Aroma: Bright raspberry aromas. Appearance: Dark Amber with a reddish hue. Taste: Light sweetness with a medium sourness. Palate: Light body, heavy oily texture, flat carbonation, sweet finish. Overall: A bit to cough syrupy for me, but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a fruit beer this was really good but I think I could only handle one of these. Despite the smokiness of the bar I detected a strong raspberry and other kinds of berries in the aroma. It looked like cranberry juice. Average palate. Sharp berry flavors with raspberry being out front. Some tartness but a little too sweet for my tendencies.

Lovely fruity raspberry aroma. Reddish, small brief head. Lovely raspberry taste too. Sweet, but with just a little berry tartness to keep it refreshing. Lovely full palate, pleasant carbonation. Drinkability massive. Moreish if anything. One of the hedonistically most impressive raspberry beers I remember - tickles my pleasure glands.

330ml bottle. Deep red with one finger pale pink head fading quickly. Aroma of sweet raspberries, wheat, slight tartness and red fruit pits. Taste is initially sweet caramel and raspberry giving way to more raspberries and some wheat character and ending in artificial rapberry taste and a minimal tart note. Light, refreshing mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A little too sweet and, at times, artificial tasting for my taste, I would have prefferred more tartness and depth to the flavors, but still a nice refreshing summer beer.

Pour is ruby red w/ a tiny white head that doesn’t leave any lacing. The aroma is robust w/ raspberry. The flavor is clean, smooth, & as described a lovely balance between sweet & tart! Thankfully & perfectly done, the raspberry isn’t over the top & just adds to the nice malt character which is delightful on the palate! Founders once again knocks 1 out of the park!

On tap. Pours a hazy raspberry red with a light pink head and lacing. It has a rich raspberry aroma and the same flavor, with a not-too-sweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle deep ruby color with a thin white head. Aromas of fresh sweet fruit and raspberry. Taste is sweet with a nice balanced finish. Good for a hot day.
