thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 14, 2005
This draft brew from the brewery poured a thin quickly diminishing head of finely sized bubbles that left behind a hazy reddish pink nbody with no visible carbonation. It had a strong raspberry aroma and a tingly palate with a strong raspberry flavor. The aroma was very nice to smell and the flavor was equally as profound. Very interesting brew.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Draft at FBC. Small tan head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, no visible carbonation, hazy, and a reddish pink hue. Nose was sweet, tart, and raspberry. Flavor was sweet, tart, sour and raspberry. Way, way too sweet for my taste. Sweet palate. Light body.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Draft at Founders. Raspberry color with moderate fuzzy raspberry color that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good tart raspberry and citrus aroma. Medium body with syrupy texture. Moderate sweet flavor with a long tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish. Another very good change of pace from Founders.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2005
On tap at Founders. Dark red body with a brownish tint, big light pink head. Tart raspberry and raspberry skin aroma. Bright, tart, crisp raspberry flavor, sweet and sugary with a nice bite, reminiscent of New Glarus Raspberry Tart but with a much higher ABV (and, hence, ethanol "kick"). Dense flavor profile; there’s no dearth of raspberries here. Very well-done, and it should be, as an 8-ounce tulip glass clocks in at $5.50!

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Called "Belgian Razz" on tap at Founders. Cloudy rhubarb color. The nose is sweet and candyish, very little raspberry in there. The body is dry with a very slight tartness. Small hint of raspberry, not much else.
