I really enjoyed this beer, but it almost got overwhelming the more I drank of it. Can definitely taste the raspberry in it, and it’s good for those who don’t drink a lot of beer, like myself. Like I said, very flavorful and sweet at first, not hoppy, and very smooth.

From bottle. Pours a hazy honey color with a small white head. Aroma of raspberry and fruits. Taste is mildly sweet, fruits, raspberries, some caramel. Medium mouthfeel.

While I respect the notion of letting the raspberry tones take a back seat to the ale, they seem downplayed to the point of being watered down. I’m okay with an ingredient being subtle but not when that ingredient is raspberry in a beer called Raspberry Ale. Aside from that, the dominant properties of the ale itself just doesn’t deliver a lot of flavor or aroma. It’s not a bad ale, but it’s an underwhelming brew that doesn’t live up to the Dark Horse standard.

Pours a hazy orange color. Aroma is tart raspberries. Taste is more wheat than raspberry, which only has very midl hints of it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Cloudy golden yellow-orange with dissipating off-white head. Aroma has some raspberry and yeast. Taste same with some biscuity malt. Light-medium body. Finishes a little bit dry. Raspberry flavour is fairly muted, balance is okay. Middle of the road as far as raspberry ales go in my opinion.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden brew. Smell is herbs and finnish raspberry licorice. Flavor has candied raspberries, herbs, savory flavor. Seriously there is a salty meat flavor that destroys this brew.
