3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits, 2013 vintage. Pours a deep, ruby red color with a thin white head. Aroma is raspberry jam, and not much else. Medium on the palate with light, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, raspberry, a little cereal breadiness, some light tartness, with a sweet raspberry finish. A little sweeter than New Glarus, and not nearly as interesting for me. But a nice fruit beer just the same,

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful deep red with a medium pinkish head. Aroma is fresh raspberries, some raspberry jam, and a strong malt background. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, with the raspberries very present but not dominating. Finish is surprisingly dry. Medium bodied, sticky, well carbonated. Really solid offering, much better than Cerise was for sure.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pink color that turns into a red brown once in the glass and has a tight soapy off white head that slowly fades to a film and coating collar. Aroma is raspberry puree and malt with subtle hidden yeast. Taste is sweet tart candied raspberries and malt with subtle yeast qualities. Palate is medium with a fizzy soft carbonation and finishes dry and chalky. This is a solid fruit beer with awesome sweet fruit flavors and even better, keeping it real beer taste!

Bottle from Blue Max, reddish/purple pour with a thin white head. Aroma of raspberries, malt and some earthiness. Taste is a big raspberries pop with lots of malt, almost like a wine cooler. Decent body, nice carbonation finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 June 26, 2013 via 12 ounce bottle. Reddish purple pour with big light pink head that left nice lacing. Aroma was malt and raspberry. Taste was sweet with a nice tart raspberry finish. Thin to medium body and easy drinking, soft carbonation and a touch creamy.

Deep pink to purple pour with soft pink head. Nose is a nice refreshing raspberry (nice, but moderate) with some light wheat malt. Flavor is a full raspberry flavor, lightly tart, again ending with some wheat malt. Very good fruit profile overall and better than 99% of fruit beers out there. Unfortunately NG Raspberry tart is better and local. Great stuff, though!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours red with mid-sized, pinkish head. Aroma is of sour fruit/raspberry. Flavor is a sweet combination of raspberry and beer. It’s pretty good, but nothing like the fruit beers New Glarus puts out. Still, I’d say it’s the best non-NG fruit beer I’ve tried.

Solid and refreshing but not overly sweet. Unfortunately not showing up on my beer buddy app, frustrating.

bottle. As a lover of raspberries i had to try. Not a fan of fruity beer as i dont like their cherry one but this is tart enough to overcome any prejudice of mine. Not bad but I couldnt do more than one. Smells like fruit juice. Tastes like fruit juice with kick.
