2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a tiny pink head over a copperish amber body. The nose is sweet with candy and raspberries. Flavors include more raspberries, subtle cherry, and Jolly Ranchers. The mouthfeel is tart, soft, and slightly sour. Unusually thin carbonation for the style. Thin body. A decent fruit beer; there are plenty of others that I prefer over this.

[my 700th Belgian rating!]
[... and my 100th Fruit beer, the 11th style to reach a century]
Pours muddy, deep red with a small, frothy, pink film head. Aroma is pure raspberries, a bit sweetish. Light mouthfeel that has a grainy edge to it. Flavour is soft, very light tartness, but with a good dose of quite natural berries. Okay beer, actually.

Crazy aroma, I could smell this beer from across the table. Heavy on the raspberry aroma. Pours a light gold color with a thin head. Flavor is very sweet, but I like Lindemanns better.

This beer really isn’t that complex or hard to describe, it’s just a nice, refreshing raspberry fruit beer, with a nice bit of tartness to it. I’m partial to fruit beers though, but I thought it was pretty tasty, a good summer beer.

Pours very murky amber with a tan / pink sudsy head. The aroma has lots & lots of raspberries ~ very rich and thick. You can almost smell the seeds. Medium crisp body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts like the aroma with spicy pepperiness. The finish is clean refreshing and nice. While this isn’t the most complex beer, it is very enjoyable on a summer day.

Pours a purplish orange with a fizzy white froth and large soda bubbles. Really strong sweet raspberry juice aroma. Holy cow! Huge fresh squeezed raspberry juice flavor! Drinks like juice... is it juice? Good luck detecting any of that 3.7%, keep it away from children. Like a raspberry candy, super sweet, tart. I can’t rate this as a beer really... but a panty dropper! [up the alcohol and we’re in business]

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big tarty berry coulis aroma. Deep reddy brown colour, somewhat cloudy with a small head that dissipated quickly. Strong tart flavour of raspberries…however the taste is somewhat artificial and with an overpowering sweetness. Almost like it has been flavoured with cordial. Very bubbly mouthfeel with a cloying berry aftertaste. My mouth feels horrible after finishing the bottle. A disappointing beer.

Pinkish red with a medium pink head. Aroma and taste both of raspberries. Tart finish, lightly spiced. A decent beer for what it is.
