On tap at bier thirty pours out a rusty pink topped with a light pink head. Aroma of berries, yeast, and some sweetness. Taste more of the berries, belg yeast, little bitter, and dry. Over all so so.

AirForceHops (5263) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2016
22 oz. bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer. Release number 5. Amber color with a pink hue. Aroma is huge raspberry! Big bold even with the amount of time this bottle has sat in Brianís basement, awesome.

Flavor does well to showcase the raspberries. Carbonation is nice and mild yet still has a light tingle. At over 9% ABV and doesnít show any notes of alcohol, would have guessed it was a 6 or 7 percent brew. The Belgian yeast has a nice presence, really enjoyed this.

Bottle from trade. Release 5. Aroma is strong raspberry, alcohol. Flavor is honey, multigrain bread, raspberry. A hint of clove in the finish.

DCLawyer (2313) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Backlog. Draft taster at Iron Horse in DC. Dark pink with bare head. Yeast and watery raspberry. Tart, but not pleasantly so. Unpleasant.

andrewje41 (2036) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Draft 12 Oz pour at the collective, as part of their Epic brewers night. Iíve never really been into this series, but this one didnít offend me at all. Fresh red raspberry aroma. Flavor is sweet raspberry and cherry. Slightly medicinal in the finish, but not as much as the others in the series. High fruit finish. Pretty good.

Ferris (9776) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle - Nice sweet and a bit jammy raspberry. Pinkish orange with a decent white head. Sweet raspberry and light jammy qualities. Not bad.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a dark ruby red/golden copper color with bright cherry edges and a one finger, pinkish head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Sweet, syrupy aroma with a really strong jammy raspberry presence. Slightly medicinal and artifical smelling but there is a ton of raspberry and sweet malt. Not much else to say about the nose, just purťed raspberry syrup. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a sweet, tart raspberry presence dominating the flavor. Kind of reminds me of a lesser version of a New Glarus fruit beer. Not as sweet, syrupy or medicinal as he nose suggests with a nice puckering raspberry jam character countering the artifical/syrupy flavor. I was expecting it to be much more cloyingly sweet but itís decently balanced with tartness and subtle malt undertones. The high ABV is excellently masked without a trace of heat. Still, itís a novelty dessert beer thatís tough to drink in quantity.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle, shared with my brother in law. Dark purplish-red, pink head. Jammy raspberry fruit, light phenols, dry finish. I liked this a lot more than the cherry version.

gringo332 (583) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Pours a a clear ruby color with a very thin white head. Subtle, fruity aroma with some crisp maltiness. Strong, raspberry taste with a sweet kick finish. Goes down nice. Really good fruit beer

UXO (1126) - CANADA - OCT 29, 2015
Appearance: clear ruby red, one finger of fine white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tart raspberries, pale malt, vinous, light floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate tart, mild bitter. (7/10) Light body, lively carbonation, crisp tart finish. (3/5) Not without its charms, but very much raspberry dominant. Thereís a little musty vinous on the nose and towards the end, but for the most part, this is all about raspberry tartness. Which isnít a criticism, by any means, but itís definitely a much simpler experience than e.g. a Cantillon Rosť de Gambrinus. On the other hand, it gives precisely zero indications that itís almost 10%ABV, so you could give it to the kids and claim itís raspberry soda, if you wanted a night of peace and quiet... (Disclaimer: Iím not advocating drugging your children. I havenít gotten to that point. Yet.) (14/20)

pintbypint (3149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
650ml brown bottle, release #38. Pours out pink-orange, hazy. Thin pink tinged head. with some strudy lace rings. Sweet and tart raspberry aroma with lemony undertones. Taste has tart raspberry notes, a little musty and winey. A little alcohol at the end, pretty dry. Rather enjoyable, I think this would be even better in the summertime.
