2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the full sampler at Flossmoor Station. Poured with a reddish raspberry tinge that is intimidating (Similiar to the impending "Sweet Beer Doom" I’ve mentioned before). Slight head that sticks around. Aromas are vaguely of raspberries. Taste is much stronger than the nose would have led me to believe it would be. Tart raspberry taste tat finishes smooth and refreshing, albeit sweeter than I would have liked. Strong raspberry tartness.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had on tap at FS. Poured a light orange, with decent carbonation and a thin off-white head that disspated quickly and left little lacing. Strong dominant nose of super-tart raspberry and a mouthfeel and taste that followed suit. The finish tended to be overly sweet, as the tartness wore off.
A nice beer to try, but it wouldn’t be a regular for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the pub. Little pink/red hint to the body of the beer. You could definitely smell the raspberries. My girlfriend enjoyed it. I thought it was too sweet. Refreshing though and pretty decent for a fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the pub. Orangish pink, transparent body. Raspberry pie filling and honey-graham crust aroma; buttery, with cherry and vanilla sweetness to balance the seedy acerbic qualities of the raspberry predominance. Taste is satisyingly sweet and quite authentic in its fruitiness; not cloying or tightly wound, but generous and pleasant. Hints of cream candies, sweetbread and light lactose forms of sugar. Light bodied and very sparkly in the mouth; not heavily drying at the end but rather rich in doughy sweetness. Fulfilling and amiable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I gotta say that this one was a slightly bitter raspberry flavored brew, and was refreshing but strange. It was too bitter and tart to be a refreshing brew, but then again, it was unique and it begged me to drink it

Not my thing but better than some other fruit beers I’ve tried.
This is by far the best microbrew-pub reastauant brews I’ve had and food and service was excellent. Highly recommended.
