2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice small white head. Very true raspberry red color. Sweet raspberry whiffs. Great front taste, though sweet, raspberry full throttle from the onset. Just not super keen on the finish; it attempts to mellow the taste from being over sweet throughout and its just OK. Glad to have a bottle, but wouldn’t want more than a glass in a sitting.

Definite raspberry, a little sweet for me but it might be OK on a hot day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep red color. Big fruity flavor. Reminds me of a fresh raspberry jam. If you are looking for a beer with a bit of fruit on the finish, this isn’t for you. Incredibly refreshing, though. I’d drink again!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl., oz. bottle. The pour is mostly reddish-brown with a short-lived off-white head.
The aroma is alive with raspberry - the fresh stuff - not a juice. So in that regard it is excellent. But I am not a fan of this style. Still, the roasted malt character plays around underneath it all.
Light to medium body.
The raspberry fruit dominates the entire experience to the point that I feel like I am drinking a wine cooler. So that brings my rating down a bit. I don’t mind fruit beers but I still like the beer experience.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355mL bottle that pours a deep ruby red with a tinted red crown atop. It has a big jammy raspberry aroma that oozes from the glass into my nostrils like a clammy midnight fog. A massive sweet is apparent as soon as the it hints the tongue and then a burst of amazing berry flavours. I’ve never had a beer like it!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper orange with a white head. Aroma is very candy-like with raspberry candy, slight vanilla, some grainy notes and slight tart berries as well. The taste is kinda soda-like with with some sweet caramel malty notes, sweet candy raspberry and some grainy notes as well. I do not dig the balance in this.
