Bottle from brewery. Pours a slightly hazy washed out amber. Aroma of raspberry and bread. Taste starts off with bready malts, then a little raspberry, leading to a nice tangy and bitter finish. Good body and carbonation. A solid fruit beer.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
A blonde pils with a thin white head. In aroma, nice raspberry pulp with light acidic points, and light mineral notes. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with cork notes, raspberry pulp, a bit astringent. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, July 26, 2012.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Pours pale gold with a white head. The aroma is of very ripe raspberries, with a bit of floral hops. The taste is characteristic of a Pilsner- crisp malt and hops, well balanced. My only complaint is that the raspberry and pilsner components don’t really combine to make a greater whole, which is the case with some fruit/beer style combinations.

On Tap at C’est What?. Golden pour, very little head. Aroma of berries, and light grains. The raspberry, and berry flavors very annoying, and cloying, and taste more and more artificial.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2011 This Beer had a very easy drinking taste to it. Aroma was low but thats not what I would want out of a beer like this, really light raspberry taste. I would try this again but not going to go out of my way to do that

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle.Pours a golden yellow.. no hint of the Raspberry in the view.. strong natural "fresh" raspberry in the nose. its not a well balenced fruit beer, it tastes like the hanneberg with fresh rapberries, that being said its a nice, light satisfying beer for a hot summers day.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2010
Draught at C’est What. Pours a clear orange with a small diminishing creamy white head. Aroma of sweet, semi-artificial raspberry, pale malt and grain. Flavour: Again, the raspberry seems artificial to me, along with grain and not much else. Very light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Many pints at Chancey Smith’s, in London, ON- Murky muddy brown pour with a frothy bleached white head. Leaves some lace on my glass. The nose has fresh fruit (raspberry), hay, candy, and floral hops. Tastes of raspberry juice, fresh hops, leafy greens, and is slightly metallic. Medium-light body, lingering bitterness and raspberry finish. Good, but won’t be returning to it in the future.

Sampled at the C’est What spring festival 28/05/10. Nope...sorry. This one falls short. There is certainly raspberry in the taste and a slightly sharp hop bite but it all works against itself and ultimately doesn’t work. Decent but underwhelming.

[2891-20100528] Tap. Nice fruity raspberry yeast aroma. Clear, light orange pink body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lots of raspberry fruit in the flavour with a long sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Nice and juicy, drinkable, a bit like a cooler though.
(CWSF 2010 @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)
