2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smelled pretty malty when I first opened it. Poured dark pink. Originally malty with a hint of raspberry. As it aired out the raspberry became a lot more evident, should probably let this one sit in the glass a good five minutes before drinking. It’s not overly complex and just has a hint of sour raspberry, but I liked it more than something like Fruli which is far too sweet. I got this in a Costco pack and there was only a single bottle inside but I’d pick up a six pack for a hot summer day. You have to have it really cold though outside in the heat.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Robe cuivrée claire avec un mince col de mousse. Rien n’indique une présence de framboises. Arômes de confitures de baies, un peu de citron, miel et léger malt caramélisé. En bouche, baies sucrées et sans aucun doute artificielles, cocktail aux framboises, miel, citron, caramel. À boire très froide car les saveurs deviennent fades et le fruité prend le large au détriment du malt. Texture un peu aqueuse, corps mince.

Watery red colour. Watery fruity taste. This is basically a glass of crystal clear with booze.

Clear reddish gold pour with thin foam and active carbonation. Smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Mild tartness at the end. Raspberry flavor dominates but touches of yeast come through. Overall effect is a little disappointing. The raspberry flavor seemed mannered, almost artificial.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: hazy red-tinged deep gold with a short-lived white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: raspberry, grassy, pale crackery malt. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, dry slightly astringent finish. (3/5)
This is one of those very rare beers that I think could actually stand to be a bit sweeter. There’s some (somewhat fake-smelling) raspberry there, but it’s so very dry and astringent that it’s tasting more like berry seeds than flesh, or maybe watermelon peel. I’m not sure more sweetness would have made it taste any less artificial, but it might be a little more palatable. (10/20)

Pours a thin, white foamy quick dissipating head atop a peachy coloured body. Nose of sweet raspberry jam. The flavour is more subtle and seedy with a watery sweet dry finish. Okay.

Quite mild raspberry flavour, pinkish clear in colour. It needs to be sour to be a good beer with this fruit flavour. And it should not be a part of their variety packs.

Can from the brewery. Hazy pinkish-red. The head died down fairly quickly. Smells berryish, but bland and artificial. Light body, bit fizzy. Pretty sweet, bland, with some raspberry taste. Drinkable, but that’s about it. About what you’d expect for this type of beer from a larger brewery.
