650ml bottle pours a light red amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving little to no lacing on the glass. Aroma is raspberries with notes of yeast and light malts. Taste is a raspberry tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness and a dry yeasty finish. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Just barely enough qualities to classify as a beer, but just makes the grade. Tasty and worth trying at least once.

Tap at Hathor. Pink-orange, hazy, with a fine, low head. Nose of raspberry and cream. A bit funky bitterness, raspberry, cream. Ok but a bit boring and for the weight, it doesn’t really deliver.

Taster at AEON Liquor. Tart raspberries with a gentle sour edge, floral notes, not too sweet but does have a kind of soda-like carbonation, fairly dry finish. Not the most impressive for the style but decent I guess.

Bottle that my parents picked up on the last weekend visit to Lewiston, neither of them really cared for this, but it’s still pretty cool they ventured out of their comfort zone a bit. Pours sort of a dirty ruby color, smaller beige head. Nose is raspberries and sort of musty, along with the Belgian yeast. Similar in the taste, the Belgian yeast and the raspberries come together in a musty, funky, barnyard sort of way. Both yeast and fruit are relatively strong in presence, but I’m not sure it really shines in any way. Decent, but in small doses.

Taste more like a soda than a beer, possibly fruit flavor sodas aren’t my thing. One is a treat, don’t think I’d enjoy another.

Aroma: sweet, raspberries. Appearance: reddish color and nice white head. Taste: sweetness and raspberries, which combines really well, malty. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: The best fruity beer I’ve ever tried. Drinkable and interesting.

22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 7/2/15. Release #29. 9.1% ABV.
The aroma is actually more yeast/spice then fruit. A little bit of oak. Some funky notes as well.
It pours a murky orange-reddish color with a beige head and drippy lace.
The raspberry comes through more in the taste, but it is still more of a spice, funk, yeast flavor.
The feel is decent. Soft carbonation. Tart, funky, and slightly dry on the finish.
I actually think this works pretty well. The fruit flavors after more subtle than I would have expected, but it still does the trick. Solid.

Very nice authentic raspberry aroma. Seems sweet in the aroma. Taste is not that sweet, very medicinal. Makes me think cough syrup. Dry finish, medicinal. Has some nice qualities but not for me. Very different beer, but too medicinal for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Brewers Haven. Raspberries up front, and throughout. At 9.8%, defeats the purpose of a radler. But delicious and refreshing , in spades.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a small bubbly off white head. The aroma has raspberries, wood, tart fruits, Belgian yeast, some sweetness with some acidity. The flavor is tart raspberries, acidic, wood, Belgian yeast, with some alcohol coming through. Dry on the finish. This did open up more as it warmed. OK.
