Tap at Founders. Raspberry Aroma. Bright red color with a small light red head. I like the sweet raspberry taste. Your mouth would just beg for more. I canít believe this beer isnít rated any higher.

Pours a hazy ruby red raspberry color with a nice pinkish head. Aroma is of amazing tart raspberries. Flavor is a very nice tart raspberry flavor but with a nice sweet finish but not syrupy or extract tasting at all. Alcohol content is also hidden extremely well in this one. Excellent.

22oz bottle. Color of razzberry juice. Ruby red and juicy. Aroma of fresh pressed razzberries. Flavor is nothing but tart juicy fruit. Lots of alcohol which is all very hidden. Beer drinkers and non drinkers would definately mistake this for juice. could be the best fruit beer Iíve tasted. Its just too easy to enjoy!

Shared at Diegoís place. Excellent raspberry flavor throughout, light tartness, not an overbearing sweetness. Ideal for this sort of beer.

Draft at Caponeís. Ruby magentaish pour with smallish light pink head that faded away quickly. The aroma was great, a very intense freshly picked raspberry aroma that was natural and not at all Jolly Rancherish. The palate was pretty hefty, somewhat sticky, with tons of raspberry flavor, plus a dollop of earthy yeasty hints. This one stayed pretty tart throughout, seeming to get a little sweeter toward the finish, definitelt sweeter than Sly Fox Black Raspberry. Iíd really love to side-by-side this with NG Tart and the Sly Fox Black Raspberry. This one was outstanding.

Poured ruby red with a fluffy pinkish head. Strong aroma of raspberries. Tons of raspberry flavor. This canít be over 12%. Well made!

Bottle from Caponeís and shared with Axilla. Great red color with soda like fizzy head that quickly went away. Raspberries came in strong and perfectly tart. Itís amazing this one can hide the alcohol so well. The price tag was high, but this is one Iím very glad I tried and wouldnít hesitate to buy it again. Super.

bottle thanks to ford9719. poured a dark cherry red. smells and tastes like raspberries. has more of a wine taste than a beer taste.

Bertrand (7) - Grand Rapids / Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2008 does not count
absolutely love this beer...picked up 650ml bottle in Grand Rapids (not Founders)...tastes like amazing raspberry champagne...hides 12.3% well...true raspberry flavor, just enough sour and bitter, not like raspberry candy...I could drink this everyday...paid $14 in GR, saw it for $16 at Binnyís in Chicago

This is wonderful! Slightly sour, amazing smell of FRESH raspberry. Def worth a try, also hides the 12.3 very well.
