4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A really nice rasperry color andflavor without being to sweet/syrupy. The is a great summer or "gateway" beer. It has a bit of an orange-rine bitterness at the end. Overall a very enjoyable fruit beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a hugely pretty brown colour but its dainty pink head pulls it back.
A raspberry ripple ice cream aroma. Very sweet and creamy. A grand fresh fruity flavour not too sweet or too sour (which is how I like it) but a good balance. A nice little number that remains surprisingly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of tart, mildly acidic raspberries, maybe blended with some other fruity/fruit juicy notes, strawberry in particular. Flavor the same, quite juicelike, but tart enough to keep it from being nothing but juice. Maybe a touch of graham cracker/light graininess in there as well. Not the most exciting beer ever to say the least, but not terrible either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pour into a flute red-ochre slightly lighter and amber tinted at the base of the with a thin white head that quickly subsides into a ring. Fragrant raspberry both sweetly floral and tart, slightly taffyish malty, a hint of citrus and a vinous component overall. Flavor is spicy like wheat, raspberry fruity up front, very sweet around the sides, maltier as it warms, slightly tart around the center, slightly citric bitter further on and vinous around the back. Seems to also carry a woody or perhaps pit induced bitterness in the aftertaste. Palate is light bodied making for a good summer beer and has a playful peppery carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet raspberry for sure. A slight sweet tart taste combined with the malts. Not medicinal and has a lot of good qualities. Body and drinkability. Nice fruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
More reddish than brown pour with white-tinged head. Aroma of malt and raspberries. Little tart and partially sweet tasting. After taste is a bit dry but the flavors of the beer are still present. Not that familiar with fruit beers, but I like this one.
