On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served showing a slightly hazed, copper color, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam, and doily-like cling to the ribbons of lacing. The nose was expressive fruitiness of raspberry puree, tartness, and a promise of substantial alcohol to come. Medium+ bodied, the taste projected the fruit with more of a sweet, candy-like nature, sticky & syrupy texture, strong but not hot booziness, and a moderate astringency & tartness that combined nicely with some lively carbonation. Although not a big Fruit Beer fan, this didnít get tedious to me, and I appreciated the freshness of the fruit along with the unusually strong alcohol kick.

Smell is medicinal. Taste is a touch on the strong side, but bearably so. Tried it on draft in 5oz pour and I'm not mad about it. For beer heads only. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

Pours an almost reddish yellow with specks and a very thin head. Aroma is raspberry. Flavor is raspberry. Body is very thick and syrupy. Itís amazing a beer this strong hides the alcohol so well. This is good, but not something that stays good for a whole beer, or even half a beer. Gets almost cough syrup-like as it warms up. Nonetheless, pretty impressive.

Bottle from Beer and Wine. Nice light amber body with puffy white head. Nose is floral of berries and of burned sugar. Taste is fruity of raspberries of course and even slightly chocolate with a serious kick of alcohol. Pretty enjoyable stuff.

Innovative and pretty daunting. Lots of raspberry aroma and flavor, but with a ton of malt and alcohol thrown in. Something to be tried, but Iíd recommend splitting the bottle.

Poured a slightly reddish color with no head. Aroma had lots of raspberries, cherry, and booze. Very sweet too. Taste is thick and syrupy with a good amount of booze and fruit. More raspberry flavor with a slight alcohol stinging on the way down. Overall it is definitely interesting, but a little hard to drink after a while.

On tap at funks. Very sweet with raspberry tartness and a hard bite in the finish. Doesn't linger. Strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of raspberries which is promising, taste is awful. Where to begin. Raspberries and then a punch of yeast then alcohol. Lots of alcohol. May be the strongest fruit beer- beware; not good.
