1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, pink, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium pinkish-amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with notes of raspberry, rotting vegetation / compost, rubber/plastic, solvent, metal.
Flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is trace sweetness, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Eddyline is one of the fastest rising stars in the competition for worst Colorado brewery. With more entries like this and Boater Beer, I am hopeful and optimistic they will take home the gold medal. Truly horrific nose of heavily diluted raspberry juice (yes, not even the fruit aroma is any good!) and a cornucopia of industrial off notes. Very unbalanced and stark in the mouth, with a profoundly dirty aftertaste. It truly takes skills to ruin a beer this badly.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz. can. 5% ABV per the label Pours a minimal, white head, over a clear light amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is light raspberry, mild wheat.....taste is light raspberry, wheat, finishing with a bitter spice bite.....mouth feel very light, almost watery, lightly astringent, carbonation high. This is a very light, uncomplicated beer. The bitter bite on the finish lingers and is quite unpleasant. BJCP 5/3/9/4/5

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can pours a pink/red with a big white head. Very lively carbonation. Initial hit of hard boiled egg, followed by a very light raspberry on the nose. A little overpowered by the sulfur. Raspberry sparkling water? It tastes fine, but this has absolutely no body to it. On a positive note, itís damn refreshing.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tap @ Socorro Springs. Pours a clear light pink appearance with a white head. It looks like a fucking wine cooler. Artificial raspberry italian soda aroma. A touch tart, very watery, raspberry, dull herbal flavor. Nothing going on here.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy pink like grapefruit juice. Fresh juicy aroma. Sweet taste, with bitterness to balance, and lots of fresh fruit character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Cloudy, the color of strawberry jam. Super heavy on the fruit aroma. Too much like sodapop, but at least seems like natural or craft soda. Soft palate. But itís really too soda-like with not enough beer character except for a smack of sweet wheat malts at the finish. Not bad, just not my thing.

Tap. Pours hazy and lightly cloudy raspberry-colored with a medium, fizzy, light pink head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is medium grain malt, huge raspberry with faint hops and yeast. Flavor is light malt with loads of lightly tart raspberry, no hop bitterness, and a creamy palate. Medium-light bodied, medium carbonation.
