TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours red with a lasting light head. Real nice aroma of raspberries and cream, some wheat. Nice is nice and refreshing, raspberry taste is pretty prominent rather than a subtle accent.

Rating #2106 2015.10.08 - Bottle at @7degrees Beer School. Pours a deep ruby Aroma is strong raspberry. Taste is more of the same, sweet berry juicyness, light tartness. Palate is heavy with sweetness, alcohol provides a little depth.

Draft at the brewpub. Clear reddish amber with minimal head. Aroma is raspberry, cough syrup, corn syrup, Belgian yeast. Sweet, fruity, medicinal flavor. Ok. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Meh.

Sweet, fruity, booze hidden. Solid but slightly cloying with the raspberry power! At brewery over summer.

22oz bottle. Poured an amber with a ruby tint and an averaged sized head. Raspberries, fruity, and candy. Alcohol hidden. Had this a a BYOB on vacation, so extra points there ...

FROTHINGSLOSH (6717) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Sampled on draft at Hough’s this beer poured a hazy red color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tangy with a hint of vinegar and faint berries. The flavor was tartish and a bit jammy with vague berry, cardboard and a bit of artificial sugar. Medium length berry and jam finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

LinusStick (3234) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Meh. I’m a sucker for fruit beers (especially raspberry) but this was a dud. Aroma was nice. Good raspberry and fruit aromas with a hint of yeast. Pour was a beautiful dark red with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was very thin and alcoholic. More alcohol than raspberry flavor. Artificial cough syrup and sweetness with mild carbonation. Was expecting more

A 22 fl. oz. bottle, Release #33, brewed on 3rd November 2014 and packaged on 19th November 2014. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a cloudy pinkish red orange colour (like pink guava juice) with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse lacing. Aromas are fruity raspberry juice and strawberry jam. Tastes sweet and lightly tart raspberry and strawberry jam flavours with a good amount of alcohol bite that’s not overpowering. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It’s a good beer that has a nice alcohol bite and while its not overpowering, I do prefer fruit beers to be a bit lighter though and hence Epic Lil’ Brainless Raspberries was slightly better in my opinion.

cmacklin (848) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear red with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet, fruity aroma of raspberries with a hint of tartness. Sweet flavour of raspberries, Belgian yeast and wheat malt with a dry, tart, slightly acidic, boozy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice fruit beer.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bomber from Capones and Whole Foods PM. Pours chill hazy ruby/copper with off-white head. Nose is huge raspberries, some malt. Smells like a handful of orchard-picked raspberries. Tastes fruity, with big raspberry notes, some malt, hops, smooth finish. Amazingly well hidden alcohol.

bhensonb (14075) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2016
Bomber from Malt and Vine. Pours translucent pinkish gold with a whiteish head. Raspberry aroma. Med body or so. Flavor is raspberry, but there’s a "strange" alternate flavor as well. Maybe it’s Belgian yeast doing something. It is fairly dry, even getting a bit astringent. Certainly drinkable, but it’s not as pleasing as I hoped.
