...mmm...not really.
Pretty typical for flavouring...weak, bland.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The one thing I canít say anything about is the appearance ... I had this straight from the bottle at Green Dot Stables in Detroit. If you havenít heard of GDS and live in the area, I URGE you to check the place out. Seriously. Asap.
Anyway, the smell of this beer is much like youíd expect. Or maybe not. Itís an ale with some spillings of raspberry in there. But unlike some beers that overwhelm you with the fruit, Dark Horse does it right, and gives you that hop/malt/BEER smell as well.
Taste/feel: Unfortunately I didnít get to completely enjoy my beer because my friends were pushing me out the door to the casino, but I got a few sips in where I could think if I liked it or not... and I do. Iím not sure what it is, but this beer just doesnít blow me away like I thought it might. Sure, you get the raspberries, but I couldnít help but feel "meh" about it. Itís still a very drinkable beer super appropriate for Spring or Summer though, and Iíd try another.

Not much raspberry aroma or taste here. Slightly carbonated. Wheat taste, slight fruit aftertaste. Pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a semi-cloudy copper color with a slight beige head. The scent is mostly wheat with some hints raspberries. The taste has more raspberry flavor to it than you would expect from the color and aroma. There is a rush of sweet raspberry flavor that then turns into a strong wheat flavor before finishing kind of dry and chalky. This is a slight step up from Shocktop Raspberry but still has plenty of room for improvement.
